Welcome to the heart of winter at Delaplane Cellars, where the cold air is crisp, the wine is rich, and the experiences are unforgettable. As we embrace the quieter season of the vineyard, we invite you to join us for a series of special events and exciting releases. Whether you're looking to cozy up in an igloo, craft your own blend, or simply enjoy the vineyard with your four-legged friend, we have something for everyone this winter.
1. The Igloo Experience
Our Igloo Experience has become the highlight of the season, and for good reason. Available Friday through Sunday, our igloos offer a private and cozy space for you and five friends to enjoy the best of Delaplane Cellars, complete with seasonal charcuterie, toasty heaters, and your favorite playlist humming through the speakers. Don't miss out on this unique way to enjoy wine country this winter.
2. Blending Sessions
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at winemaking? Now's your chance with our Blending Sessions on March 2nd & 3rd. Join our winemaker, Rick Tagg, and learn the delicate art of blending to create your perfect vintage. This hands-on experience is a rare opportunity to dive deep into the winemaking process and take home a bottle of your own creation.
3. Club Pickup Event
Club members, get ready for the first club pickup of the year from February 1st - 4th! We've curated a selection of your favorite wines to start the new year off right. It's the perfect opportunity to stock your cellar with wines that promise to ward off the winter chill.
4. Member Nights
For our club members, we will continue to host Club Night on every third Saturday of the month from 6-8pm. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of our vineyard at night, taste our finest wines, and mingle with fellow wine enthusiasts. Each Club Night features a unique (and complimentary) tasting.
