We are happy to announce that we are now offering our Adopt-A-Vine program again, for a new planting that will be happening this Spring! We are adding an acre of Mourvedre to the vineyard across from the Winery and have decided to again offer our “Adopt A Vine” program. Just in time for the holidays, this would make a great gift for any wine lover!
Mourvedre is a new varietal for us here at Rosemont and we are excited to finally work with it. In the Rhône region of France, it is typically blended with Syrah and Grenache to make a blend that we call a GSM. It generally has a fuller body with dark fruit flavors and we are looking forward to blending it with Syrah or seeing it on its own in the future!
This new planting will only include 12 rows of grapes! This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about what goes into making your bottle of wine. Adopting a row of vines will allow you to get in on the “ground level” and see just what is involved with establishing a vineyard!
Adoption Cost: $300
To participate in this exciting and educational program, we are offering a one-time payment of $300, plus tax. In addition to a handsome plaque engraved with your name that will be displayed on your adopted row of vines for the next 40 to 50 years, you will also receive the following unique experience and benefits:
2021 | Planting: Join us in April to plant some of the vines in your row. Date TBD.
2022 | Learn to Prune: Join us in March to learn the art of pruning your vines. Date TBD.
2023 | Train Your Vine: Join us in March to prune and train your vine for the year ahead. Date TBD.
2023 | Harvest: Help harvest your grapes! Date TBD.
2023 | Harvest Party! We’ll host a large harvest party for a successful harvest. Date TBD.
2024 | Barrel Tasting: Join us to taste the first wines made from your vines!
2025| Receive your 1st bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2023 vintage.
2026 | Receive your 2nd bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2024 vintage.
2027 | Receive your 3rd bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2025 vintage.
Of course, you can visit your adopted vines at any time to check on their progress and see how they’re growing! Talking to them helps encourage them to produce great fruit – we do it all the time!
