Some of the Best Ideas Start Small

A Nice Day For A White Wine

The Wine Press is proud to announce our white wine day event

In the fall we begin a two day event in which you will learn to make your own white wine with other local white wine lovers.

The day will start with delicious pastries and white wine sangria. On the first day, each person in attendance will learn to crush and press their grapes. Seven months later, we will invite you back to bottle and label your wine. It’s that simple! Choose from four varieties; Sauvignon Blanc, California Style Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and a White Muscat.

– Don’t Miss Out! –

Each spot available is for two cases of your chosen wine (24 x 750ml wine bottles).
Contact us to join the event or see our events page for upcoming scheduling dates.

Same Day Wine

Come visit our customized 6500 square foot facility, the first in Connecticut

Crush it – Bottle it – Drink it

Sunday October 11th

Experience the tradition of wine making all in one day. From crushing the grapes to bottling the wine. We will walk you through each step explaining what it takes to achieve award winning wine. Taste the grapes before we crush, sip sangria freshly made in house, and follow us over to the press to learn how to separate the juice from the skins. Lastly, you will learn to fill and cork, two of your very own bottles of wine. We’d like to invite you to bring in snacks and relax after the fun, or visit the food truck out front. This event has three time slots available; 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. Please book ahead to assure your spot. This Year’s Wine will be made in the “Chianti” or, “Super Tuscan” style. A Sangiovese Blend; light, fruity, & tannic with just enough acid and an earthy feel.

– Tickets –

$75 per person (includes two free bottles of wine). Call now, availability is limited.
