2013 Harvest Party Highlight #1: The Horse-Drawn Wagon

We are inching closer to Labor day weekend (woohoo!), but you need a little break from work right now, correct?  Well, let us assist with that as we start our Harvest Party Highlights for this year’s event!

This first one is idyllic and I am personally very excited about it…horse-drawn wagon rides around the vineyard!  Many of our guests in the past have gotten a chance to walk up to the vineyard and taste our Cabernet grapes, while learning wonderful information from our winemaker/owner (my dad), David Parrish.  This year Outback Trail Rides will be joining us with their beautiful horses and wagon to give guests a bigger view of our Creston vineyard.

Horses were a huge part of our family as we used to do rides together around our farm and at parades.  We even took a few backpacking trips with our horses.  Being able to have the horses apart of the event this year is significant to us as we want guests to truly experience a Parrish Family gathering.   Guests will be able to enjoy their wine on a 30 minute ride with views of this year’s fruit as well as the open countryside of the ranch.  This glimpse of our vineyard and countryside is special since it is usually only seen by staff, family, and close friends.  There really isn’t much more that needs to be said as it is…beautiful views, horses, wine, and great company…life doesn’t get much better!

For more information about our event, go to: www.parrishfamilyvineyard.com.  For reservations, email events@parrishfamilyvineyard.com or call 805-286-4028 to talk to one of our awesome tasting room hosts!

Cheers and best wishes to the 3 day weekend!
