At one table every­one has to iden­tify com­mon wine scents from small vials. At the next table you blend your own wine, and then at another you cre­ate your own label, and so on. Points are awarded by the Wine and Label Judges cho­sen from within your own ranks. Since the labels are often designed to be hilar­i­ous, fun is had by all when a mem­ber from each group presents and explains their label cre­ations to the whole group. One of the teams will be awarded the win­ner, will it be yours? A min­i­mum of 15 peo­ple is required to par­tic­i­pate. Can­not be booked before 5:00 p.m. on Sat­ur­days or Sun­days due to pub­lic tour volume.
