Make plans to visit Villa del Monte Winery during  The Summit Wineries Harvest Festival weekend!  On October 1 and 2, The Summit Wineries*, a wine trail consisting of five wineries in the Summit Road vicinity in Los Gatos, will host special tastings in celebration of the 2011 harvest.

Villa del Monte Winery will be open from noon to 5 pm on both days.  While tasting our award-winning wines, you can watch local artist Caeli Perrelli at work painting pumpkins, sunflowers and other harvest themes.  (Paintings will be for sale during the Harvest Festival.)

We are harvesting Pinot, Syrah, and Zin this week, all of which will be fermenting in the winery next weekend so be sure to ask if you can help us “punch down the cap.”

*Each winery’s tasting fee/policy applies.  At Villa del Monte, tastings are $5 per person, refundable with purchase.
