Crush: 2021 Syrah

Date(s) - 09/06/2021
3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Grant St Winery

2+2This event open ONLY to Garagistes who are 2+2 vaccinated (that is, it’s been 2 weeks since your second shot).

First crush of 2021: Syrah

We’ll be bringing in about 1000 lbs of Syrah, child’s play for us at this point in our Garagistes careers. I’ll head out relatively early to get the grapes when they’re still cool from their early morning pick, so I should be back by early afternoon. Since it’ll be Labor Day, we can get started then instead of wait for the end of the work day — we’ll easily be done by dinner!

Personally, I’d love to toast the start of the season with you after we’re done, but let’s see how we’re all feeling.

If anyone wants extra Garagistes kudos, it’d be great to give the crusher/destemmer a thorough cleaning before we dive into the season. If you’re up for doing that, please let me know by text or in the comments.

We’ll all be vaccinated, and we’ll either be outside or have doors and windows open, but I’ll be wearing a mask just for extra safety.

  • Need 8 people total (including Matt)
  • Bring a mask you’re comfortable wearing
  • Assume 2 hours of cleaning and organizing
  • Wear shoes or boots you can get wet
  • Bring a post-crush snack to share if you’re able

COVID-19 NOTE: Vaccinated or not, if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or sudden loss of sense of smell, PLEASE STAY HOME.

Bookings are closed for this event.
