Join Pippin Hill for our Fall Equinox celebration on Saturday, September 21st, a progressive agritourism experience culminating with a sunset alfresco wine dinner.
The Fall Equinox marks the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn. For us, it means harvest season has officially arrived – our grapes are ripe for picking and our Kitchen Garden is in full abundance. The waters of the Chesapeake Bay begin to cool – welcoming the first ‘r’ month synonymous with oyster season. It will also mark the first full season we’ve had our apiary, home to more than 300,000 Pippin Hill bees.
Upon arrival, guests will be guided throughout the grounds and gardens stopping along at culinary and agro stations where they will participate in interactive demonstrations and the following mini-workshops:
- Vineyard Grape Tasting & Winemaking
- Grilling on the Big Green Egg with Seven Hills Farm
- Kitchen Garden Harvesting
- Beekeeping with Elysium Bee
After the stations, we will sit down together and share a 3-course harvest meal with wine pairings under the stars.
Our team of experts and farm partners will be onsite to lead you through this evening on the farm. Learn alongside our certified horticulturist Diane Burns, gardener Celina DeBrito, viticulturist Chris Hill, vineyard manager Brooks Hoover, farmer Matt McCaskill, executive chef Ian Rynecki, and beekeepers from Elysium Honey.
Tickets are $125 per person.
The event is rain or shine so comfortable walking shoes are recommended!
