Grape Stomp: 3:30pm -6:30pm
Wood Fire Pizza buffet: 4pm-6pm
Bocce Challenge: 5pm-6pm
Come crush some grapes like they did in the old days and recreate that famous "I Love Lucy" scene with your friends. These custom made grape crushing platforms are a fun and festive way to celebrate like an old world Italian crush party. We'll guide and walk you through the process and have some fun and laughs along the way. Use the live music as motivation to squish and dance your way to produce some serious juice.
Don't worry, we won't be drinking or using these grapes or juice. We've got plenty of our best stuff in bottle for you to taste instead.
LIVE MUSIC - STEVE SIACOTOS AKA THE HUMAN JUKEBOX
If you have a favorite song, chances are he can play it. Steve will be keeping us all groovin' in the Grove all day long!
Bocce Ball Games
FERNWOOD BOCCE BALL CHALLENGE
One of the oldest games known to man and played all over the world. Bocce is a great social game meant for everyone and is a perfect sport to pair with wine tasting. Plainly put-you get the big ball closer to the little ball. Simplicity is fundamental to bocce as the object of the game is to get as many of your teams bocce balls as close to the target ball, the pallino, as possible.
For our event you are welcome to play and compete against other guests and then later use your skills in our Bocce Ball Challenge contest. We will have a quick turn and toss tournament to determine who has the best touch and get the ball closest to the target. Winner gets a special Large Format wine from Matt.
Set in the majestic backdrop of The Grove at Redwood Retreat there is simply nothing like this court and setup. Come to play, watch or cheer!
A UNIQUE BOCCE COURT WITH A MAJESTIC SETTING
Wood Fired Pizza
HAND MADE WOOD FIRED PIZZA BY - FELICE FORNO
The story of FELICE FORNO begins long ago in the small Italian village of Donnici in Calabria. When members of the Felice family immigrated from Donnici to the United States in the 1920s, they brought with them a tradition of fine Italian cooking in wood fired ovens.
Rico Felice grew up surrounded by his big family and lots of great Italian food, including classic Neapolitan style pizzas. Come taste a variety of complimentary slices of these amazing tasting pizzas.
FRESH INGREDIENTS, SAUCE AND DOUGH.
Felice Forno specializes in hand-stretched Neapolitan-style pizzas, baked on-site in our specially designed mobile wood fired oven or in your personal wood fired oven. We use only the finest ingredients, including locally-sourced produce and cheeses whenever possible.
Made fresh and fast in their mobile wood fired pizza while you watch!
When you first lay your eyes on the cute, little Moto-Espresso Coffee Cart you know you’re in for some real fun. Experience the European style, on the spot coffee or espresso drink. This little yellow three wheeled Vespa Ape (pronounced Ah-pay which means Bee in Italian) will provide you with the perfect pick-me-up for later in the evening.
Complimentary to our guests, sample a variety of roasts and specialty coffee drinks to complete the Italian experience while at Fernwood Cellars.
