Blossom Day

A Celebration of Blossoms, Bounty, and Beauty on Old Mission Peninsula


Saturday, May 16, 2015

Bring on spring! On Old Mission Peninsula, that means new wine releases. Relish samples of WOMP's newest vintages, as well as spring's arrival to Old Mission Peninsula. The wineries invite you to a day of tasting their new releases while enjoying fresh, spring-inspired food pairings. Several stops will even offer a chance to chat with WOMP winemakers about the grape-to-glass winemaking process, as well as offering limited barrel and tank tastings. (Try them before they’re ready to bottle!) It’s been a cold, cold winter. Thaw out with WOMP!

There are transportation companies which you may hire separately from the event, but most guests simply drive themselves.  The entire peninsula is only 19 miles long and five miles at its widest, so all wineries are within a just a few miles of each other. Click here for a list of transport companies if you'd like to hire a shuttle tour. 

Tickets are available online here for $25 per person, plus processing.


Update:

The wineries are cooking up some inspired spring cuisine that pairs oh-so-nicely with new releases and fresh blossoms.


Black Star Farms – Spring Vegetable Orzo Salad with Farro and Barley
Brys Estate – Chocolate Mousse Flower Pots paired with their brand new Wally's Wineyard, Lucky
