Our first winter at the Winery started off with decorating for the holidays in mid November. We used a lot of greenery outside, including swags along our fence posts and a garland around the entrance way. Left over pine branches were arranged in various containers, ranging from flower pots to milk crates. New light stands were wrapped around the grapevine garland along our fence rail so all the lights were brightly shining.
Inside the tasting room we kept decorations simple, since we don’t have very much space. We hung red Christmas balls on gold ribbons in all our windows, and places battery operated candles (which are covered in actual wax) below. Some candles were placed in wreaths, others on candleholders or in lanterns.
You may have noticed our arrow above the wine rack, which holds seasonal ornaments. For the winter we chose a Red Cardinal and we strung a green garland through the top of the wine rack. The music changed to holiday classics to help spread even more cheer.
Anja made festive bottle ornaments, complete with tags, transforming any of our wines into a perfect holiday gift.
Throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas, Rachel and Samantha were busy organizing various craft and painting activities at the winery. Some were scheduled classes, others were “drop in” events to make bottle and cork crafts.
