At Harvest, the winery is buzzing. So many new faces and new trucks with great looking fruit are rolling in. Don't blink because you might miss something!

I observed and documented the hustle & bustle outside the building for my first harvest. As a member of the Marketing Department, I had the opportunity to take some videos of picking, sorting and punch downs to share with all of our social media followers. The fruit was beautiful this year, and everyone continues to comment on that. The smell of grapes fermenting was in the air, and I enjoyed how alive the winery became during harvest with exciting things happening everywhere. It was fun to see everyone come together to create what we're all so passionate about: our incredible wine!

We are excited to announce that the REX HILL Tasting Room will be getting an upgrade! Renovations will take place over the winter months, with a planned Grand Reopening party in the spring.

Although the historic REX HILL Tasting Room will be closed, we will be open for tastings and tours in our A to Z hospitality space beginning December 6 and look forward to sharing that beautiful modern space with all of you in the interim.

Temporary Tasting Room Hours (starting December 6th)
