As the annual harvest winds down and the season’s winemaking continues to progress, another annual Holiday tradition will be weaving its way into high gear.

Wreathmaking classes, using grapevine canes pruned from Hill Family Estate’s now-dormant vines from their Yountville vineyards, is a favorite end-of-year activity that allows participants to exercise their creativity while learning a new art.

Since hosting classes in person has been the norm in the past, this year Hill Family Estate Winery, one of the premier Yountville wineries, will be reaching participants through a virtual format.

With Zoom, the virtual platform that most of us have become adept at using this year, our Grapevine Wreathmaking Classes will occur each Tuesday at 5:00 PM PST.

The first class will be presented on Tuesday, November 24, just before Thanksgiving. The final one will be on Tuesday, December 22. So you will have plenty of time to make sure your beautiful creations will be ready for your favorite holidays.

Here is the Wreathmaking schedule:

  • Tuesday, November 24, 5:00 PM
  • Tuesday, December 1, 5:00 PM
  • Tuesday, December 8, 5:00 PM
  • Tuesday, December 15, 5:00 PM
  • Tuesday, December 22, 5:00 PM

Since each class will be limited to twelve persons only, make your reservations as soon as possible. Smaller groups allow the instructor to offer individual attention and suggestions to ensure each participant enjoys a productive experience.
