Carmel, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
Bernardus Lodge, Carmel’s premier luxury and boutique hotel and winery, will be holding its first annual Bernardus Grape Crush & Oyster Shuck event on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. Cost of the event is $95 per person (tax and gratuity included in the price) and guests can live out their 'exotic labor' dreams by crushing grapes with their bare feet and shucking oysters in a beautiful resort hotel setting.
Bernardus Lodge and Winery dreamt up this unique and very exciting event to mark the annual grape harvest that takes part in the heart of the Carmel Valley wine country every October.
Everyone knows that one thing that always accompanies wine best is a succulent oyster, so Bernardus Lodge has invited Morro Bay Oyster Company to aid in kicking off the afternoon with a helpful oyster shucking and Bloody Mary bar. The afternoon will pay homage to the season with grape stomping, live music and a family style vineyard lunch.
"We invite you to witness our harvest firsthand and celebrate the culmination of a solid year's worth of work, care and expertise,” said Wine Maker Dean DeKorth.
