Are you a wine enthusiast? Are you looking for a unique experience? Are you wanting to expand your knowledge in wine making and wine growing? There is so much to learn and explore during a tour at Celista Estate Winery.
Join Owner, Jake Ootes on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting in June 26th for his very informative and always entertaining tours of the vineyard and winery, ending in the tasting room for a sampling of all our wines!
The vineyard plays and important role with your tour. Learn about how the grapes are grown and the properties of the wines, how the wine is prepared or how certain techniques affect the flavor. There are different varietals which have different characteristics and blending two or more together, is true art. Jake is a master storyteller and the history of the Baile & Ootes Vineyard and how it came to be Celista Estate Winery and their extremely exciting life and background, will fascinate you.
Wine tours are $5.00 per person. Please come a few minutes early and purchase your ticket in the tasting room. Jake and/or one of our staff, will meet you up at the gazebo at the start of the tour.
Social distancing rules in effect. The tour takes place outdoors in the vineyard and outside the winery, with tastings in groups of 6 or less following the tour. Please follow all COVID-19 safety precautions and if you feel unwell, please do not attend a tour.
