Yes, there’s a certain amount of work involved.
But you’ll never hear anyone attending the Sonoma County Grape Camp complain about it.
That’s because camp attendees signed up for the work, which involves harvesting grapes.
It’s also because there’s a lot of “play” involved at the camp, in addition to the work.
In 2011, the camp is scheduled for September 20-22, and campers will stay at the posh Kenwood Inn & Spa.
The first night, chef Douglas Keane of the acclaimed Cyrus Restaurant will prepare dinner at the new Williams Selyem Winery.
Another big-name estate, Jordan Vineyards & Winery, will host another dinner.
And when campers aren’t eating or sleeping – or picking grapes – they’ll be visiting other estates and sampling lots of great wines.
Yes, there is a price to pay for all this fun. It’s $1,850 per person, double occupancy, plus a $150 surcharge for single travelers.
But just think of the letters from camp you’ll be able to write.
