Paradisos del Sol Winery and Organic VineyardCatch the Crush is a fun idea! We are doing a micro-crush experience for our patrons.  A hands-IN demonstration of how we analyze grapes for ripeness, how we determine if it is time to pick.  We will set you up to crush and press grapes to create a small glass of grape juice for analysis.  We will also teach you how to taste a grape to evaluate the important parameters of taste. You will learn why winegrowers are extra sweet this time of year!  Grapes, sieves, test tubes, centrifuge, refractometer, pH meter, and glasses included, you provide the taste buds. And your fingers.  Come join us for this enhanced tasting experience for Catch the Crush weekend. It will also include our usual wine tasting of a small plate with micro-portions of yummy nibbles to accompany each of our wines.  $10 tasting with Catch the Crush experience included.  P.S.
