2024 Hands on Harvest

Celebrate Fantesca’s 20th Anniversary at our Fête du Fall Hands On Harvest, an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in Napa Valley’s harvest season.

Join us in celebrating Fantesca’s 20th Anniversary of winemaking at our annual Fête du Fall Hands On Harvest gathering. Hosted by Proprietors Susan and Duane Hoff, with special appearances by Heidi Barrett, Tony Arcudi, and DLynn Proctor, this event is an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in the essence of Napa Valley’s harvest season.

Begin your day with a toast to the newest harvest, accompanied by delightful small bites. Then get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into the world of winemaking with hands-on activities and, weather permitting, join us in harvesting a small batch of grapes for our 2024 Vintage of Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

After light vineyard activities, guests will travel to Susan and Duane Hoff’s private estate, passing through our Spring Mountain cave that houses barrels for future vintages. Enjoy a serene outdoor setting with a catered family-style lunch, featuring our 2021 All Great Things Cabernet Blend, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, and additional library pours from Susan and Duane’s cellar.

Hands On Harvest is more than just an event; it’s a celebration of the vibrant spirit of the growing season and the exquisite wines it produces. Join us for this unique experience, raise a glass, and toast to two decades of exceptional winemaking at Fantesca.
