Nouveau Celebration 2022

Join us in celebrating the first wine of the 2022 harvest! Enjoy a glass of our Nouveau wine and hearty seasonal hors d’oeuvres from Veraisons, outdoors among the fall foliage. We'll have live music throughout the afternoon as well.

Our annual Nouveau celebration began in 1977, the year we were established, as a way of celebrating our first harvest and we’ve continued the tradition every year since over our 40+ year history.

Each year, our Nouveau wine undergoes a quick primary fermentation before being racked and put in a wooden cask. The resulting wine is intensely fresh and fruity. We invite you to join us for a taste of our 2022 Nouveau wine straight from the cask!

Farm Sanctuary's Celebration for the Turkeys

For the first time since 2019, we are back in person with Farm Sanctuary’s beloved annual event: Celebration for the Turkeys! This annual event is well-loved for its inspiring speakers, time spent at Farm Sanctuary, and experiences of community and connection with fellow guests and farm animals.

Join us for this year’s event on November 5 as we express gratitude for the animals who call Farm Sanctuary home and celebrate the powerful ways we can grow and come together as a community. Whether you will be a returning regular to Celebration for the Turkeys, or visiting for the first time, this is a great opportunity to experience Farm Sanctuary as we work to provide refuge for animals exploited by factory farms and promote a more just, compassionate, and sustainable food system. Visit our website to purchase tickets!
