Harvest at our Cyril Vineyards
We are going to be harvesting Saturday, August 6, at 6:30am (yes, that is AM). We need to harvest before the grapes get heated up for the day. We know it is early, but we will make it worth your while. We promise you a day you will remember fondly!
Coming from the North:
Take I-44 (H.E. Bailey Turnpike) to exit 62 (Cyril/Fletcher exit). Head north on Whitfield Road (left at the end of the ramp). Whitfield Road will eventually turn west and intersect with Rt. 277. Go south (left) on Rt. 277 for 1 mile to E. 1480 Rd. Turn east (left) onto E. 1480 Rd. Road narrows to one lane of gravel. You will see the farm straight ahead. Drive is marked "Kaiser Lane." Total drive is about 10 minutes off the highway.
Coming from the South:
Take I-44 (H.E. Bailey Turnpike) to exit 53 (Elgin exit). Head east (right) on Rt. 277. Technically, you're on 277 N, but the road is going due east at this point. Stay on 277, which turns north shortly. When you pass the Comanche-Caddo County Line, which is about 6 miles, you'll take the next right (east) on E. 1480 Rd. Road narrows to one lane of gravel. You will see the farm straight ahead. Drive is marked "Kaiser Lane." Total drive is 17 minutes off the highway.
Convoy to the Winery
It is a very easy 20 mile drive to the winery from our Cyril Vineyards (also known as Forbidden Fruits Farm). Depending on the harvest, we may ask volunteers to help transport the grapes (in buckets).
Brunch at the Winery
When we get to the winery, volunteers who helped harvest will be treated to a delicious brunch farm-to-table style! If you can't get out of bed in time to help with the harvest, you are still welcome to join us for brunch in the Dining Room. Check out this great menu!
Grape Stomping & Costume Contest
Get in on the fun and help us crush the grapes! We will have a costume contest, as well! Our guests sporting the most authentic Dionysus (Goddess of Wine) and Bacchus (God of Wine) costumes will each win a $25 gift certificate to the winery! If you prefer to dress like Lucy, in the iconic scene, feel free. We can assure you that you won't be the only one there taking photos for this year's Christmas card!
