What I never expected is that I would harvest grapes not in Italy, but right here in my home state of Kansas. Amazing. Last summer we received an invitation to KMUW's Grape Harvest Gathering at Grace Hill Winery north of Wichita. Who knew such a fun, ecotourist experience was waiting for us less than an hour from our home...and is waiting for you to experience too.
Once the day's harvest was complete, the group went into the event area for a lunch and wine tasting provided by the winery.

Not into grape harvesting? Plan a free wine tasting of some great local wines. Just contact the winery for more info.
