Tasting Bar Takeover with Jake Busching
Join Eastwood’s Head Winemaker, Jake Busching, for a tasting bar takeover on Friday, December 22. Earlier this fall, we announced that Jake was joining the Eastwood team and leading the rollout of Eastwood’s new production facility and winemaker incubator. We are thrilled to welcome him to the winery for a special night of tastings. Jake will be pouring four wines from the Jake Busching Wines collection, two whites (2022 Sauvignon Blanc, 2019 Blend) and two reds (2021 Cabernet Franc, 2017 F8). Guided tastings are happening on a rolling basis. Don’t miss an opportunity to try these wines. Stop by for a free tasting and meet Jake!
Glasses and bottles of these Jake Busching Wines will be available for sale. Enjoy a glass at the winery and stock up on bottles for the holidays.
Eastwood’s full menu with delicious food, housemade mulled wine, on tap beers and ciders, award-winning wines, s’mores and more will also be available. Join us for snacks or dinner and enjoy live music on the stage by Erynn Legna McLeod from 5-8.
