Fall is a glorious time at Moulton Falls Winery in scenic Yacolt, not just because the surrounding landscape is bursting into vibrant autumn colors, but also because it’s harvest time. All the grapes are being harvested, crushed, and bottled, and local apples and other fruits are being turned into delicious ciders. It’s time to celebrate with a Moulton Falls-style Halloween Party on Saturday, Oct. 28.
There will be live music by 60s & 70s tribute band Echoes of Yasgurs, a costume contest with prizes, the release of a new Sangiovese, beer and cider on tap, and a special “witch’s brew.” (What’s in it? We can’t tell you, but rest assured, it’s probably not eye of newt.) Moulton Falls ciders on tap include Yellowstone, Pine-Bear (pineapple-raspberry), Ripsaw Raspberry, and Tart Cherry. Beers on tap include Arson Amber, Transcend IPA, Vantucky Pale Ale, and R.I.P. Porter. Ciders and beers are both available by the glass for $7, or you can purchase your own 32-ounce squealers or 64-ounce growlers to take home. The wood fired oven will be stoked up and turning out pizzas, calzones and other treats, and salads and sandwiches will be available from the kitchen.
The winery opens at noon on Saturdays, and the winery is a delightful place to spend an afternoon, either indoors or outdoors when the weather is fine. Sample some wines and enjoy the view and refresh yourselves with nibbles from the kitchen.
