Crush Fest at Heisen House Vineyards

Heisen House Vineyards invites you to join the excitement of the fall grape harvest at its annual Crush Festival, happening from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30—followed by an evening of live music from 6 to 9 p.m. Grape crushing will start at 2 p.m., when Heisen House vintners will start making wine right in front of you, running the equipment, and explaining the whole glorious process. There will be music, food, an Artist and Merchant Market, wine making demonstrations, wine tasting, fresh grapes for munching, craft activities for the kids, and more. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about winemaking, this is your chance to see it up close and personal. It’s also a family-friendly event where you can bring the kids and spend the whole afternoon!

Admission is free, but there’s a suggested donation of $5 per adult or $3 per child; all donations will go towards repairing and restoring the Heisen property’s historic barn. In fact, the whole vineyard is of historical significance: the Henry Heisen House and related outbuildings are a State and National Historic Site. Heisen House is located about 10 minutes northeast of Battle Ground at 28005 N.E. 172nd Ave., not too far from the Heisen Bridge over the East Fork Lewis River.

Lavender Festival at Heisen House Vineyards

It’s peak season for lavender in the Northwest, and local lavender-lovers are invited to come and celebrate this vibrant, versatile, fragrant flower at Heisen House Vineyards. The seventh annual Lavender Festival will be held from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 29, at Heisen House—located northeast of Battle Ground on a picturesque parcel of land at 28005 N.E. 172nd Ave.

The festival features arts and crafts vendors, food, live music, lavender lotions and potions, lavender craft demonstrations, tips on cooking with lavender, fresh lavender by the bundle, and of course wine by the glass and by the bottle! Lavender is a natural stress reliever…so put that together with a glass of wine, a sunny summer afternoon, and it’s pretty much instant bliss. On the other hand, if all that lovely lavender and summer sunshine makes you feel energetic, join the games of croquet, horseshoes, and hula hoops, then stick around for a concert featuring local band The Hi Jinx from 6 to 9 p.m.

If you can’t wait until Saturday for a glass of wine, come out to the vineyard from 5 to 9 on Friday, July 28, for live music and dinner. There’s no admission charge, no reservations are needed, and all ages are welcome. For the complete schedule and a list of 11 local vendors to be featured at the event, visit www.heisenhousevineyards.com.

Fused Glass Workshops at Heisen House

What’s more fun than a cool glass of chilled white wine and some hot, hot glass? Not much, if you enjoy creating things from fused glass! If you haven’t tried working with fused glass, but have always wanted to try, there’s no better way to do it than with wine, right? Luckily, Heisen House Vineyards is offering two fused glass workshops at its winery as part of its Summer Craft Sundays. The next workshop is at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 16, and there’s another one at 2 p.m. on Aug. 20. The cost is $45 per person and includes wine and light appetizers. Register for the July 16 workshop online at https://squareup.com/store/fused-glass-made-fun/item/fused-glass-project.

Each participant will spend an enjoyable afternoon learning how to make an open canvas, free-form fused glass project. Each participant gets a five-inch square of glass, fused glass scraps, tools, kiln time, and instructions. While you’re letting your imagination run wild, you can savor a glass (or two) of sustainably grown Heisen House wine and nibble from small plates. Workshops last for two hours at Heisen House, 28005 N.E. 172nd Ave. in Battle Ground.

Barn Bash at Heisen House Vineyards

The farm-style celebration will feature historic displays, tours of the Heisen family homestead, food, live music every hour, and games, as well as local products and goods for sale from crafters, artists, and farmers. Admission is free, although you’re welcome to contribute to the “barn fund” with a donation of $5 per adult and $3 per child between the ages of five and 18. The tasting room will be open with wines for purchase by the glass and by the bottle. To learn more about Heisen House Vineyards, visit www.heisenhousevineyards.com or “like” them on Facebook.

The barn, which is also listed on the Washington State Historic Barn Registry, was likely built sometime between 1866 and 1890, when Alexander and Mary Heisen homesteaded the site. The timber frame barn was built almost entirely by hand using German-style mortice and tenon, peg and dowel, with little more than an axe and an ox. The hand-hewn chop marks are still clearly visible, and the barn, which sits on a foundation of boulders (still plumb 150-some years later!) is one of the oldest barns still standing in Clark County.

On Saturdays and Sundays, the tasting room will be open from noon to 6 p.m. You’ll also want to mark your calendars for Heisen House’s extremely popular Summer Festivals, held on the the last Saturday in June, July, August, and September, featuring wine, live music, food, and lots of arts and crafts vendors.

Heisen House Vineyards 6th Anniversary Celebration

Heisen House Vineyards is celebrating six delicious years with a celebration that includes chocolate cake, an art show, music (as in, vinyl records played on Old School wi-fi), and of plenty of sustainably grown wine from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 28. Heisen House’s tasting rotation will get a bit of a shake-up, featuring older wines as well as new releases.

Heisen House is a popular summer destination, with its summer festivals on the last Saturday of June, July, August and September, plus Friday Music Nights, indoor and outdoor tasting areas, and the beautiful, historic grounds with its old farmhouse and barn, both of which are on the Register of Historic Places. New this year: wine and craft classes (date, time, and cost TBA) as well as multi-course vineyard dinners showcasing the finest local cuisine and Heisen House wines. The venue is also available for weddings and other group events, but they get booked quickly; visit heisenhousevineyards.com for more information.

Wine Month at Heisen House

Did you know that March is Washington Wine Month? So you’d better get out there and celebrate this significant occasion by drinking lots of wine, especially local wine. Heisen House Vineyards in Battle Grand plans to help you in your mission by hosting wine tasting from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 8. (Of course, that’s when they’re always open for wine tasting, but it’s the thought that counts, right?)  And after you’ve visited Heisen House, stop by a few other local wineries in Clark County.

Heisen House is offering a sale on its Barn Owl White in honor of this lovely spring weather. This crisp, light, dry white wine with hints of vanilla, citrus, and peach makes a perfect sunny day sipper. (We can pretend summer is here, even though it’s technically still winter. Calendar, schmalendar.) This weekend, you can get this local delicacy for just $12 per bottle—$10 off the regular price. Happy Washington Wine Month, indeed!
