Wine enthusiasts and home winemakers will have a chance to score some locally grown grapes this weekend.
Mount Baker Vineyards & Winery will host a U-pick event 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sept. 10-11. Co-owner Patricia Clark-Finley said the business had such a large harvest last year that it decided to set aside some rows so people can pick Siegerrebe and Madeleine Angevine grapes. Both varieties are white wine grapes.
Clark-Finley asks customers to bring their own bucket and clippers and dress for the weather, which is expected to be cloudy with a possibility of rain. Picked grapes will sell for 75 cents a pound and staff will show customers the best way to harvest the grapes.
The winery is at 4298 Mount Baker Highway. For details, call 360-592-2300.
