Our winery is now 35 years old, but our annual picnic by the pond is actually a tradition that began in the mid 1970s. We are happy to welcome back Gale Wyn Farms from Canandaigua to serve up their mouthwatering Pig Roast to cap off a day of wine and fun. All current members of the McGregor Vineyard Clan Club are invited to attend and may also bring guests. Reservations are $30 per member and $40 per guest. Call (800) 272-0192 or reply to this message by August 7th to let us know you'll be joining the fun. Lifetime Clan Club member Walt Atkison from North Carolina performs throughout the afternoon. Walt plays some of the finest guitar and harmonica you'll ever enjoy and we’re excited to have him back again. Additional picnic traditions include Blind Wine Tastings, a Live Auction of older wine vintages from our wine library, Silent Auctions, Raffles, Picnic-only wine specials on numerous wines and lots of merriment! What Else Should I Know? We make just one request to you: Prepare a hors d’ouvres to share with the crowd. Be creative (use some McGregor wine!) and please keep in mind that we won’t have the ability to heat or chill what you bring. Don't worry about dessert.. we've got it covered! We do provide chairs under the tents but we strongly suggest you bring a comfortable lawn chair. The picnic is rain or shine… Regardless of the weather, the Clan Club Picnic is always one of the very most memorable days of summer.
