Mother’s Day Picnic in the Vineyard

Treat your mom to a Mother’s Day picnic at the vineyard! Spend the day with Mom surrounded by the quaint elegance of James Charles Winery.

There are three options for your picnic:
Tarragon Chicken Salad Sandwich with pecans, grapes, celery, and Hellmans with baby greens on croissant.
Ham with Brie cheese, Granny Smith apples, baby lettuce mix and Dijon mustard on hearty grain bread.
Baby spinach with hummus, roasted red peppers, shaved carrots, sliced tomato, feta cheese, balsamic glaze and olive oil

Each wine-country Mother’s Day picnic will include a side salad of baby lettuce topped with tomato, cucumber, Kalamata olives, feta cheese and red-wine
vinaigrette. It even includes a dessert: rockslide brownie bar topped with caramel, toasted pecans, brownie chunks and caramel ganache.

So leave the planning for your Mother’s Day outing to us, and we’ll have your picnic ready for you when you arrive. Due to the popularity of our Mother’s Day events, lawn chairs & blankets are recommended.)

Admission Fee: $25.00
