Saturday, June 16
Saturday, September 22
10 AM – 3 PM, Rain or shine

Rock houndOur vineyard is situated on a ridge above Half Moon Bay and was the ancient lakebed. Every spring, we cultivate the rows and turn up huge, fossilized limestone plates and smaller rocks encrusted with fossils. We invite you to walk the vineyard and do your own fossil hunt. If you can carry it, you can take it home. Your finds will be analyzed by County collector, Alf Newnham. Alf is a member of various rock and mineral clubs and has led many field trips.
He has an extensive collection of fossils and rocks and will share his knowledge with you.

Children of all ages are welcome. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

During the day there will be a display of rocks and fossils, which have been found along the South Shore. There will also be a rock, fossil and gem market. Plus, at 1 PM, you can attend a demonstration on how to make rock art and statuary, so that you can make your own with rocks you take home. Be sure to bring a bag for your collection. Bring a picnic lunch or purchase lunch from the winery Nibble Menu. Our wines will be available by the glass.
