Virtual Plein Air Outing: Captain Vineyards in Moraga

It’s been a heck of a ride for many months, but things finally appear to be slowing down a bit so we can get back to doing what we love!

Our virtual plein air outing this month takes us to the rolling hills of Moraga and the beautiful estate at Captain Vineyards, a family-owned winery that offers tastings, tours, events and classes. Captain Vineyards is the first green and sustainable winery in Contra Costa County. All of their handcrafted wines are made in Moraga using the grapes they have grown on their estate.

We've been trying to attend one of their tours and tastings, but something always happened... pandemic shut down, fire, rain and then shut down again! We are hoping to attend one of their tours/wine tastings when they re-open later this year.

Our Plein Air committee met and has decided to begin our in-person outings in April. Some of us will have had both doses of vaccine by then!

Looking forward to seeing your vineyard masterpieces, as well as your smiling eyes above your masks in April! May you and yours continue to stay safe and be well.
