Grab your Snowshoes – or rent a pair for the day – then come enjoy the great wine and beer that Old Mission Peninsula has to offer!  Every Sunday, starting December 29th through March 8th, spend your Sunday afternoons on an Old Mission Snowshoe Wine & Brew outing.

Park at Jolly Pumpkin to board the TC Brew Bus and start your trek! The TC Brew Bus will transport you to Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery. From there you will follow a flagged snowshoe trail across Old Mission Peninsula to Bowers Harbor Vineyards, then snowshoe back to where you parked at Jolly Pumpkin. These tours will run every Sunday, snow or no snow!  You can still enjoy the path without snowshoes if there isn’t enough snow.

Tickets are $28 per person and include:
– Parking and shuttle service from Jolly Pumpkin to Brys Estate.
– 5 samples of wine at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery! If you decide to linger and sip in the breathtaking views, enjoy $5 glass of wine specials. 10% off wine purchases, and they will deliver your purchases to Jolly Pumpkin.
– 5 samples of wine and/or hard cider at Bowers Harbor Vineyards! Huddle around the outdoor fire pit and take advantage of $5 glasses of wine or pints of hard cider. 10% off wine and hard cider purchases, and they will deliver your purchases to Jolly Pumpkin.
– 5 samples of beer or spirits at the Mission Table tasting room in front of Jolly Pumpkin! 10% off Jolly Pumpkin or North Peak beers and Civilized or Old Mission spirits to take home.
