Best Winery and Tasting Room in Vista!
Nestled amongst breweries and distilleries in a Vista business park, Grafted Cellars Winery is a hidden gem of quality wine. A family-owned Urban Winery and Tasting Room, we source our grapes from right here in Vista, to Napa Valley, to Oregon’s Willamette Valley, any American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in between…but quality varietals from our own South Coast AVA are a priority, to showcase our local terroir and potential.
Our fruit is processed and aged at our in-house cellar, right behind our tasting room…we do it all right here. We take care in our selection, in harvesting, in our winemaking techniques, and focus on small-batch and minimal intervention. With over 20 varietals represented (and always more on the way), and with love and appreciation for both new and old world style and expression.
The comfortable, spacious, family and pet-friendly tasting room will be your home away from home in no time. There is plenty of seating and a large area for activities or events. Not to mention a generous wine club for discounts and exclusive gifts.
Kintsugi Workshop March 21, 2024
Thursday, March 21 from 6pm-8pm
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics by hi-lighting the cracks with gold — built on the notion that by embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger more beautiful piece.
Kintsugi translates as “golden joinery,” in Japanese. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to conceal or discard. There should be no attempt to hide or disguise the flaws.
Every break is unique and instead of repairing an item like new, this 500-year-old
technique actually celebrates the breaks as part of the oblects history.
Uplifting and hopeful, Kintsugi is an inspiring metaphor for dealing with the times we feel broken in life. It’s a reminder to find the gold to mend ourselves and appreciate our so called flaws.
This is a fun and inspiring 2.5 hour hands-on workshop where you will learn to repair and embellish two ceramic pieces in a modern version of Kintsugi.
During this workshop, the instructor will also touch upon the origins of Kintsugi and how it relates to the ancient Japanese philosophy or perspective on life known as Wabi-Sabi.
Provided in the workshop:
· Two small ceramic pieces to repair.
· All the material needed to complete your Kintsugi pieces.
· You’ll learn two distinct ways of highlighting the breaks of your ceramic pieces.
· Written instructions and materials supply list.
