Life at Hiyu is expressed by the following equation:
Culture(1) Soil life + Plants + Animals + People = Culture(2) People experiencing Food and Wine
We live on a farm with plants, animals and all the beneficial creatures that inhabit the soil. From this culture, supported by a network of local growers, we cook food and make wine. We’ve built a place where you can gather at the table and experience life on our farm.

Gatherings and Dinners
Several times a month we host a collaboative dinner party or informal gathering. The gatherings held the first Saturday of every month and are built around a rustic one plate meal and the release of new wines while the collaborative dinners tend to be more elaborate in their presentation. These events are intended to be a way for friends of the farm to come together.
Hiyu Open House $15/person
Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM
We’re excited to invite you to our first annual open house. This event is a chance to taste an unprecedented number of wines from Hiyu, Smockshop Band, Tzum and Floréal Cider. We’ll be opening and selling every wine we have stock of, including a limited number of rare magnums and three-liter bottles. We'll gather around wine barrels stationed around the tasting room and taste in a relaxed and convivial environment. Jason Barwikowski will provide simple snacks from the Farm Kitchen. There will be 20 reservations available every 30 minutes.
Please note this event is FREE for Understory Subscribers. We ask subscribers to contact us directly at email@example.com to set a time and book your complimentary tickets.
A Burgundian Fete $50/person
Saturday, December 14th, 2019 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Our approach to winemaking is profoundly affected by medieval tapestries depicting the early winemaking practices of the monks of Burgundy. We work entirely with whole clusters, tread conical wood fermenters by foot, press in old fshioned basket presses and move the wine around in 5 gallon buckets. As harvest winds down and winter sets in we develop a deep craving for the perfumed wines and rustic, country cuisine of this historic land. There is a rich festive culture of parties and gatherings that has accrued around this food and wine over the ages and we’re excited to share our version of this experience with you.
A Winter Solstice Dinner $250/person
Saturday, December 21st, 2019 7PM
Every year around this time we host a single dinner more luxurious than what one might normally expect on a farm. We’ll harness the evocative power of winter truffles, Idaho Sturgeon Caviar, Chicories (the transcendent vegetables of winter) and Muscovy Duck that we raise on the farm to deliver a six course menu capable of connecting with the most transcendent qualities of our wines. This year's dinner falls on the winter solstice and presents a very special opportunity to connect with our land on one of the most magical nights of the year.
