This past weekend we celebrated our 1st Anniversary at Adirondack Winery, with a weekend of events, prizes, food and most importantly — wine!
First and foremost, Sasha and I would like to thank everyone who came out to see us this weekend, as well as everyone who has visited us over the last year. We had a very successful first year and we are looking forward to another great year with some new wines, new products, lots of fun and our eyes on the future.
On Saturday night, we had a closed door event for our Inner Circle members — it was a great night and we had over 50 members (the limit of our space capacity) attend for a night of free food, drinks and fun. It was really nice to see people come out and celebrate with us. Thanks goes out to all that attended this event and congratulations to all those people who won some great raffle prizes! (We wanted to have pictures to share, but were so busy attending the event, that we completely forgot to take them!)
On Friday we had free cheese and crackers as well as a free white wine tasting. The weather was great and we had a great turn out.
Saturday during the day we had free cheese, chocolates and red wine. The weather wasn’t as good as Friday but we still had a good turn out and we even had a few visits from some very familiar faces.
Sunday was our chocolate and dessert wine pairing day. This was one of my favorites from the weekend. We had a free dessert wine tasting, and lots of chocolate and sweets out to taste with them. I’ll admit I did “try” a few of the chocolates, including truffles we had made with our wine infused in them (cab sav, chardonnay, and ice wine), and they were very enjoyable!
Also, we treated our customers to free samples of a new product we’re carrying – Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream – We’ve got their “A La Port”, “Riesling”, “Raspberry Chardonnay”, and Peach White Zinfandel flavors. We’re going to have to try real hard not to consume all of the stock ourselves. These ice cream’s really taste like wine and have about 5% alcohol in them!
Overall it was a fun weekend and it was great way to start our summer season. We both look forward to another gsuccessful season in Lake George. We can’t think of a better place to enjoy the summer and more importantly a better place to enjoy some great wine.
Until next time have a great week and enjoy the great weather this weekend!
