On April 16 and 17, 2010, Adirondack Winery celebrated its Second Anniversary! We’re on to our third summer season in Lake George!
The last two years have gone better than we expected. Every day, new faces come into the winery, while at the same time, we are fortunate to keep so many of our customers coming back over and over again, even from far distances! We never thought our wine list would be more than 40 wines long, either!
To celebrate our second anniversary, we held two exclusive night events for our Inner Circle members on Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17, 2010. Our store capacity is pretty small, so both events sold out and we are happy to report that we had nearly 100% attendance!
Attendees were treated to quite a delicious hand-prepared menu to pair with our wines…incorporating the Stonewall Kitchen foods and Grafton Village Cheddar Cheeses that we sell. The menu included Bourbon Molasses Crab Cakes, Maple Chipotle Chicken Chili, Bruschetta, Garlic Cheddar Bread, Gewurztraminer Cheddar Fondue, Garlic Onion Meatballs, and scrumptious desserts including decadent brownies that should be illegal, cheesecake with blueberry and raspberry jam, cranberry cheddar cheese bread, and lots of hand-made chocolate. Oh and I forgot to mention Wine Ice Cream! If you’d like a glimpse at these delicious recipes, go here.
Aside from great food, attendees enjoyed the debut of a couple new wines, two full wine tasting sessions, a great music playlist, meeting new friends, and more! We played the “guess that wine game”…which I greatly commend the few that guessed correctly as its even difficult for us with the length of our wine list!
Last, throughout both nights we gave away several prizes. There are 6 people out there that can say they were fortunate enough to win an Adirondack Winery wine club members, a case of wine and $50 gift certificates! We also gave away some wine racks, t-shirts, and wine candles.
Aside from this exclusive event, we also held 3 days of free wine tasting events during the day at the winery. It was great!
So, straight from Mike & Sasha, we really enjoyed visiting with all of you during our Anniversary weekend and couldn’t be more pleased to hear that you enjoyed the wine, food and had a great time. We’ll have to figure out some way to expand the event next year!
If you attended our Anniversary events and have some feedback to share, we’d love to hear it here….
