Sorry it’s been so darn long since my last post, I have just been so busy lately and just a bit worn out from this summer and fall; which by the way, Thanks so much to all of you for making it another great season for us!

Well, onto the good stuff! We have some brand new wines coming out that we’ve been working on for some time now. I think they will add something new and different to our wine list and we hope you will give them a try.
First off is our newest fruity wine: Serene White, which is a Kiwi Melon Pinot Grigio. I think everyone is going to really love this wine, especially all the fans of our Strawsling.
Here are the tasting notes for this wine: “This light bodied white wine captures the mouth watering flavors of freshly cut honeydew melon and juicy watermelon. Perfectly balanced with tones of tart kiwi fruit, this easy drinking wine boasts a deliciously fresh fruity finish. Pairing suggestions fish or chicken,
mild cheeses, creamy desserts and ice cream.”

Our second new wine is perfect for the chilly Holiday Season — “Afterglow Red”, which is a Mulled Wine! Some of you may have sampled mulled wine from us last year, which was made using our regular wines with a mulled wine spice packet in a crock pot, which filled the winery with irresistible smells. Our customers enjoyed that wine so much, that we made one right in the bottle for this year that you can just open, warm and pour! This is a limited release wine, however, so when it sells out, we won’t make any more of it until next year. I of course, get to taste the wines early, and I can tell you I already really love it, so just to let everyone know I have already reserved two bottle for myself! (winemaker’s luxury ) )
Here are the tasting notes for Afterglow Red: “Enjoy the inviting aromas and comforting taste of our warm, spiced mulled wine on a cold day. This rich, sweet wine has delightful notes of cinnamon, cloves, allspice and orange peel. Best warmed on a stove over medium-low heat until steaming, this wine should be served hot alongside dried fruits, nuts, spiced breads or cookies. Take it up a notch by dropping in a few raisins and almonds, or give it more pizzazz with a splash of your favorite Port, Amaretto, Schnapps, or liqueur.” Mmmmmm…..:)
Later on, we’ll tell you more about some more limited release wines coming out between winter and spring…Raspberry Merlot…Raspberry White Zinfandel…Port…Cabernet Sauvignon… so keep your eye out!
Last, the Holidays are approaching so quickly I can’t believe it! Remember us when you think about what to get people for gifts for Christmas or as your plan your holiday parties….

I hope everyone has a great week and hopefully I will get more consistent with my posts now….
