New Wines and Wines on the Horizon…

NEW RELEASES –

  • 2015 Chardonnay: Barrel aged for 2 years, this semi-oaked Chardonnay has finally arrived! As 2015 was a tough year for Chardonnay, we’ve only made 24 cases of this scrumptious wine.
  • Sangiovese: Now available to our Wine Club Members and available to the public April 20th, this Sangiovese is smooth and food-friendly with soft spice notes on the back of the palate.

ON THE HORIZON –

  • Midnight Moonlight, a sweet Viogner/Riesling blend is coming soon in May!

 

 

Eggs and Wine?

Well, we don’t usually pair eggs with wine, but we do have FARM FRESH EGGS for sale* from our cage free hens that are pampered (they live in a chicken palace and have a nice outdoor run) on the winery property.

$3.50 a dozen – eggs come in a variety of colors (white, beige, brown, dark brown, and the occasional blue/green!).  

So when you think “BUY LOCAL”, come to us for wine and eggs!

*During the winter months our hens lay less eggs as the days get shorter and more of their energy goes to keeping themselves warm! If you are interested in our farm fresh eggs please call ahead to see if we have any available.
