Country Cookout - Saturday, July 10, 2010

The evening was splendid. After a beautiful sunset faded eastward, stars pinned a black velvet sky above our dinner guests. The air was warm and dry, providing the perfect place-setting for outdoor dining and dancing. The band played late into the evening and kept the event hopping. Some guests were seen dancing on the barrels placed around the dancefloor. Chilled wine was served after dinner, which no doubt encouraged guests to dance "like spirits of the night (all night)."

Fiesta Released

Fiesta was bottled and released on May 27, 2010. 428 cases were bottled. Fiesta is our sweet blush wine expressing the familiar and refreshing aroma and taste of Concord grape. New release was just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, and our customers were eager to find it on our tasting counter.

Wine is best experienced using all the senses. Of course, taste and smell are primary. However, sight is often the 1st introduction to a wine, and should also be enjoyed and not overlooked. The photograph shows the beautiful vibrant color and translucency of Fiesta in the glow of dawn's early light (a reference to Memorial Day). Next to the Fiesta are Blenko water carafes, available in our gift shop.
