Welcome to 2015, a brand new year! Hope you all had great holidays, and that Burrell School wines helped make them even more special! This 2005 Estate Reserve Principal’s Choice Pinot Noir is drinking beautifullly – uncork some if you’ve got any in your stash. At ten years old, it’s brilliant!
We wish you all a very happy, healthy, productive New Year: one in which you expand your horizons, explore new roads and taste new and delicious wines! We have some in store for you and we can’t wait to roll them out.
Our New Year’s resolution is to continue to grow and ripen our Estate grapes to perfection, the first step in making great wine. And we start with winter pruning, now underway.
Pruning is an art, as a path is set for this year’s crop, as well as guiding the vines for vintage 2016 and beyond. Kudos to Mark and the crew for their pruning skills!
Winter Passport Day, January 17th—Celebrate the farmers, vintners and families that are the roots of our mountains. Purchase a Passport here at Burrell School and enjoy a unique wine experience at each participating winery. We’ll have live music, tasty treats from Love Morsels and special Passport wine pricing. www.scmwa.com
Winter Wine Club Party, January 31st and February 1st—Chef Desiree will delight us with fabulous food nibbles to pair with the February Sippers’ Club wines. Consider joining our Wine Sippers Club for quarterly club wines. Great pricing on great wines and exclusive club-only events.
Another milestone here on the Summit—Burrell School will turn 125 years young on July 4, 2015. We’re planning a celebration and will have details as we approach summer.
Meanwhile, make one of your New Years Resolutions a pledge to get outdoors more and explore this beautiful place we call home. The mountains are calling! Bring a picnic to Burrell School and enjoy this special time of year while the vines enjoy winter slumber.
