The Merry Month of May: Wine & Roses at The Schoolhouse
May is the month for “Days of Wine and Roses” at Burrell School Vineyards: it’s one of our favorite months, because the roses are brimming over with color and perfume, turning this place into a floral paradise. You’re invited to stroll in our gorgeous gazebo garden where Anne grows an astounding number of heritage roses, all fragrant and vibrant. There is nothing like May at Burrell School – the perfect time for a lazy picnic with a bottle of Burrell School wine. You’re in luck, because Winemaker Dave is releasing 5 new wines this month, including one brand new varietal, for your tasting pleasure.
