Join us in May as we celebrate wine and roses all month long. Anne’s heritage rose garden is bursting with fragrant blossoms in a myriad of colors, and the vines will be fully in bloom. The gazebo garden will be open on weekends throughout the merry month of May. Don’t miss this opportunity to stop and smell the roses, and the fragrant grape blossoms, too!
While you’re at the winery, you’ll notice a lot going on as the extensive interior schoolhouse restoration project continues. It’s a wonderful tribute to the men and women who built this place and to all who taught and learned in this irreplaceable piece of history. As stewards of this special property, we are so proud to be restoring the schoolhouse to some of its former glory!
Club Members! It’s that time again! You and a friend are invited to attend one of our Spring Sipping Sessions, this Saturday & Sunday, April 30th & May 1st, between 1 – 5pm in the gazebo garden. Come enjoy the wines in the May Sippers Club package paired with a tasty appetizer menu, as well as music.
The wines of the May Sipper’s Club package are:
2013 Principal’s Choice Pinot Noir
2014 Old School Cabernet
2013 Dean’s List Cabernet Sauvignon
Mid-month brings “A Taste of the Mountains,” an expanded take on Pinot Paradise, as we celebrate the noble Pinot Noir grape and its sister, Chardonnay, at 30 local wineries.
And we’ll close out May with our bi-annual Cellar Alumni Sale over Memorial Day weekend, an exclusive library tasting and sale for our Sippers Club members. Vive La Bibliothèque!
Whatever you do, don’t forgot to stop and smell the roses, and remember your Mom on Mother’s Day!
