Club members will get the chance to taste and purchase the new 2013 vintages before we release them to the public. We'll be introducing three new Rieslings, two Pinot Gris', a Chardonnay and the return of our Vidal Blanc. We've scored the incredibly delicious talents of Word-of-Mouth Catering in T-Burg and we'll be enjoying live tunes and vineyard hayrides into the night.
Party tickets are limited to 75 attendees.
Club members may purchase (2) tickets at $40 each and guests are welcome at $50 each.
Treat your inner wine-geek and join our winemaker Vinny Aliperti for a focused tasting experience that showcases past and current vintages of Dry Riesling and Cabernet Franc.
Pulled from deep within our wine cellar library, we will dust off and uncork these gems and discuss their differences and similarities due to weather, vineyard location and soils, vinification practices and many other topics. This will be a fun little "time capsule" trip back though several years of pride and joy from our spectacular vineyard site here on Seneca Lake. Maybe you will remember some of them with fondness and nostalgia as we sip and swirl.
Light hors d'oeuvres will be provided for your enjoyment and some selections will be available for purchase - ONE DAY ONLY.
Limited to 24 to keep the event intimate, advance tickets are $25 club members/$35 non
Fun Fact: By the end of today George will have lifted 27,600 pounds of bottled wine from the last two days of bottling. Someone has to put all those bottles into the cases!
