Friends, so many of you love our Daffodil White. The Illinois State Fair Wine Competition judges agree with you! Daffodil White has receive another Double Gold medal! Thank you all for your support! and Cheers! Every Day is a Celebration!
Wine in Bloom Open House Celebration is this Saturday! We have some fun things in store for you including a new flavor. At our Open House in February, I had many of you sample our port style wine that was aging in the barrels. It is fantastic! Smooth and sweet like the Velvet Hour you are used to with a touch of smoke.
Come join the Celebration of Spring with us this weekend!
P.S. The oak-aged Velvet Hour will only be available to sample this weekend as part of our regular tasting sheet. After Memorial day, it will only be available to sample as a special flight.
What a way to Celebrate Mom! For the next two weeks, we will ship 6 bottles or more to your Illinois address for only $5! Treat Yourself, Treat Mom. Give us a call to order – 815-291-6700
Enjoy Your Easter and Celebrate Spring!
What wine to have with Easter dinner? Not sure what I will pick. The weather will be so nice, I might pop open a St. Pepin. But, a award-winning Reserve may get opened as well to match with the grilled pork loin.
We will be closed Easter Sunday so that we all may celebrate with our families. Until then, you can hunt for your Easter egg!
Pruning is done! The vines look great. They appear to have weathered the winter very well. Time will tell though.
Thank you to all who came out to celebrate with us! It was great to see old friends and make new ones!
Seems like an obvious question. I did some research and found some interesting studies. Besides savings on shipping and all that’s involved there, different studies show that local business put over HALF of there sales $’s back into the local economy. Big stores spend less than 25 to 30% with the local economy.
Let’s toast small, local businesses!
To all who came out to our 10th Annual Cabin Fever Open House! It was great to see so many friends and new as well! The Velvet Hour aged in the barrel was a HUGE hit! It will be available by Memorial Day weekend. Maybe sooner.
Last night, my husband grilled some steaks with garlic/coffee rub on them. As always, they were superb! What made it extraordinary was the 2005 Vintage of Massbach Reserve I pulled out of the basement to go with supper. Spicy with dark fruit notes- lovely. An oak-aged wine that was made early on in my winemaking career.
What’s really exciting is… What is the 2012 Reserve going to be like in 2020?!?!
I’ll make a date with it! WooHoo!
Retro pricing! When I opened the doors 10 years ago, there were 4 wines: Apple, Traumen, Sunrise Red and St. Pepin. Those wines will have the original prices on them for the weekend. WooHoo!
For 10 years, we have been growing and making wine. I would like to thank you for your support. I have enjoyed seeing so many people enjoy our wines but more than that – I have enjoyed seeing people enjoy a very important part of life – each other!
So, I would like to invite you to celebrate with us on the 15th. We will have some of my favorites things: Wine, Music and Food!
Mike Kelly will be setting the mood with great music while you enjoy a glass of Hot Red Storm in our new 10th Anniversary glass. But, don’t forget to pick up a few bottles of commemorative St. Pepin bottles all dressed up for the occasion.
We look forward to seeing you and look forward to many more “Vintage” years!
