Our addition to the original building is now complete and ready for use. We added a production and storage facility to our winery because things were growing too fast and we were running out of room. We have already begun several batches of new wine so stop out this Saturday and take a peek inside to see our new expansion. We are very excited and hope you like the improvements.
To celebrate the new building and the beginning of the Fall Harvest 2016, we are also releasing two new vintages for everyone to try. The first is our estate grown 2015 Chardonnay finished for 3 months in French Oak. The new Chardonnay is a bit fuller and richer in taste with hints of vanilla and caramel and a pleasant sweet note in its otherwise dry profile. We are really enjoying it on these hot Summer evenings and now that the Winners Circle White is officially sold out this is my new favorite white wine.
The second new release is our Royale Ruby Port. This beautiful port is similar to our Chocolate Ruby Royale Port without the chocolate. It has a beautiful taste of fresh berries and a nice finish with very little hint of its 18% ABV. We think the two ports will make a beautiful holiday gift for someone who deserves a little something special this year. Ask us for a gift box ifyou plan to pass our ports on to a friend.
We hope you can come out and join us this weekend. Friday night our concert with Modern Blue (Jazz) will provide you with the last chance to enjoy Blazing Swine BBQ for this year. Saturday, we celebrate with Matt Wenger as he makes his final appearance of the season at Cassel Vineyards from 4-6:00. It's going to be an eventful holiday season so we hope you can make it out to join us this weekend.
