Wine Club Event
Our first wine club event was a huge success! We have initially opened our wine club at Cassel Vineyards of Hershey up to 50 members and sold out all our memberships. One of the perks of membership is our wine club pick-up events. Our first event, held on Sunday, March 24 from 2-4:00 was a wine tasting presentation of all of our award winning wines from the PA Farm Show, Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and the PA Wine Society’s Wine Excellence Awards.
Using tasting notes from previous competitions, we worked through each of the wines and discovered the visual, aromatic and flavor qualities that make each of our wines special. What was interesting was the continuity in all the tasting notes from all our wines across all the years. It was a fun and educational experience for everyone.
We also sampled some cheeses that we tried to find complimentary flavors for in the award winning wines. It was a lot of fun and I think word has spread. Unfortunately, we would like to get one year of wine club events under our belts before we expand the club to include more members. If you did not get a chance to make it into the club this year, we plan to open the club again in November for next year’s membership. Stay tuned for updates and directions on how you can join if you did not make it. If you would like my tasting notes, from the power point, I will provide a picture of them at the end of this entry.
Thank you to everyone who made this event so much fun. Looking forward to the next pick up event in June.
