Thomas Jefferson was our third president and a real wine lover. As the Secretary of State to George Washington, Jefferson was the wine expert who ensured that the White House was well stocked with high quality wines. His favorite wines were blends from the Bordeaux region of France. Come in President’s Weekend and have a complementary tasting of our Bordeaux style wine, Trio. A flavorful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, Trio was recently awarded a gold medal by the Beverage Testing Institute. In their annual Northeastern Roundup of Regional Wines Trio earned a 91 point score and was named “Best Northeastern Bordeaux Style Blend”. Sharrott Winery Chambourcin was also awarded a gold medal while Barrel Reserve Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon each took silver medals. Visit us this weekend and taste them as part of our normal $5 tasting. Our winemaker will be doing tours at 12:30, 2:30 and 4:00, too!
