Limited Release Wine Tasting at Swedish Hill – August 15, 2015

Winemakers love to experiment with new wines and sometimes it’s a new varietal, a new blend, or a new style of a wine we have made in other ways. Each year, we introduce two new wines from the Wine Team’s experiments at this event. Sometimes we also bring back a wine not made in a number of years, sometimes it’s something we have never tried before. Come and be one of the first to experience these new wines! Stay tuned for more details!
