We now have available two wines we know a lot of people have been waiting for -- our Cabernet Franc Reserve 2010 and Gruener Veltliner 2012 both at $20. 

Farmers Markets are resuming. To see our schedule of when we will appear at which markets, go to our website, click on Farmers Markets in the drop down menu under Main.

Regarding our upcoming events, please reserve by phone or email. In the past we have cancelled events only to have a flood of reservations at the last minute. Then we're unhappy, the caterer is unhappy and you are unhappy.

A one hour yoga session with Robin Ortzman is set for May 19, followed by a wine tasting and light supper. Start time 4:30 $35 Reservations by May 12 essential.

Moonlight Catering BBQ is set for July Fourth, 4-7 pm $20 Reservations requested by June 30.

Stargazers

We just wanted to let you know that our Cabernet Franc Rose has been voted the best 
Rose in the Brandywine to go with a plate of plump shrimp!

"very fresh with crisp strawberry fruit that is light, yet assertive enough to balance the fat shellfish"*

*Brandywine Signature Magazine June 2010.

Our Cabernet Franc Rose is 
PQA (Pennsylvania Quality Assurance Group) approved and captures the fruity aspect of the variety in a new style.

It is an especially good buy at $16 a bottle.

Come on over and try a taste, we're open every Saturday & Sunday from 12-5pm or by appointment (please call 610 486 0422)

Our tastings are only $5 for 5 samples and you can choose from any of our 12 wines, but please be sure not to miss the Cabernet Franc Rose, it's the perfect summer wine.

AND don't forget that if you buy 3 bottles of our wine you will get your $5 tasting fee refunded.
