Pinnacle Ridge announces Blues in the Barn lineup and two new wine releases
We have recently released new vintages on some of our favorite wines. We are now pouring the crisp and refreshing 2013 Traminette as well as the 2013 Cayuga, always perfect for summertime sipping.
2013 Pinnacle Ridge Traminette:
This Gewürztraminer hybrid is a Silver Medal Winner at the Los Angelas International Wine Competition. This rather large wine begins with a big mouth feel, intense aromas of flowers and tropical fruits. This off-dry wine possesses hints of lychee and al balanced acidity that compliments the 1.3% residual sugar. This food-friendly wine pairs especially well with spicy foods like Indian and Thai cuisines.
2013 Pinnacle Ridge Cayuga:
The always popular summertime sipping wine in the signature blue bottle! This wine displays aromas of apples and honey on the nose that are followed by some wonderful floral flavors. This semi-sweet treat is the perfect compliment to summertime classics like hot dogs and baked beans or pork BBQ.
Open House Concert Series:
This month we will feature two bands here in the Barn for the first time, We are very excited to announce that The Wallace Brothers Band will be here on Saturday, August 9 from 2-5 pm. Chef Adam Gluskin will also provide some carne asada tacos for your enjoyment.
On Saturday, August 23 we will host The Big and Bad Rockabilly Cats from 2-5 pm in the barn. Come out and enjoy a great show and some of Chef Adam Gluskin's always-popular chicken kabobs with a cayenne yogurt sauce.
