Enjoy a complimentary tasting this weekend only in the Tasting Room at King Family Vineyards. Print the image below and redeem it for your tasting. Bring a picnic or choose from our selection of bread, cheeses, salami and more. Pick a spot in front of the fireplace or enjoy the unique experience of sitting among next year’s wine in the Barrel Room.

Update – Not wanting to leave out Blue Mountain Brewery, I just received this email (I like the “Hoppy” Holidays”) –

Hoppy Holidays everyone!

A few Blue Mountain Brewery news bits as we head into the final stretch of ’08:

First and very exciting, our new experimental beer is hitting the taps this Monday (yup, we’ll be open Monday 12/22 and Monday 12/29). We’ve given up naming this behemoth and are simply calling it by its descriptor–Double Barrel-Aged Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Imperial Stout. In a nutshell it’s Dark Hollow post-bourbon barrels aged in Pollack Vineyards Pinot Noir barrels with 20#s of cherries and 7#s of Mexican Cocoa nibs per barrel (nibs are the fermented, roasted cacao bean that is used to make chocolate). It’s liquid happiness, and as it tastes like drinking a Godiva bar, this heady brew is perfect for the season. To take it a step further, we’re serving it from the nitrogen tap!

And we’re still selling 750s of Dark Hollow batch #4, so come one by this weekend for a bottle and all your last-minute shopping swag (gift cards, hats, Ts, growlers, cases, kegs, etc.)
