Von Stiehl Offers a Vintage Wine Tasting on September 15
We’d love for you to join us on September 15, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm in the bottling room of our production building at 104 Steele Street. You need not attend the wine festival in order to take part in this Vintage Wine Tasting, but as they say, “When in Rome…”
For our Vintage Wine Tasting, we find a few cases of favorite vintages stocked away for safe keeping. We then organize the wine varietals, decide which ones we will part with and add them to the vintage tasting list. This select list is only offered once a year at the Wet Whistle Wine Fest in September for our Vintage Wine Tasting.
Due to these wines being near and dear to us, just our family pulls corks and pours them for guests. We love to see the reactions on tasters’ faces as they first try our 2012 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a bit of an abnormal tasting, set up on planks and barrels in our bottling room. Just the wine is fancy – the rest of it comes down to simple enjoyment of vintages that have enjoyed extra time relaxing within the winery walls.
We ask that you buy a Riedel stemless wine glass & five tasting tickets for $15. After that, we’ll pour samples from the special vintage tasting list. No reservations are needed, but keep in mind that we will run out of certain offerings as the day goes on. It’s both a sad, and a happy time!
Bottles are numbered so you’ll know if someone steals yours!
