A Wine for Every Occasion

Excerpt from the Brambleton Community Association July Newsletter
Summertime means there’s always a reason to celebrate. Whether enjoying a perfectly chilled bottle of Sancerre on the deck at home with friends is more your speed, or you prefer to spend the afternoon with 500 new friends tasting whatever is poured for you, there really is a wine for every occasion and every person. With that said, LoCo wineries have a ton to offer this July at both ends of the spectrum. Here’s a few:
Follow the Grape Series: Pruning & Canopy Management at Sunset Hills Vineyards – July 8, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Join in for a behind the scenes experience and “follow the grape” from planting through harvesting. This season, get hands-on experience as they prune the vines. Visit www.sunsethillsvineyard.com for more information.
Of course, you can always just go to taste wine at a winery. After all, that’s why they’re there. But before visiting any winery, ALWAYS call or check their website to see what they’re all about and what restrictions they may have. Some are all about the wine and don’t hold events or allow food. Some don’t allow groups larger than four (yes, four!), while some are more event-focused and cater to large groups. Some can’t (or won’t) accommodate buses or limos. Each winery is different, and they want you to enjoy yourself, so please do your due diligence so that you know what to expect when you arrive.
But once you do arrive at your ideal venue, try some new wines, pick your favorite, share with your favorite friends, and make your occasion special. Cheers!
