The Wine Club Pigged Out This Summer!

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here

The 2017 Wine Club “Pig Out” celebration, hosting nearly 100 people from the Wine Club, was another extraordinary day!  A true InVINtions’ tradition, one of the Owners’ husbands, John Tipton—grilled-up his famous BBQ pork ribs—complete with sides and desserts whipped-up by other winery Co-Workers! Aaron’s Chicken Salad, Ben’s Bacon & Blue Cheese Coleslaw, Tarina’s German Potato Salad, Nancy’s Cornbread and “Big Red’s Beans” were all enjoyed by the Club Members!

The broken record continues as we announce that this year is, once again, better than last.  The winery’s success is due, in large part, to our Barrel Owners and  Wine Club members, and their friendship and support.  Winery owners and co-workers enjoyed spending a July Saturday with over 100 of their best customers and guests, and celebrating summer together at the winery.  Grand Vin Club Members who have become members of the Barrel Owner’s Club are also anxiously awaiting the arrival of their  2017 personalized barrels from France!

All of us at InVINtions want to, again, send a huge thank you to each and every one of our Wine Club Members who made the day a huge success—after all—there would be no Wine Club (and no party) without each one of our members!

Stay tuned for the next all Wine Club event, which is a BONUS PARTY, just for 2017!  We will be stomping grapes with our Club Members in the month of September!

“Cooking with Wines” Series – Mint Juleps

Visit Us on the Web – Click Here

The Kentucky Derby and Mint Juleps go together year after year.  Spring is arriving, and we are all anxious to find refreshments that go perfectly with the warmer weather.  As fellow wine drinkers, we are always looking for a way to enjoy wine with a little twist of uniqueness.  CA Sunshine once published a great idea in Food.com.  Take a look, and if it sounds good, give it a try.

Wine Mint Julep

Ingredients:
1 cup orange juice
2 cups strawberry lemonade
12 fresh mint sprigs
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 pint red wine, such as a dry rose or 1 pint Chianti wine

Directions:
1.  Add mint springs to boiling water and let stand five minutes. Strain and add to fruit juices. Cool.
2.  Just before serving, add red wine to mint/fruit juice mixture. Pour into glasses filled with ice.
3.  You may want to adjust the wine to mint/fruit juice to your tastes.

Servings:  4-6
