The Glass is Half Full!

Good Morning:                            Thursday 4/28/16

   Do you ever need a good laugh?  Last Sunday afternoon at the winery, traffic was slow and I thought it'd be a good time to do a little filming to promote our Mother's Day Event.  It started more serious and ended with belly laughing.  Then this morning I realized that the six videos actually have wine pairing capability.  Follow the sequence below, know that no phone apps were used, this is all unmodified on the fly filming, I like to call it red neck filming.

1. The first video pairs with our Frontenac wine called "Rona."  A dry red wine that pairs with spicy foods you savor. 

2. This video pairs with "What the Foch", between lighter whites and heavier reds.Becky only agreed to sing as a duo.

3. For this video, Tom refused to sing, so I said no problem.  I can sing for you.  The wine pairing is Schnickelfritz, meaning rascal or trouble maker.

4. After this things got wild, Dana then videoed.  The wine paring, Nordsüss. Made to pair with dark chocolate, Fruit forward tones are what you get.

5. This next video has to be paired with "Gemütlichkeit", meaning Good Times in German.  Matt did a wonderful job.

6. Lastly is my wife, Mary's video.  I pair her with our Ruby Port called "Papo".  a very stiff drink, Great with dark chocolate.

Don't miss our Mother's Day Buffet plus more!


     Now for the winner of last week's trivia question.  Does anyone known what these lawn circles are from?  

     The correct answer is "Fairy Rings". the rings are caused by mushrooms that grow in circles. The mushrooms "fix" nitrogen the greens up the grass - same as using lawn fertilizer, only in circles.   And the winner of a free bottle of Millner Heritage wine is Al Gilmer.  Congratulations!

    As always, Thank you for our time and have a wonderful week.
