It is time to warm up the Spiced Apple wine and enjoy the magic of fall. The leaves are changing, the air is getting cooler, days are shorter and the end of grape harvest is near.
This 2017 vintage has been quite a surprise. Just when we thought the grapes couldn't handle any more rain, the weather pattern shifted and brought us sunny, warm days and a dry streak for the second half of our season. The sugar levels in the fruit skyrocketed almost overnight and flavors quickly intensified. The red grape varieties will benefit most from this beautiful start to fall and you can start getting excited for some amazing red wines coming from the 2017 vintage.
Have you ever tried our fresh pressed grape juice? We have 1/2 gallons and gallons of Niagara juice available at all of our locations. Within the next couple weeks we will also have Concord. The fresh juice should be consumed within 2 weeks of purchase or it can be frozen for use at a later date. This juice is also suitable to make jelly or your own wine. Please check our Facebook page for juice status as supplies are limited.
We hope to see you at Clover Hill during the month of October. If you need an excuse to visit us, keep reading below for all of our upcoming events!
For the month of October, Vidal Verde & Chambourcin Frizzante are discounted in a Clover Hill gift box at all Clover Hill locations.
Clover Hill has given a modern twist to a traditional Portuguese wine: Vinho Verde, which literally means 'green wine'. Vinho Verde can be produced from either white or red grapes, but this style wine will always be youthful or green and have a touch of effervescence. Both of these dry wines are perfect for pairing with seafood dishes.
All of us on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail like to describe the Chambourcin grape as “The Grape of The Lehigh Valley”. Chambourcin is a versatile grape in which we can produce a dry oak aged Chambourcin and an unoaked Chambourcin named Turtle Rock Red. To help us celebrate Chambourcin Weekend, we will offer a free sampling of our Turtle Rock Red paired with Wensleydale cheese with cranberries. Cheers to Chambourcin!
Join us at the Winery in Breinigsville for a special Halloween celebration. Come in costume and we will have a special gift for you. We will also have a 'Hallowine Sangria' available by the glass, a spooky photo booth and snacks for purchase.
This is your chance to stock up on Clover Hill wines before the holidays. Simply select any 6 or more of your favorite Clover Hill wines and pay only $1 more per bottle to ship. Orders can be placed online at cloverhillwinery.com or in any of our retail stores. Cheers!
