Open House Brought Out the Big Guns..Er, Bottles
This past Saturday, Terra Blanca opened its doors for one of the most-anticipated events of the year: the Holiday Open House!
For years, the Open House has been a way Owners Keith and ReNae Pilgrim say thanks to all of you who have supported Terra Blanca. This year was no different, as both Keith and ReNae were in Tasting Room chatting with guests and pouring wines. Winemaker Keith even pulled out an unlabeled bottle (called a “shiner”) as the day’s mystery wine.
No stops were left un-pulled this year. Tasting Room Manager Daryl Baker and Accountant Debbie Smathers donned their chef hats to bring a couple tasty desserts to pair with the newly released 2006 Signature Series Cabernet Forte. The three scrumptious minis were a huge hit, and two of the recipes are available at the Tasting Room bar. Feeling a bit adventurous? Give the Chocolate Forte Truffles a try!
Continuing a tradition, Terra Blanca dug through the cellar and brought out a slew of large format bottles. Everything from magnums (1.5L bottles) of ONYX to Jereboams (3L bottles) of Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon were up for sale. All magnums were $50 and all Jereboams were $100, regardless of vintage and varietal. The good news is that we don't want to carry them back downstairs, and there are still plenty to pick from! If there's a wine lover on your Christmas list, drop on by the Tasting Room and browse these Libraried wines. Need help picking a vintage? Ask a Wine Educator for help!
Veni, Vidi, Vinum!
