Special Event

For those of you that have followed my articles for the past six years you may already know that I love dry red wine and anything chocolate! So anytime I get the opportunity to enjoy the two I jump on it!

But this time I am going to share my excitement with you and invite you to the winery to join me for a dessert and wine pairing on Saturday, December 7th from 7:30 – 9:30pm. We are working with Presti’s Bakery located in Little Italy to serve a few of their amazing desserts with a selection of our wines.

We have carefully researched (ate way too many of their treats) and have finally selected this amazing pairing: Cassata Cake and Riesling, Tiramisu and Pirate Syrah, Blueberry Cheesecake and Blue Spark and we’ll finish the night with a selection of Canolis and Illumination. Granted, the menu may change if I keep sampling but I promise this is one event you will not be disappointed in!

Plus, sit back for the fantastic sounds of Denny & McKay at 7:30! This great duo will be playing your favorite hits from the Beatles, Chicago, Elton John and maybe even a few holiday tunes! Tickets for the dessert pairing are only $11.99 person (not including tax or gratuity). Reservations and pre-payment is required! Call the winery today to book your reservation – 330.527.4118.

Tickets are limited so don’t miss out on this awesome experience. We will be open to the public so even if you’re not in the mood for dessert – come on out for a great night of live music and wine!
