2010 Frosty Dog:Freezing resulted in a concentrated, aromatic juice, which when fermented became this sumptuous, complex dessert wine. The floral nose is accentuated by ripe melon, orange blossom and golden raisin aromas. Tasting this balanced wine reveals pear, tangerine, cantaloupe and coriander bolstered by a refreshing green apple acidity and lingering pineapple finish. This delightful wine is a great dessert by itself, and can also be served as an aperitif. Alcohol 11.2% BUY NOW

Recipe for a Holiday Favorite
You can roast chestnuts the traditional way (over a fire), or the 21st century way (in the oven). Here's how:
Thoroughly clean the dirt off of chestnuts with paper towels.
Cut an X into the shell of each chestnut with a thin, sharp knife.
If you're using an open fire, place chestnuts in a large pan with the X-ed sides up and cover it, then roast them over the fire for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the shells begin to open.
If you're using an oven, preheat it to 425° F, arrange the chestnuts on a baking sheet with the X-ed sides up, and bake for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the shells begin to open.
Let the chestnuts cool a little, peel the shells back, and eat. Try adding a bit of salt for extra flavor.
Fire crackling in the big stone fireplace, a room warmed with laughter, the chinking of glasses and the hope of good health and prosperity. Join us to begin your New Year's celebrations. The tasting room will be open from 3-7pm pouring wine, mixing wine cocktails and offering an array of hors d'oeuvres to pair.Reservations and pre-payment is required. $25 per person.
