2016 Gewürztraminer Orange Wine Release                                          
Friday, October 19th, 4-8 p.m.      
Orange wine (or skin contact wine) is made just as a red wine is made. Using a white grape, in this case Gewürztraminer, once the wine is crushed it is then left to ferment on the skins for approximately six weeks. Our process includes bringing the sugar content to zero to produce a dry wine. The time spent on the skins and seeds is what gives the wine the orange color. Festive for this time of year, come try this amazing wine!
LLWC Book Club

We’ll have festive popcorn, chili, and a raffle for anyone who comes in dressed up (wine themed costumes receive two raffle entries). Need not be present to wine, uh, we mean win.
For our north side customers, we’ll also be pouring wine at Ritters Garden & Gift for their bridal event on October 3rd and at their Fall Festival on October 12th.
