BookCliff at Three Leaf Farm

We had a lovely time at the Three Leaf Farm dinner in Lafayette. The farm is a gem tugged away at the South edge of Lafayette, next to 287; but you would never guess as you are charmed by all the farm animals (horses, goats and chicken) and the rows of prospering vegetables. The theme of the dinner was mushrooms to stay with the season. Every course introduced new flavors and showcased the versatility of mushrooms including the dessert with a mushroom meringue and surrounded by mushroom dust. The brisket and the Wellington portabella mushroom was a perfect pairing with the BookCliff Vineyards Cabernet Franc Reserve 2012.

4th of July BBQ

Looking ahead to the 4th of July weekend, do you have all your meals planned? BookCliff Vineyards Winery can provide a few fun suggested libations for your BBQ! Grilled meats always beg for some dark fruity reds with light tannins, such as Cabernet Franc. Spicy BBQ sauce always marries well with sweet style wines, such as Riesling or our Touch of Red Rose. What will you be having at your cookout this weekend?

Two wines from BookCliff Vineyards received gold medals at the 2015 Governor's Cup Competition, the 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve (gold) and the 2014 Viognier (double gold). Both wines were selected for the Governor's Cup case. The second year in a row two wines or more from BookCliff Vineyards were selected for the Governor's Cup case representing the excellence in Colorado wines.
