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?

Gold for BookCliff Vineyards

For the second year in a row BookCliff Vineyards wines were awarded gold medals at the annual Governor's Cup competition.

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.
The plan is to offer the Governor's Cup case at select wine stores for purchase.
This year there will be a celebration at the History Colorado Center in Denver on August 1st, 2015 and the public is invited. This is a great opportunity to taste the wines and chat with the winemakers who will be in attendance.

Merlot in Bloom at BookCliff Vineyards

Most people are not aware that grapes bloom, let alone what they look like. It is a rare sight, as just for one week in late spring the tip of the grape clusters burst into tiny yellow flowers emanating a sweet smell. This year is especially magnificent as the cluster in particular of the Merlot grapes are almost twice the size of usual. I was fortunate to visit the vineyard in Palisade this week and snapped a picture. Enjoy!

Radish Fest at Longmont Farmers Market and BookCliff Vineyards

BookCliff Vineyards is participating in the Radish Fest at the Longmont Farmers Market. Yes, radish and wine pairing. With some research, both personal taste test and Internet search the conclusion is that you want to serve a white wine, slightly sweet with your radish dish. I recommend to adjust the sweetness level depending how spicy the radish is. Some radishes can be really spicy, especially if you have stored it for a week in your fridge. The spicier the radish the sweeter you want to go with your wine. Friday's Folly White is a good start for less spicy and Riesling for a spicy radish. Enjoy!!
Check out flatbread with radishes and goat cheese pairings.
