Select reservation time at checkout to schedule your tasting.
Summer Rose, dry rosé of Sangiovese- A traditional dry rosé, light, crisp, and very refreshing. This wine featured delicious notes of ripe strawberry and cherry. Cheese Pairing: Bella Vitano Gold. A cow’s milk cheese is made by the Sartori family in Wisconsin in the Italian tradition. Light, creamy, and nutty, it’s a great complement to a fruity summer wine.
Dry Rosé Cider- A hard cider made locally grown apples from Kalamazoo’s own Husted Farms. This cider is produced using a small percentage of Grenache grapes to add color and complexity. This cider is off-dry with a slight apple sweetness and a snappy tart finish. Cheese Pairing: Prairie Breeze Domestic Cheddar: Apples and cheddar cheese are a classic pairing. We’ve taking this approach, but instead of whole apples, we’re doing hard cider! Prairie Breeze is a well aged white cheddar style cheese from the Milton Creamery in Iowa, and is aged for at least 9 month. This cow’s milk cheese has a smooth creaminess, salty crunch, and a touch of caramel-like sweetness on the finish.
Grapefruit-Passion Rosé- A sweet rosé wine flavored with juicy notes of grapefruit and passion-fruit. Cheese Pairing: Mango Ginger Stilton. This sweet and creamy cheese is made with real chunks of mango and spiced with a mild hint of ginger. It’s the perfect dessert cheese!
