This Fall at Quails’ Gate
After a dreary September, we were all very excited when October arrived with warmer days and beautiful sunshine. Our viticulture and winemaking teams were particularly excited as this was the weather we’d been waiting for to ripen the remaining grapes.
As of October 29, the 2018 harvest has officially come to an end at Quails’ Gate and we are all very excited about the quality of the 2018 vintage. Next week, we will be bottling the first wine from 2018 with our Cailleteau Gamay Nouveau and we hope you will join us for the release party mid-November (details below). In addition to the Cailleteau release, we are excited about all of the wonderful events and promotions that come with the transition into fall and winter. We’d love to welcome you and your guests at the winery to help you pair your perfect moments.
CAILLETEAU GAMAY NOUVEAU RELEASE PARTY
In the tradition of Beaujolais Nouveau, come have a taste of the 2018 vintage – the third we’ve ever made. To celebrate the release of our 2018 Cailleteau Gamay Nouveau we’re throwing a French-inspired release party. Join us in the Wine Shop for an entertaining evening with a contortionist, magician, passed canapés and an introduction to Winemaker, Ross Baker.
