Events, News, Recipes & more!
We are finally well underway with our Tasting Room Expansion and improvements at Wilson Creek. No, you don’t need a hard hat when you visit, that’s just a fun picture. During the construction, our team will be laser focused on making your visit the best experience possible. We always strive to make you, our guest, feel warm and welcomed, construction or no construction. We are going the extra mile working days and through the night to minimize as much ancillary construction dust and noise as possible. We are proud of what we are doing and can’t wait to have it ready for all of you to enjoy. If you want to see what we are doing as well as keep track of our progress, go on our website, there you will find a 3D video fly through rendering or check it out on our You Tube Channel. It’s pretty cool! Keep up with all of our exciting news, events, sales and more by following us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and You Tube.
Even though Valentine’s Day is just behind us, keep your love flourishing with those small gestures! Showing how much you care about your significant other is key to keeping your relationship strong! Our very own Rosie and Gerry are a perfect example, being married for 63 Years! As Rosie would say, “Marriage isn’t 50/50, it’s 80/80,” and that is what she always tells our brides!
Rosie and Gerry being the foundation of Wilson Creek, and building upon their legacy, is what makes our Winery so special. If you have had the pleasure of meeting them, you know what wonderful people they are. You can just see the love that they have for each other and that love spreads to everyone around them. Check out this super adorable article that The Valley Business Journal wrote this month about Rosie and Gerry and their Love Story for the Ages…
Dun dun dun dun dun NAAAAA!!! Who is ready for some Football?!?
We definitely are, AND we have the Big Game Pairings to prove it!
Now, we know you all have been working so hard on the those New Years Resolution healthy eating plans but, let’s be honest with ourselves… we will ALL be benching them come Sunday! Indulging in all of those delicious party foods with some of your favorite Wilson Creek Wines, in the company of your friends and family, oh and let’s not forget watching the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots go head to head!
Along with the smorgasbord of food you will be enjoying, you have to treat yourself to a variety of wines too. Trust me the wine will not go to waste!
At kickoff, start with a nice fresh cut veggie tray or some salty chips and dip. That will go nicely with any of our Sparkling Wines (don’t forget the Vanilla is on sale right now for $10 online only), Roussanne, VS White Cabernet, or “Yes Dear” Chardonnay. All of these have very light and crisp characteristics that will just be so delicious with those Starters.
Throughout the game when the main dishes get passed around, breakout any of our Cabernet Sauvignons, a nice Family Reserve Zinfandel, or Double Dog Red to pair with those hot plates of Pizza, Chili, Meatballs, and Burgers! Mmm!
Towards the end of the game while your doin your Victory Dance you can’t forget the Dessert! Some nice Football themed Chocolate Cupcakes, Brownies, and Cookies will just sweeten the win with a nice glass of Late Harvest Chardonnay, Angelica, or Decadencia. If you purchase the Decadencia make sure to grab a bottle of Rose Sparkling and get the 2 pack for only $39.99 all month long in the Tasting Room and Online.) TOUCHDOWN!!!!
Everyone have a safe and fun Football Sunday!
THANKS TO YOU – We are proud to announce the Wine Club family has grown to over 1,000 MORE members in just an astonishing three-month time period! We are amazed at the response and are very happy to have such a large family. Thank you all for joining. We hope this Wine Club will be a fun experience for you and that Wilson Creek can be your “Extended Family” when you visit us for wine tasting or Wine Club events. Thanks again for being part of the family.
The very first article for our “Extended Family” Wine Club Newsletter was July/August 2001. WOW, how time flies! Since then we have grown quite a bit in our wine club, as well as the winery! There has been a lot of changes but one thing that hasn’t changed and never will is our love for our “extended family”. Our wine club is our heart and soul of the winery and today once again we thank you!
Today we see quite a few faces from our beginning who are still wine club members. Some still have their original wine club member card and are proud to show it! Our tasting room was full of our member’s photos which have since been removed with blowing out walls to accommodate our large growing family. We have started construction above the tasting room to add Reserve and paired tastings as well as an additional venue for events. We can’t wait to welcome you to our new room!
We’ve taken the tent down and replaced it with our beautiful events building including our Champagne Ballroom to accommodate the wedding receptions from the tent. In addition, we have a delicious restaurant, the Creekside Grille. It offers Wine Club Wednesday’s where members who purchase 2 entrées receive a bottle of wine for 50% off. We also have a fabulous Sunday brunch which if you haven’t tried it is something worth experiencing.
Our clubs have grown from the traditional Reds, Whites, and Desserts to having a club for everyone! Bi-monthly Mixed, Reds, Reserve, and Our Brand New White Cab Club. We also have the Semi-annual Winemaker Favorites as well as Online Wine Clubs which really work well for out of state members who love our Sparkling, White Cabernet and VS Cabernet (formerly known as Duet).
We had some great events over the years. From wonderful Jazz concerts, which have evolved to amazing Country concerts. Our members remember the wonderful Thursday Tapas, Joey and Maria’s Comedy Italian Wedding, and Cigar Nights just to name a few. We are planning some wonderful events for this year. All information will be in our newsletter as well as on our website.
We thank you again for being part of our extended family here at Wilson Creek Winery. We look forward to welcoming you back home when you visit us next.
