Annual Wine Club Barrel Tasting
May 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Wine Club Members! You’re cordially invited to our annual Wine Club Barrel Tasting & Futures Event which will take place on Sunday, May 19th, from 12PM-2PM in the barrel room at our winery (Premium Wine Group, 35 Cox Neck Road, Mattituck).
Barrel tasting is a unique opportunity for you to step inside our winery, which is normally closed to the public, and to taste “in progress” samples from the latest vintage BEFORE the wines are available in our tasting rooms. You can also purchase “futures” of the wines at a discounted cost.
Under the direction of winemaker Russell Hearn, you’ll taste 2017 Estate Sparkling Pinot Blanc, 2018 Member’s Only Pinot Blanc-Riesling, 2018 Bridge Lane Chardonnay, 2018 Bridge Lane Red Blend and 2018 Estate Petit Verdot. A selection of cheeses from Lombardi’s Market will be paired with each of the wines.
A note about the 2018 vintage:
2018 was a challenging growing season which required a diligent vineyard management approach. To promote airflow through the canopy, we were proactive with hand leaf removal and our sustainable spray program. Aug-Oct saw double the average rainfall during the period. Despite this, heat spikes in August helped push the fruit for sparkling wine, still white and rosé to clean maturity. The grapes for our red wines were picked approximately two weeks later than normal to allow for maximum flavor development.
