We can’t wait to kick off this holiday weekend and celebrate red, wine, and blue with you!
Wine & Paint Monday
Starting July 3rd, join us inside the beautiful Willow Creek Winery every Monday 6pm-8pm for an enchanting evening of painting along with wine!
The class is taught by Carol King Hood, a SOMA Gallery artist. Painting since early childhood, she had the special opportunity to study under nationally known artist, Frieda Richter from age ten to sixteen. She received training in fine art fundamentals, composition, charcoal life drawing, oil painting, in both outdoor – plein air style – and studio painting environments. After attending college, she held several positions as an Illustrator and Graphic Artist, while continuing to develop her fine arts style. While raising her four children, she also worked as a freelance artist and personally created a line of greeting cards which she has continued to develop and expand. Many of her paintings, prints and cards can now be seen on her website, www.carolkinghood.net.
Hood, a dear friend to our entire farm family and our resident artist, also has her own studio on the farm. In her “Little Renoir Studio,” Hood devotes her time to her work (often accompanied by her studio cat, Mr. Fatty Renoir) and also teaches personalized classes with students of all ages, from as young as four to well into adulthood. Among her many talents is her ability to make art accessible to anyone, no matter a person’s age or artistic background.
Each week will feature two of Hood’s works, which students may imitate or use as inspiration for their own unique creations. The opening night class on July 3, 2017 will feature the following two paintings (the hollyhocks were painted here in our very own gardens!):
Tickets are priced at $55 including a glass of any wine or sangria. Tickets include all art supplies including paint, easel, and a blank canvas to create your own masterpiece! Our tapas menu is offered throughout the night as well as wines and sangria by glass or bottle.
Only a limited number of slots are available each week, and tickets must be purchased in advance so please call ahead to reserve your canvas.
To purchase tickets or for more information, please call 609-770-8782 ext. 5
New Wilde Cock Wine Blends
Just an update on our two new Wilde Cock wines! Check us out at https://willowcreekwinerycapemay.com/our-wines/current-wine-list/ to view our current wine list and for more details.
In case you didn’t know, our wine menu changes every few months as the most popular sell out and new ones are released. While many wine lovers are aware of the differences between vintages produced from the same exact vines, you may not have known that our blends change periodically as well. Every year our winemaker and cellar manager work closely to determine exactly which wines should be blended to produce something truly magnificent. The real power of blending lies in the potential for adding complexity to the resulting wine — multiple flavors and aromas, something to stimulate every part of your mouth, a wine that has plenty of fruit at the start and something left for the finish. While there are many incredible grapes that are easily capable of standing on their own as they are transformed into impressive wines, a winemaker is always in pursuit of the perfect balance of fruit, acid, tannin, alcohol, color and (sometimes) oak.
Our Wilde Cock Red and Wilde Cock White table wines have always been among our most popular agricultural products, and we are more excited than ever about their brand new blends!
Previously a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Chambourcin, our Wilde Cock Red is now a special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from our farm and Tempranillo from our friends in Santa Barbara, both aged in French oak with great acids for food and a delicious spice to make this a very special treat. Use caution as this “knock-back red” has a drinkability that might turn you into a Wilde Cock!
Equally exciting, our Wilde White, which was a blend of Malvasia Bianca and Chardonnay, is now a stainless steel fermented blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, making this the ultimate summertime beach blend that is still able to stand up to a rich dessert and even smoked chicken.
Wilde Cock Red (dry) Wilde Cock White (dry)
80% Cabernet Sauvignon 80% Sauvignon Blanc
20% Tempranillo 20% Pinot Grigio
$26 bottle | $8 glass $24 bottle | $7 glass
See you at the farm!
