New Wilde Cock Wine Blends

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.

Thursday Weddings: Why They Work in a Town like Cape May

Is Thursday the new Saturday?

These benefits might have you saying, “I do” to a Thursday wedding! 

#1 A cost-saving move.

Any couple would love to save a couple. The cost difference alone between a Saturday wedding and a Thursday wedding is HUGE! Vendors will also be a lot cheaper on a weekday versus a Saturday night. 

#2 Spend the whole weekend.

Well, you’re here anyway, and everyone wants an excuse to take off of work to spend time with family. While you’re here, you might as well plan for a weekend getaway, and enjoy all of what the beautiful town of Cape May has to offer!

#3 Great deal on hotel rates.

It’s a big deal when you can get a great deal! Not only are you saving money on your wedding, but you are also getting quite the deal on a hotel nearby for your guests.
