A LOOK AT THE UPCOMING WEEKEND
*Featuring Afternoon Music!!
We are writing you about a new wine club feature at Crystal Basin Cellars. Every year, we experience overwhelming demand for our Gold Medal winning wines after the results are in from the four competitions that we enter on a regular basis. While it is great to see these wines fly out of the cellar, we are noticing one key element that we are missing:
When our wine clubbers show up and request these wines - we are often out of stock.
So, we pulled some corks and sat around and puzzled on this problem and came up with our Gold Medal Shipment!
This will become a regular mid-summer feature of the Wine Club and could include any of the wines that we enter into competitions - depending on our gold medal results. The shipment will be 3 bottles and will come to you at the same cost as the other wine club shipments during the year. Because of limited supply, we won't feature a Double Down deal on the Gold Medal Shipment.
We've been awarded gold medals for our vintages since 2001 and don't plan to see different results going forward. We were just invited to the CA State Fair Commercial Wine Competition Awards Presentation and tasting. While we were walking around sampling wines from other award winners (yes - we really do that!), we noticed a very important fact: No Other Winery had a lineup of award winners from their 2011 vintage. This was a watershed moment. We saw winning wines from 2010 and 2012, but virtually nothing from the difficult 2011 harvest. That was the vintage for which winemaking skills and talent were paramount. Simply put - we kicked butt!
As we've mentioned, the Gold Medal shipment will be a regular feature of the Wine Club going forward. We are planning to run the charge for this club on July 2nd - but - if this charge will cause you hardship or you'd like to skip this shipment for 2014, please let us know as soon as you are able! You can contact us by phone (530 647-1767) or by email before noon on July 2nd.
