Level Red, prefer rose

Update on Thursday November 18th, 2020.

Level RED, Patio Heaters and Beaujolais Nouveau!

Today is the third Thursday in November which means this year's Beaujolais Nouveau is available! Often weak and tart, ours is from Dupeuble whose winery has been working since 1512. The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without SO2. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. They aren't trying to be "hip" this is just the way they've rolled forever.

We only get a couple cases each year, so stop in for the best Nouveau out there at just $19 a bottle!

 

More good news first...

Yep! That's a patio heater and that's our patio! We've snagged a few of them and have more on order. With the new restrictions coming at us, we're excited to be able to make outside seating a bit more comfortable!

Also, we now take reservations for the patio because those are the only tables we can seat people at come Fr

iday at 5pm!

Now the Bad News...

We are entering a new level of restriction here in Adams County, or as we refer to it, just another episode in "Restaurant Impossible!" in a season that never ends! We've been getting a lot of calls today and wanted to let you all know that we are still hanging in there and will do what we can to be here for all of you. But as of Friday at 5pm.

  • All indoor dining is prohibited, we'll only be seating on the patio
  • We will now take reservations for the patio
  • Take out, curbside, delivery and to-go orders are all still allowed
  • Outdoor dining is allowed only with members of one household per table
  • Last call for alcohol is 8:00 p.m., we will continue to close at 9pm so we can clean up and get staff home before the curfew at 10pm
  • Wine Cellar will also close at 9pm
  • Maximum party size outside is 6, you are not allowed to have more than 6 no matter how many tables you sit at

We wish you all the best, and hope you stay healthy and well. Bacchus willing, we'll see you on the other side of this.

 


Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #1 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

  • tip top old fashion

    #3 tip top old fashion

    (behind by 14 bottles)

  • Donausonne Blaufrankish

    #4 Donausonne Blaufrankish

    If you can't pronounce this grape don't worry! Neither can anyone else. Sweet berry and red fruits in this light, pretty wine from Hungary. Rich flavor with no bitter tannins. A great sweeter red that is a big seller here. Many folks feel its the only red wine for them! (behind by 13 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Augier le singulier

    Augier le singulier

    Founded in 1643, Augier is the oldest producer of cognac in the world! This cognac in particular uses 100% Folle Blanche, providing unique characteristics. Aromatic, fruity notes with subtle nuances of caramel from oaking. Ridiculously smooth and delicious. It's no mystery why Augier have been in business for so long!

  • Three Brooms

    Three Brooms

    This single vineyard, certified sustainable sav blanc shows lovely white flower, chili pepper, and gooseberry on the nose with some sandy mineralogy. Very nice weight and balance showing passion fruit, ripe apple flavors. Such a pleasant surprise is the roundness, the acid is lively and energetic but not abrasive.

  • Armas de Guerra Mencia

    Armas de Guerra Mencia

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.

  • A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    This four grain whiskey uses a blend of rye, wheat and barley sourced from the Colorado Malting Company, and corn from Briess Malting in Wisconsin - encompassing the "mother grains" of bourbon. The whiskey ages about 3 years, all year round to capture the seasonal nuances from the ever-changing Colorado mountain air, in new, 53 gallon charred oak barrels source from Independent Stave Company.
