Specials and Events, September 2018

Mixed Case Special Through September

We've had a number of inquiries about whether our mixed case special is still on and yes it is, until Setember 30! You get 10% off (in addition to your club discount), for any 12 bottle case of wine--your selection. And we'll ship it to you for just $1. For example, if you are an Estate Wine Club member and you purchase a case, you get 30% off and save $34 on the shipping too. To order cases, please email me, because we have to manually enter the discount to achieve this special price. This deal cannot be combined with other specials. For a full list of our current and library wines, go to www.Rangelandwines.com/wines.

Rosé Special Still Available

We made a little more Rosé this year so, unlike last year at this time, it is still available and our special ($100 for six bottles, before club discount) is also available through month end. Don't forget that our Rosé pairs beautifully with holiday turkey and makes a great, affordable gift. Order here

Harvest Wine Weekend Brunches: Vertical Tastings 

Join us for a sit-down, small plates brunch, tent-casual, on Harvest Wine Weekend, Saturday October 20 or Sunday the 21st, 10am to noon.  Winemaker Paul Hinschberger will guide you through a vertical tasting of Rangeland Wines, including a barrel sample. Each tasting will include at least five wines and be casually paired (let's not overthink this!) with farm fresh foods, including grass-fed meat, local charcuterie, eggs, chesse and, of course, something fresh baked and sweet from the oven. Limited seating, so reserve your space early. $50 per person. Club discounts apply.

Harvest Ho!

After a cool spring and some brutal heat this summer, the weather has leveled out nicely. The vines are looking good for harvest with a generous, healthy leaf canopy and normal crop level--all turning dark right on schedule. That means at least 160,000 pounds (80+ tons from our 40 acres) of grapes are waiting to be picked by hand. A vineyard is really a miracle of fecundity. Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is already in the tank and fermenting. Our little team picked some fruit for the new Rosé just this morning. See photos. Wish us luck and anticipate the results with relish. We are getting better at this every year and it really shows in Paul's beautiful wines.
