Black Russian Red Bash

Please call us or email to let us know if you plan to attend!

$7 per Clan Club member $12 for non-members

Experience a mini-vertical tasting of Black Russian Red for an additional fee of $5. Join us at the winery to celebrate the public release of our 2013 Black Russian Red 36 Month Barrel Reserve. This is our second ever release of a “Reserve” designated Black Russian Red and it is breathtaking! This field blend of Saperavi and Sereksiya grapes is the cult red wine of the Finger Lakes.

After producing each of these grape varieties separately from 1985-1990, we introduced this blend with the 1991 vintage. The Bash was created years ago as a way to celebrate this unique wine, and to thank all of you for appreciating it! In addition to enjoying this Reserve vintage, visitors have the opportunity to experience a mini-vertical tasting of Black Russian Red during the event for an additional fee of $5. This line-up includes a few vintages from the McGregor wine library and a sample of the 2014 vintage right out of the wine barrel!

A limited quantity of the “library” vintages are for sale during this weekend only and discounted “futures” purchases of the barrel sample wine are available as well. Everyone receives a complimentary McGregor logo wine glass.

Nyssa Trepes, owner of the Kismet New American Bistro in Naples, NY is again preparing the foods you’ll enjoy alongside the Black Russian Red.

Nyssa is serving these mouthwatering foods:

Moroccan Beef Stew & Baguette

Flourless Chocolate Torte with Black Cherry Coulis

Please let us know if you plan to attend so Nyssa can prepare the appropriate amount of food.
