Black Russian Red Bash
11:00 AM to 5:00 PM     Sat, Mar 7, 2020 - Sun, Mar 8, 2020
Venue: McGregor Vineyard

$10 per Clan Club member | $15 for non-members
Experience a mini-vertical tasting of Black Russian Red for an additional fee of $5.

The Black Russian Red is a field blend composed primarily of Saperavi grapes blended with a bit of Sereksiya Charni grapes. The first vintage of this unique blend was in 1991 after producing experimental batches of each of these grape varieties individually from 1985-1990. Over the last thirty years the Black Russian Red has proven over and over that it is an age worthy wine.

While the 2016 vintage is spectacular as a youthful wine, it too will develop beautifully for years to come. At the Bash, guests have the opportunity to experience a mini-vertical tasting of Black Russian Red for an additional fee of $5. This line-up includes an older vintage from the McGregor wine library, a sample of the 2016 vintage and a barrel sample that is yet to be bottled. A limited quantity of the “library” vintage is available to collectors for purchase during the event and discounted “futures” purchases of the barrel sample wine are available as well. The 2016 vintage is available in very limited quantities as well. 

Timber Stone Grill in Hammondsport, NY is our in-house caterers and are preparing a wonderful dish to compliment the Black Russian Red.

McGregor Clan Club Picnic

August 22nd, 2020

This is a ticketed event for McGregor Clan Club members and their guests only.
$35 Members | $50 Guests

Our annual picnic by the pond is a tradition started in the mid 1970s. We are excited to welcome back Gale Wyn Farms from Canandaigua to serve up their mouthwatering Pig Roast. We will also grill fresh corn on the cob in the afternoon and the wine, of course, will be plentiful!

Lifetime Clan Club member Walt Atkison, from North Carolina, performs throughout the afternoon. Walt plays some of the finest guitar and harmonica you’ll ever be treated to and we’re excited to have him back again. Additional picnic traditions include:

  • Blind Wine Tastings
  • A Live Auction of wines from our Wine Library
  • Silent Auctions
  • Raffles
  • Incredible sales on numerous wines
  • General Merriment!​

We make just one request to you: Prepare a hors d’ouvres to share with the crowd. Be creative (use some McGregor wine!) and please keep in mind that we won’t have the ability to heat/ chill what you bring. We will provide dessert! We provide chairs under the tents but we strongly suggest you bring a comfortable lawn chair. The picnic is rain or shine… Regardless of the weather, it’s sure to be one of the most memorable days of summer.

Reservations for this event will be announced to members only. To learn more about McGregor Clan Club membership visit www.mcgregorwinery.com/wine-club.
