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.

While tickets may be available at the door, we encourage you to purchase your event ticket in advance - ticketholders will receive preferred seating and this event may sell out.
