it was having created six kegs of the traminette-riesling blend from York County’s Owner and winemaker Carl Helrich sent a text Monday night stating that this dry estate wine will likely be brought as a result of the bar Tuesday and are available soon at the winery.
Meanwhile, Helrich always uses his monthly e-letter to talk eloquently about something connected with wine. Since statistics show more vino is sold and consumed in December than some other month, he bounced from the idea of drinking sparkling wines to the practice of saving bottles to age.
“I don t know. A few things i do know is that all of this applies
especially to sparkling wines. This is as if this is actually the only month that individuals
consider drinking them, whereas they may be perfect year-round. Did you know
they taste equally good in July? With a Saturday night in March? Or Tuesday
lunch-time? We as Americans won’t be considered a wine-friendly culture
until starting to bring sparkling wines directly into every day life. We seem to want
to save them for December 31st.
“And, these are saving wines, what percentage of you are
sitting on a special bottle of wine right? Solar panel systems you have been saving
that special bottle for over a year? (Here’ m crossing your fingers that
if you re a wine-hoarder, that you actually like older wines. Yes, wines don’t realize
better for many people with age, but you need to know in the event you actually like older
wines. Many people don t.) Let me share a tale with you ..
“A while back I used to be speaking with a client of ours in
the tasting room. She informed me that she had obtained a bottle of Jazz from us
three years ago and was saving it for a special occasion. Now, remember
that Jazz is meant to be consumed as being a young wine aging it won t improve it
any. What you know already that I will be flattered that she would save one of our
wines and treasure it so, but my thoughts were very different from that. I used to be
sad. Some sadness for the wine which most likely was a mere shadow of its
former self at this point but mostly sadness for the woman. She d gone several years
without a big day!
So, please remember this. It s great to mark special
occasions with wine. Nevertheless it s more important to make everyday occasions
more special with wine. Break that bubbly out tonight on December 2nd, or open
that nice Burgundy you ve been saving. Do it now on a Sunday night although
you may have to go in to work tomorrow. Years from now, you ll keep this in mind
evening, nevertheless, you probably won t remember December 1st. And hopefully, you ll
thank me because of it.”
