Celebrate Columbus Day and discover a new world of Oliver wines. We are all guilty of finding that favorite wine and sticking with it. The trust that is built with that wine is kind of like that “go-to” recipe or the hairdresser that never lets you down. As much as we encourage you to rely on your favorites, we thought it would be fun to make some recommendations for those creatures of habit. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone a bit.
We picked a few of our most popular wines and made some suggestions for you to taste next time you visit us.
Riesling Enthusiasts – Our Riesling has a touch of sweetness with hints of apple, pear and melon. Delicious! A real crowd-pleaser. Other wines that you might enjoy include:
Gewurztraminer – Riesling’s partner in crime has exotic fruit tones, a touch of sweetness and a spicy finish. Perfect when you are looking for a little spice in your life.
Creekbend Vidal Blanc – This Creekbend wine is very Reisling-esque with subtle hints of apple and pear with a light sweetness.
Creekbend Vignoles – Another Creekbend wine that is sure to please. This wine is a bit more sweet than Riesling with rich flavors of melon and honey.
Merlot Maniacs – While our Merlot has a rich, smooth mouthfeel and bright berry flavors, you may also find that you enjoy:
Creekbend Chambourcin – Known for its bright fruit character and soft tannins, this Creekbend wine is an easy-drinking dry red with a lot of character.
Cabernet Sauvignon – With a richer mouthfeel and deeper flavors, this Cabernet is drinking beautifully right now. It will age nicely.
Soft Red Fanatics – There is nothing better than the luscious, sweet & refreshing taste of freshly squeezed Concord grapes. Soft Red is irresistible – we know! But we think you will also enjoy:
Sangria Classic – Festive, sweet & refreshing. Pour this Sangria into a glass pitcher, garnish with citrus slices and throw a fiesta!
Creekbend Catawba – This wine will be released this winter. So keep an eye out on this special sweet wine from Creekbend.
So discover a new wine this Columbus Day. You can find many of our wines at your local grocery or liquor store. If you can’t find Oliver on the shelves, just ask a wine clerk to point you in the right direction. You can also order online or just drop in to the tasting room for a visit. We’d love to see you this fall.
