Shop our favorites for the host or hostess during the most wonderful time of the year!


Mimosa Mornings Gift Basket

Make winter mornings bright with a little bubble! Semi-sweet Bubblecraft White is perfect for the classic cocktail, or on its own. Plus, mix up the easy crepe mix from Stonewall Kitchen for a tasty mid-morning treat!


Creekbend Vidal Blanc Sparkling

Toast the holidays with this sparkling wine. Crafted by hand using traditional “methode champenoise” in small batches by our vineyard crew, this brut-style wine is a staff favorite. Fresh and delicate, yet complex and balanced, enjoy in a mimosa or on its own.


Cherry Chirp Cocktail

This simple cocktail combines a few of our favorite things: festive color, a gram-worthy garnish, and of course, Cherry Moscato. One sip, and you’ll be sold. Get the recipe and surprise your friends with this original creation!

Recipes for the Holiday Host

When everyone is home for the holidays, we like foods and fun cocktails that are quick, easy, and come in large batches! These simple (but delicious) crepes pair well with even the pickiest palettes, and the classic mimosa is a festive delight.ย Asset 2We know what we’ll be reaching for this holiday season! Our dry (and locally-grown) Creekbend Sparkling Vidal Blanc is our staple for the classic mimosa.

Quick Cures for the Winter Blues

The winter blues are no joke, so we had a quick chat with our Events & Hospitality Manager, Darcie Lowe, to find out how she beats these gray days. Here’s what she had to say:

Cabernet Hot Chocolate

“I succumb to the winter cold and warm up from the inside out by adding some of our Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 to a cup of hot chocolate (see recipe below). It pairs well with Netflix and a heated blanket!”

Bubblecraft White Mimosa

I love adding a splash of orange juice to our Oliver Bubblecraft White to turn my favorite sparkling wine into a fun breakfast beverage. Perfect for brunch!”

Beanblossom Hard Cider

“Remember summer? Yeah… me either. That’s why I turn to our Beanblossom Original Hard Cider – to take me back to the dog days of summer spent on the lake, sipping refreshing ciders under the hot sun. Pair with some reggae tunes and a travel magazine!”
