Fall at Vino Oasi

Happy (almost) Autumn to our Vino Fans,

VINEYARD UPDATE

I’m sure we aren’t the only folks to be relishing in the cooler nights we have been receiving this week. With the heat that couldn’t be beat, we saw a very early, small harvest of our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes this season. After an invigorating trip to the Yadkin wine region over Labor Day (versus the beach, thanks to Hermine) we surmised that grapes can be fickle, but continuous learning, experimenting and proper vine management practices will pay off sweetly (or dryly) in the end. We look forward to the possibility of expanding our varietals and number of vines as we continue to grow over the next few seasons.

IN OTHER NEWS

To sum up the summer, we were busier than expected! With two large family reunions, our dinner series, wine tastings and of course the Hawg in the Holler Music Festival, our property and plates were full of great activity. We are actively booking special events for 2017 and have only two to three weekend dates available and a handful of weeknights available in 2016 should you, your family or company wish to host an event.

Starting this month, gift certificates will be available for purchase for the holiday season. They can be written in any denomination and have no expiration. Our t-shirt and wine basket specials will be back as well.
