Level Red, prefer rose

Update on Thursday November 18th, 2020.

Level RED, Patio Heaters and Beaujolais Nouveau!

Today is the third Thursday in November which means this year's Beaujolais Nouveau is available! Often weak and tart, ours is from Dupeuble whose winery has been working since 1512. The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without SO2. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. They aren't trying to be "hip" this is just the way they've rolled forever.

We only get a couple cases each year, so stop in for the best Nouveau out there at just $19 a bottle!

 

More good news first...

Yep! That's a patio heater and that's our patio! We've snagged a few of them and have more on order. With the new restrictions coming at us, we're excited to be able to make outside seating a bit more comfortable!

Also, we now take reservations for the patio because those are the only tables we can seat people at come Fr

iday at 5pm!

Now the Bad News...

We are entering a new level of restriction here in Adams County, or as we refer to it, just another episode in "Restaurant Impossible!" in a season that never ends! We've been getting a lot of calls today and wanted to let you all know that we are still hanging in there and will do what we can to be here for all of you. But as of Friday at 5pm.

  • All indoor dining is prohibited, we'll only be seating on the patio
  • We will now take reservations for the patio
  • Take out, curbside, delivery and to-go orders are all still allowed
  • Outdoor dining is allowed only with members of one household per table
  • Last call for alcohol is 8:00 p.m., we will continue to close at 9pm so we can clean up and get staff home before the curfew at 10pm
  • Wine Cellar will also close at 9pm
  • Maximum party size outside is 6, you are not allowed to have more than 6 no matter how many tables you sit at

We wish you all the best, and hope you stay healthy and well. Bacchus willing, we'll see you on the other side of this.

 


Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • tip top old fashion

    #1 tip top old fashion


    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 11 bottles)

  • Peter Adler Auslese Riesling

    #3 Peter Adler Auslese Riesling

    An amazing value for Auslese (certified ripeness) fruit from Germany's Mosel River Valley. Classic light petroleum and mineral nose yet flavor sweet and soft with hints of apricots and vanilla cake. A great German staple with pork of all kinds and cheeses from soft Brie to hard Gouda. (behind by 1 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 1 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.

  • Porron Decanter

    Porron Decanter

    The porron wine pitcher is a festive way to serve wine. Either use as a decanter or just pick up the porron and tilt it so that a thin stream of wine pours directly into your mouth! It takes some skill, but it is fun at a party to see how well you and your friends master the technique. Each porron holds 1 liter, which is a perfect size to hold a bottle of wine.

  • Miquel Pons 77 Xarelho

    Miquel Pons 77 Xarelho

    Paying homage to Miquel Pons who has 77 harvests under his belt is this delicious Xarel·lo. Handpicked and aged in French barrels with generous lees treatment, this is Xarel-lo like none we ever had. Gorgeous earthy acidty wrapped in creamy texture and ample oak. If you are a Cali chard drinker, prepare to have your heart broken by this Spanish seductress!

  • Poseidon Pinot Noir

    Poseidon Pinot Noir

    From vineyards with a view of the bay comes this well balanced, lively and delicious Pinot Noir. A easy drinking, medium-bodied wine showing off some rare and black pepper spiced Hungarian oak to balance the raspberry aromas and flavors.
