It is with much sadness that we tell you of the passing of our loyal companion, Quin. Quin was a beloved member of our family for 15 years and had endeared himself to members of our winery family as well. Quin will be greatly missed, but he is now resting peacefully in Doggie Heaven.  

4th Quarter Wine Club Discount ends January 17th!

While Gadino Wine Club members can pick up their 4th Quarter Club wines any time, we wanted to remind you that your quarterly 25% discount period ends Monday, January 17th. 
Your 4th Quarter Club Wines are:
2019 Sunset
Traminette is the major component (96%) of this semi-sweet (2.0% RS) blend with just a touch of Seyval Blanc for structure.  Prominent floral & spicy aromas and hints of cardamom leave no doubt you are enjoying a Gerwurtztraminer!  Your taste buds will be treated to a silky smooth and delicate palate replete with lemon and honeysuckle. This wine also makes a wonderful apertif…and don’t forget that this wine is also a great complement to Thai Dishes!
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon – (Bronze Medal 2021 Governor’s Cup)
In most years, we don’t have enough “hang time” to fully mature our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes; however, 2017 treated us by avoiding any early fall freeze allowing us to delay harvest until late October.  The resulting wine has bright aromas of crushed herbs and spice that introduce a full palate of cherry, plum and hints of fig followed by subtle tannins that linger.  This wine is definitely getting better with some aging. Pair with turkey, duck or a nice ribeye.

Celebrate Martin Luther King Weekend with Wine, Music, and Extended Hours!

Gadino Cellars will be open all weekend – Friday, January 14th through Monday, January 17th – to celebrate the Martin Luther King Holiday.

For Wine Club Members:  Monday, January 17th marks the last day that you can receive a 25% discount on all wines on our tasting board.

 

HOLIDAY SPECIAL FOUR PACK

With our ’21 harvest now done and the new wines safely finishing primary fermentation in the cellar, we turned our focus to the upcoming Holiday Season and what would be a nice treat for our loyal customers throughout the Holiday Season.  It didn’t take long to come up with something we think everyone will enjoy during all your celebrations…… A HOLIDAY SPECIAL 4 PACK. We have selected four wines that will nicely complement any holiday meal as follows:  
  • 2019 Estate Chardonnay – This soon to be released wine from our “Barn Block” follows in the footsteps of our 2018 version with perhaps a bit more structure…aromas of Meyer lemon and vanilla followed by a creamy, full palate of apple, lemon and hints of spice. It’s the perfect wine to pair with shellfish appetizers, cheese/guacamole dips, and a great starter for main course turkey and ham (Virginia, of course).
  • 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon – Another pre-release that was awarded a Bronze Medal at the 2021 Virginia Governor’s Cup competition. The combination of ample black fruit, dried herbs and toasty vanilla make this a perfect wine for Turkey accompanied by creamy corn pudding and a favorite “family stuffing” recipe.
  • 2016 Delfino Rosso – This Silver Medal 2020 Virginia Governor’s Cup wine is included in case you choose more complex main course dishes such as Goose, Duck and all kinds of Roasts.
  • 2013 Finale Red Dessert Wine – We think this is a perfect example of a Ruby Port that is a phenomenal drink to pair with desserts such as Chocolate Cheese Cake, Pecan Pie and maybe even Pumpkin Pie.

Perhaps the BEST PART:  The above Special is available for $100 and is available throughout the Holiday Season starting on Black Friday and continuing through 15 January.
