Spring was definitely in the air approaching the beautiful grounds of Silver Sage Winery. Bursts of color were evident as I found owner/winemaker, Anna Manola, getting ready to plant more spring flowers.
While 2012 started out dubious, it gave way to a fall that never ended, resulting in one of the most outstanding vintages Anna could remember. The winter was also kind, with little to no damage in the vineyards.
During 2012 the onsite B&B was very successful with many new and repeat guests staying for three days to a full week. Silver Sage has made some lasting friendships with guests and look forward to their return visits. Some come to celebrate an occasion while others to relax and enjoy the fantastic wine experience at Silver Sage Winery.
The 2013 new releases for Spring Wine Festival and summer are:
2012 Gewürztraminer, 2012 Pinot Blanc, 2012 Pinot Blanc Dessert Wine, 2012 The Pearle, 2012 Flame, 2012 Sunset [very little left], 2011 Merlot [very promising with blackberry/black currant, low tannins and very soft], 2011 Pinot Noir “the Passion”.
Silver Sage Winery invites tourists, guests and locals to visit and enjoy a unique tasting journey – something you will want to do this spring/summer season.
