In theory, summer is supposed to be a relaxing time, but it is busier than ever for us at the winery!
We have a new addition to the winery grounds: A beautiful gazebo! That, added to our lovely patio with fans, allows us to provide a more complete and comfortable experience to our customers. The gazebo will be a great stage for musical guests providing entertainment at events as well as a pretty location for weddings held at the winery.
Another new addition to the winery is our video intern, Kaitlin. You may see her around the grounds behind the camera. She comes to us from Wilmington University and is helping us to establish programming that will promote the winery beyond our property as well as inform our customers while visiting the winery. For more information on Kaitlin, you can read her introductory blog post here.
We are currently at 68 wine club members. Last month Harvest Ridge owner, Chuck Nunan, promised a surprise for the first 100 people to sign up to be a wine club member. Wine club members get access to member-only events at the winery, special discounts, and first crack at tickets for winery events. If you want to be part of that group, contact the winery at 302.343.9437. We are preparing for our second pick up party on August 9 and you won’t want to miss it! (Current wine club members will be receiving their email invitations shortly. Watch your inbox!)
