Gold Vine Grill “12 @ 6”  Wine Paired Dinner will be on Wednesday, October 19th at 6 PM, with Chaim & Elisheva from c.g. di Arie Vineyards.  This is a 4-Course Wine Paired meal.  The cost is  just $50.00 per person, which includes all food, wine, tax and gratuity.  Be sure to make your resevations soon, as this event is sure to be a sell out!

Next month, in November, we will feature Ruggero from Mastroserio Vineyards.

Yesterday, as I began to write this blog, it was steadily raining outside.  I guess Fall has arrived!  I had been at a really fun Annual Release Party at MV, where John & Cindy Miller were releasing their newest wine “The Beast”!  The beast is a blend of Malbec, Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon, and it a very BIG wine with a very BIG flavor!

A couple of weeks prior, I stopped by the Grand Opening of Sentivo Vineyards.  Sentive is located on Fair Play Road, just across from Pallissandro.  I have to tell you that I was really impressed with the entire event.  The tasting room as well as the grounds are absolutely beautiful, designed to make the guest feel pampered and relaxed.  The next time  you are out on a wine tasting venture, take the time to check out Sentivo.

You may have noticed that there’s some action going on at the site of the former “Bechard” tasting room.  It’s true, there are new kids on the block.  Charlie & Renee will be opening their tasting room soon in that location.  They most recently moved here from South Lake Tahoe, and prior to that lived in Paso Robles, where they  still own vineyards.

With Autumn in the air, this is one of the best times of year to get out & enjoy the mild weather, the changing colors, and the wineries of Fair Play.  And of course, your day will only be complete with a meal at the Gold Vine Grill!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 29th, when Saluti Cellars will be hosting a fundraising event for local Firefighters.  “Fire & Wine” will be held from 5-7 PM, with hors d ‘oeuvres being catered by Gold Vine Grill.  Saluti has a couple of fabulous venues for just this kind of event.  Tickets are $30.00 per person.  Please call Mary @ Gold Vine Grill for more details!

Greg & I are quickly headed toward celebrating our 14th year in business here in Somerset/Fair Play.  It’s been quite an adventure, with many friends made over the years, and lots of great meals served and good times.  Keep posted for our annual Holiday Open House information, where we will be celebrating our 14th birthday!

One of the fun & exciting things coming up is aCaribbean Cruise being hosted by our good friend, Shari Fitzpatrick.  She, along with MV (Miller Vineyards) and Nello Olivo Winery are putting together a Wine & Chocolate Cruise!  This cruise will leave Miami for a 7-Day Cruise on March 18th 2017.  We are trying to get in on the fun, and book some cabins with Gold Vine. There are also more details on our Events and chocolate cruise


Have a wonderful and safe October, and maybe get out on Hwy 88 to see the quaking Aspens…they are not visible for very long, so the sooner the better.

See you soon!
