In January we learned Cellardoor wines won 24 awards, including two Best of Class awards, three Double Golds, and five Golds at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition (SFCWC). As our Winemaker Aaron Peet exclaimed a few days ago; it is a good start to 2019! Read More
Today, we, Cellardoor in partnership with Bangor Savings Bank’s Buoy Local, are proud to announce the introduction of The Buoy, an engagingly fruity, yet crisp and mouthwatering, blend of Semillon, Riesling, and Chenin blanc.
This week our winery team has received 24 tons of Tempranillo, Merlot, and Grenache as well as the juice of Semillon and Chenin blanc. While some of our crew is sorting fruit as it heads for pressing, others are managing pumpovers three times a day, prepping yeast for inoculation, and of course, cleaning and testing as we go. Crush is crushing on.
When a member of our team pours Cellardoor C’est de ‘or in our tastings rooms, it’s likely they’ll paint a picture of sitting in front of wood stove after dinner. That’s because our Port inspired wine, whose name means “it is of gold,” IS the perfect after dinner cordial to drink in front of a fire in the middle of winter. Read More
After a rainy May, a few warm sunny days was all our vines needed to start their annual growth cycle. Tiny buds had begun to swell on the laid down canes, and before we knew it, bud break!
The results from Finger Lakes International Wine Competition & Camp Good Days Wine Auction and Great American International Wine Competition are in, and we couldn’t be more proud of the results and our winery team!
