Have travel restrictions reduced your ability to visit your favorite wine regions, or disrupted your plans to go abroad? Create your own “Brunch in the Vineyards” with the help of Queen of Wines and Residence Inn Raleigh Downtown.
Embark on a virtual and personable trip to meet Queen of Wines winery partners and spend time in the vineyards as well as in the cellars with our friend winemakers as they are going through the most intense time of the year: Harvest and Vinification.
Plan for a leisurely Saturday brunch, live Zoom between noon and 1 p.m. with family or close friends, from the comfort and safety of your home (or your backyard). Cook your preferred recipes or follow pairing recommendations shared by the winemakers themselves.
A wine package including one to two bottles, carefully selected with our friend winemakers, will be available for you to pick up prior to the event. Just connect with the Zoom link provided and enjoy the ride!
After visiting and tasting each wine with the winemaker at their family estate, you will be offered the opportunity to order some more at a preferred price.
Saturday, October 31, 2020: Thomas Farge, Domaine Guy Farge (RHONE, FR)
Two great wines drinking beautifully and featuring the most famous grapes of the Northern Rhone valley!
Bouquet de Blanc 2018
Domaine Guy Farge
AOP Vin de Pays de l’Ardèche
Intense golden hue with green reflection. Open nose on a floral and fruity expression, with notes of spices, almond paste, dried apricot, and bitter orange. Round on the palate, combining vivacity and richness with a good length.
Terroir de Granit 2018
Domaine Guy Farge
AOP Saint Joseph
Deep purplish-red color with violet hints. The nose reveals some redcurrant, spice, and fern aromas. On the palate, this wine combines freshness, fine tannins, and flavorful notes echoing the aromas displayed on the nose.
Wine Package Price = $65.00
Pick up your wine from Residence Inn Raleigh Downtown before Thursday, October 29.
If you are unable to attend the live event, we will send you an archived copy to relive the event at a time that is more convenient for you. However, you will not have the luxury of interacting with the winemaker so we recommend attending live if possible.
