Level Red, prefer rose

Update on Thursday November 18th, 2020.

Level RED, Patio Heaters and Beaujolais Nouveau!

Today is the third Thursday in November which means this year's Beaujolais Nouveau is available! Often weak and tart, ours is from Dupeuble whose winery has been working since 1512. The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without SO2. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. They aren't trying to be "hip" this is just the way they've rolled forever.

We only get a couple cases each year, so stop in for the best Nouveau out there at just $19 a bottle!

 

More good news first...

Yep! That's a patio heater and that's our patio! We've snagged a few of them and have more on order. With the new restrictions coming at us, we're excited to be able to make outside seating a bit more comfortable!

Also, we now take reservations for the patio because those are the only tables we can seat people at come Fr

iday at 5pm!

Now the Bad News...

We are entering a new level of restriction here in Adams County, or as we refer to it, just another episode in "Restaurant Impossible!" in a season that never ends! We've been getting a lot of calls today and wanted to let you all know that we are still hanging in there and will do what we can to be here for all of you. But as of Friday at 5pm.

  • All indoor dining is prohibited, we'll only be seating on the patio
  • We will now take reservations for the patio
  • Take out, curbside, delivery and to-go orders are all still allowed
  • Outdoor dining is allowed only with members of one household per table
  • Last call for alcohol is 8:00 p.m., we will continue to close at 9pm so we can clean up and get staff home before the curfew at 10pm
  • Wine Cellar will also close at 9pm
  • Maximum party size outside is 6, you are not allowed to have more than 6 no matter how many tables you sit at

We wish you all the best, and hope you stay healthy and well. Bacchus willing, we'll see you on the other side of this.

 


Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #1 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #2 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 12 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

Fun New Arrivals

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.

  • Augier le singulier

    Augier le singulier

    Founded in 1643, Augier is the oldest producer of cognac in the world! This cognac in particular uses 100% Folle Blanche, providing unique characteristics. Aromatic, fruity notes with subtle nuances of caramel from oaking. Ridiculously smooth and delicious. It's no mystery why Augier have been in business for so long!

  • Gotes del Priorat

    Gotes del Priorat

    A slightly different and wonderful lighter take on Priorat. The gorgeous blue slate show immediately on the nose, Carignan is there but with richness and elegance. Really pretty and an homage to the fruit. Gorgeous leather and blue black fruit flavors with spice and soft leather. Organic, hand picked and just 9 months in French, this really is a lovely wine!

  • Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise

    Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise

    Wine geeks know of Gigondas and Vacqueras that show off Grenache like no other. Bordering both is Beaumes de Venise which is known for fortified Muscat. On a steep hillside (at 1500 ft!) twin sisters Sabine and Isabelle make this earthy, spicy blend of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. A gorgeous wine.
