2016 Valentine’s Day Party was a Success!

Thank you to all who joined us for our Valentine’s Day event! We absolutely loved sharing this special day with you. We were overwhelmed with the positive response to the event and were happy to hear that so many of you enjoyed it.  There have been a few requests from our members to have tables and chairs available, and next year, we’ll make sure they are there! Thanks again for joining us – take a peek at a few photos from the event!

VALENTINES DAY

 

Mt. Vernon featured in

Wineries of the Sierra Foothills

We are proud to announce that Mt. Vernon winery was chosen as one of the very special chapters in the new book: Wineries of the Sierra Foothills, by Barbara Keck.  Only 21 wineries from the 10 Foothills counties are featured in the book featuring “Risk-Takers and Rule-Breakers” from the region.  We are the subject of a compelling why-we-did-it-story, and you’ll enjoy the wonderful candid photos, in addition to a recipe we crafted to pair with one of our great wines.  There’s also information on the history of winemaking in our county, and a complete up-to-date directory of all 280 wineries in the foothills.

Swing by the tasting room with your copy and we’ll be happy to sign the Mt. Vernon Chapter when we see you next! Barbara Keck, the author and long-time wine columnist for The Tahoe Weekly, will soon be joining us to meet our members and guests and answer your questions.
