2018 Spring Release Party

April 13-15, 2018 at RiverWalk Resort at Loon


The weekend of April 13th – 15th, we are taking some time out to celebrate the release of our spring wines as part of our Seven Birches Wine Club.  This exclusive event is open to all of our wine club members, barrel club members, RiverWalk owners, and of course, their friends and family.  We appreciate the support you have given us over the past year and we want to bring you all together for a weekend of luxury, wine, food, and fun!  Basically, we’ve created an excuse to have you come join us for a weekend in an otherwise slow time of year to drink wine with us and to have a few laughs…. to be honest.

We’ve got a good deal for you.  While you are here, you’ll rest in luxury overnight accommodations at RiverWalk Resort at Loon Mountain, the amazing resort hotel where we are located.  If you have not stayed here before, then this will be an extraordinary treat.  We’ve got special rates for our members and their friends and family.

We’ll be putting you to work (kind of).  We have an activity planned, where you’ll get hands-on (literally) experience working in our winery.  And… you’ll be taking home a bottle of wine that you helped to make.  Cool right?

Party time!  We are going to have a sampling wine tasting of all the wines included in our spring wine club release, along with some food and good old-fashioned face-to-face conversation.  Stay tuned for what will be in the release(s).

What would a wine party be without a special wine pairing dinner at LaVista Italian Cuisine?  We have a delectable 3-course fine Italian meal planned, where each course is paired with one of our Seven Birches wines.  The chef at LaVista and our Winemaker are getting together for the first time to create this unique culinary experience.

Don’t worry, we won’t wear you out.  There is time built into the itinerary for you to rest, explore, go to the spa, or check out the sights.

Don’t forget to take home the 6 bottles included in your spring club release and save yourself the shipping costs.  This is 2 weeks sooner than anyone else will get it by UPS.
