Get your calendar out and checkbook ready! A collaborative effort of three local winemakers: Matthieu Finot- King Family, Emily Hodson Pelton- Veritas and Jake Busching- Pollak will be released next week. Apparently the three winemakers contemplated the idea while sipping beer . They decided to combine three varietals from each of their three wineries to create one special wine. Pollak Vineyards was chosen for their Petit Verdot which they have won several awards for in the past. Veritas Winery provided the Cabernet Franc, also an Annual Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association award winner. King Family Vineyards contributed the Merlot grapes which they are well known for to complete the wine. The blend is equal percentages, 33 1/3% of the three varietals. There are only 150 cases and each winery will have 50 case available for sale.
Aptly, the Release Party for “3” will be the third day of the third month at 3:30 p.m. and will be priced at $33.30 a bottle. I’ll do the math for you: the party will be at Pollak Vineyards on 3/3/2011 at 3:30! No bottles will be sold prior to that date and they will definitely go fast!
