ragapple lassieWow – what a glorious weekend!  Warm, balmy air, beautiful sunshine and blooming daffodils.

However, we still have March before us so, please don’t wish for spring just yet ’cause we will have some more cold weather – maybe even snow – before spring is here to stay.  And, too much warm weather means an early bud break in the vineyards which is NOT good!  So please be patient – everything in good time!

But, whatever the weather, Ragapple Lassie has lots of fun things planned including lunch at The Back Door Café on Saturday and Sunday by reservation.

The release of our newest dry red Zinfandel continues this Saturday, March 5th.  Come, claim your free taste and stock up your cellar.  According to winemaker, Linda, “It will blow your socks off!”  The bottles flew out the door last weekend but not to worry, we still have a ‘few’ bottles left!

I do not know what we (or you) have done to bring Mother Nature’s Winter Wrath upon us.  For the second January in a row, extreme cold and weekly snow casts have become the norm.  Hence, RagApple Lassie has been busy planning a plethora of activities to help banish the winter doldrums!  Complete details for each event will be available at ragapplelassie.com within the week, but in the meantime take a glance at the ‘quick list’ shown below.

Please note:  We are always pleased and happy to have you join us for lunch, in The Back Door Café,  but please,  during the winter months of January and February,  call in advance and let us know you are coming so we will have ‘enough beans in the pot for you too!’ And remember, an enhanced and enlarged menu will be introduced in the spring!

Winter Quick List:

January 29th & 30th, and February 26th & 27th, are the dates for the Annual Yadkin Winter Reds featuring seven of the Yadkin County wineries in January and seven in February.

February 5th  & 6th, RagApple Lassie will feature special chocolate treats and on February 6th will add SOUPer Bowl samples of homemade soups.  Reservations needed.

February 12th, 13th, & 14th – chocolate treat specials continue each day PLUS Romantic Valentine LUNCHES by reservation only each day.  Two menus to choose from which include a four course lunch and separate wine pairing with each course.  Seatings at 12 noon and 2:00 p.m. daily.  RESERVATIONS REQUIRED.  $35.00 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

February 15th, 16th & 17th – Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in Winston-Salem will be hosting wine dinners showcasing one wine from each of the five Yadkin River Wine Trail wineries with each course.  Details and reservations at 336-659-3973.

February 19th – Come play Wine Trivia to win free tastings, glasses of wine and if you are really good, a whole bottle!

February 26th and 27th – second half of the Yadkin Winter Reds Event and if you missed RagApple Lassie during the January dates, we will offer our same tasty samples again!
