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!

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!

So much for the specific science of weather forecasting! The weatherman said, “Just a few flurries might be mixed in with the rain expected for late in the day on Saturday!”  What we got was a winter wonderland snow – sticking to every limb and twig – beginning at 11:00 a.m. and continuing until well after dark Saturday night!!!! So once again, Mother Nature reminded us who is in control!

Gift yourself with an afternoon of joy and carols made all the more special with the great RagApple Lassie wines. Lisa Woods, a seasoned entertainer with the clear sweet voice of an angel, will fill your heart with songs of the season as you relax and enjoy the day.

And, if you still have a few gifts to buy, we have just the thing! Frank’s favorite candy, Peanut Brittle made with RagApple Lassie Chardonnay, new tote bags with our signature embroidered logo, new handcrafted bottle toppers, AND our new signature logo pewter Christmas ornaments make great gifts and or stocking stuffers!!  (And wine club members, don’t forget the special opportunities for stocking your cellar.)

Plus, the Yadkin River Wineries Holiday Wine Tour is in full swing.  Come, join the fun of tasting five wines at five wineries, receiving a free ornament at each winery to place on the handmade grapevine wreath received when you purchase your ticket. Tickets will be good through December 31st and make great Christmas presents! Check the website: http://www.yadkinriverwinetrail.com for more details.

Joyful holidays and our best to you,
Lenna and Frank

The holidays are coming – ready or not – so, we invite you to visit RagApple Lassie, sample our wines (our Chardonnay goes wonderfully with turkey), choose bottles of your favorites for holiday gatherings, gifts for friends and family, and this Saturday, enjoy “Patsy Cline,” aka Darlene Caudle, as her awesome voice works its magic on your mind.  Noon to Six.  Plus, lunches from Honeybaked Ham will be available in The Back Door Cafe!

To those of you who missed the WS Prime Wine Dinner at the Winston-Salem Marriott missed one of the best dinners that Lenna and Frank have ever eaten – worldwide!!!  So much for the idea that hotels only cook hotel food!  The menu was superbly created by Chef Christian, perfectly prepared, magnificently presented, and beautifully paired with five of our wines!  But don’t despair; you will have one more chance in early spring!  Stay tuned for details!

And, remember that the annual ‘Holiday Wine Tour” sponsored by the wineries of the Yadkin River Wine Trail: RagApple Lassie, Cellar 4201, Divine Llama, Flint Hill Vineyards and Sanders Ridge has begun and will continue through December 31st.  Tickets can be purchased at any of the wineries and cover one handmade grapevine wreath from one of the vineyards, five wine tastings at each winery, and one limited edition Christmas ornament from each winery.
