ragappleThis past Saturday was spectacular!  The glimpse of spring was so welcome and made especially nice with visits from many of you.  Dozens of you joined in the fun of the Wine Trivia Quiz designed and directed by winemaker, Linda King, and husband, Tom, and many of you won free tastings.  Congratulations to all the winners and kudos to Linda and Tom for their expertise!

This coming Saturday, February 26th, heralds the IPO (Initial public offering) of the 2007  Estate Grown Zinfandel.  To quote Winemaker, Linda, “This Zin is the best ever and will ‘knock your socks off’!”  All this, plus it is the only North Carolina Zinfandel grown right here in the Yadkin Valley!  Come, claim your free sample and see for yourself!

FYI’s:

The Back Door Café is open by reservation only until April 1 when the regular schedule resumes.

Live Music returns on April 2nd and will continue throughout the year!

Everyone is cordially invited to attend the 6:30 a.m. Easter Sunrise Service in the Vineyards sponsored by Boonville United Methodist Church. Come experience the glory of watching the sun rise behind Pilot Mountain as an acappella choir sings the traditional Easter anthems.

Stay tuned – lots of other exciting things are planned – come see us soon!

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!

Great photo shared by Danny Carter!

This Christmas, Frank and I were given the greatest gift we have EVER received!  And that was being able to spend two whole days at home doing nothing but enjoying the most beautiful snow we have ever seen!  Snow began falling on Christmas morn and continued through the next morning!   Every eyeful was just glorious, even more beautiful than a postcard, and the God given gift of not having to rush off someplace else was magnificent!

And, we truly hope that each of you experienced a joyous Christmas also.

To say thank you to all our friends as this year ends and a new one begins, we cordially

invite you to visit this weekend (we will be open our regular hours – noon to six) including New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day and take advantage of some special ‘specials,’ we have planned including the goodbye SALE for the last thirteen cases of our 2008 Zinfandel.  Since there are just thirteen cases, you can buy a case for just $131.31 or by the bottle for $13.13!   Plus, some other surprises are planned – just for you this weekend and throughout the winter months.  Stay tuned for updates!

Please note: The Back Door Café will be open from now through March by reservation only.  If you would like lunch any weekend, just give us a call and it will be ready for you.  Beginning April 1st, a new and expanded menu will be available on a regular walk-in basis!

As the old year ends and a new year begins, our thoughts turn gratefully to family and friends who have championed RagApple Lassie and without whose support our progress would not be possible.

Please know how much we appreciate each of you and our prayer is that 2011 will bring glorious rainbows, peaceful days, much love and great joy!

Lenna and Frank

P.S.  RagApple Lassie will close at 3:00 pm on Christmas Eve, will be closed on Christmas Day, and will resume our normal ‘daily’ noon to six schedule beginning on December 26th.   Stay tuned as many surprises are planned for this winter and please remember ‘open’ means seven days a week, including New Year’s Day.
