Winery Open to Public June 16th & 17th for Tasting … & More!
With summer officially just around the corner, this month’s Third Weekend Open House at Martin Ranch Winery will celebrate the beginning of warmer and longer days with a variety of award-winning Thérèse Vineyards and J.D. Hurley wines available for tasting, some barrel tastings of selected wines, June wine specials, and some wonderful vineyard settings for picnics —- all happening over Father’s Day weekend —- Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, 2012, from noon to 5pm both days.
During Father’s Day Weekend, owners and winemakers Thérèse and Dan Martin, along with their friendly and wine-savvy ranch crew, will feature a number of hand-picked J.D. Hurley and Thérèse Vineyards wines for tasting and purchase for the general visiting public and Martin Ranch Wine Club members. There will also be a selection of Wine Specials, chosen and priced for the event and available only those two days at the winery, in addition to a special tasting table for Martin Ranch Wine Club members. Wine Club applications will be accepted for newcomers that wish to take advantage of this special offering, as well as all the benefits of club membership throughout the year.
According to Dan Martin, “Father’s Day Weekends here at the ranch are always particularly popular, especially with our wine club members. Families really enjoy surprising their dads and grand-dads, and even some special uncles, with a short trek to our winery where they can treat their patriarchs to some new wines, hopefully good weather and some memorable moments shared together.”
At the Father’s Day Open House Weekend on June 16th and 17th, visitors will be able to meet owners and winemakers, Thérèse and Dan Martin, barrel taste with Dan Martin, picnic at the crushpad or on the inviting grounds, weather permitting —- in addition to having the opportunity to get an exclusive look at where and how so many award-winners are created by the winemaking couple.
Open House will be on both Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, from noon to 5 p.m. There is a $10 fee for wine tasting each day, refundable with any wine purchase of $20 or more. Martin Ranch Wine Club members are welcomed at no charge both days. Pick-ups of Spring Wine Club Shipments will be available both days. Applications for new wine club memberships are currently being accepted. Wine Club members are always eligible for special wine club-only prices and a variety of club benefits.
