[Members Only] Fall Pick-Up
Black Birch Vineyard is excited to announce the release of our 2017 Chardonnay ... just in time for our Wine Club fall pick-up! We invite our BBV Wine Club members for an exclusive first taste, paired with cheese and charcuterie, and good company. It's a perfect time to stock up on your favorite wine and get ready for crisp autumn days! The 3 bottle allotment will include 2 bottles of choice from our regular menu as well as our 2017 Chardonnay which has fresh citrus and soft notes of guava and vanilla on the nose and notes of clean citrus, a crunch of almond, and bright acidity on the palette. We decided to go with one style as we found our end product best exemplified a classic French Chardonnay. For those of you clinging to the last days of summer you are sure to love this wine!
