Summer is in the air! Come celebrate the beginning of a great season with your friends at 21 Brix Winery during our Summer Fever from 12:00 - 6:00pm on June 1st. Listen to the music of Disco Duck, a 1970’s Retro Band from Buffalo who will bring people out dancing with their renditions of all the classics including Brick House, I Will Survive, and We Are Family. Disco Duck will be at the winery from 1:00 - 4:00pm during the Summer Fever Party.
In addition to Disco Duck performing, 21 Brix Winery will be offering three (3) complimentary tastings per person as well as appetizers and finger foods.
Dig out those 70’s clothes buried in the back of your closet for the party - everyone wearing a costume will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift card!
We like to think of Chautauqua in June as the ‘pre-season’ to the Chautauqua Institution opening. There are plenty of things happening around the county but the busy summer season isn’t upon us….yet.
We’re offering 2 Chautauqua in June classes this year at the winery.
Wine, Seasonings and Food Pairings Class - Friday, June 7 from 7:00 - 9:00pm
- Saturday, June 15 from 11:00am - 1:30pm
Check under the ‘Events’ heading for more information!
Beats at the Brix music series continues May 25th featuring Dave Callaghan and Uptime Jazz. This jazz quartet, based out of Erie, Pa will be performing during this extended hour night from 7:00 - 10:00pm. Weather premitting we will be outside so feel free to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and some munchies. As always there is no cover, however a wine purchase is required. So 21 and over, only please.
So the bad news is, we just sold out of our delicious 2011 Gewürztraminer. The good news is, we just released our delicious 2012 Gewürztraminer! Visit our tasting room today for a sample of the new vintage. The new wine displays hints of light citrus and undertones of crushed caraway seed, flavors of lychee and passion fruit, with a nice smooth finish. The 0.85% residual sugar content balances with the acidity and full flavor of the wine to produce a smooth dry flavorful experience.
Keep an eye on this page for news of other upcoming releases. The 2012 Dry Riesling will be released at the end of March, followed soon after by Marquis, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Rosé and Chardonnay.
See you at the winery!
