To many, the end of summer means the end of warm weather and lazy summer evenings on the patio. For Gervasi Vineyard (GV), the end of this summer means the introduction of new, unique and limited-run wine and spirits to help usher in the cooler days of fall.
GV will be offering a sweet new wine and two robust spirits this fall. All three products will be available to enjoy at any GV restaurant or for purchase to take home.
“We are releasing three new products at the end of September,” said Andrew Codispoti, director of winemaking and distilling at Gervasi. “Our new products include Barile Sweet Riesling wine, Spiced Rum and Maple Cask Bourbon. These products are limited production, but we do expect availability into the winter season.”
Gervasi’s Newest Wine —Barile Sweet Riesling
The latest products will be an exciting addition to Gervasi’s core lineup of award-winning wines and spirits. The expert wine makers and distillers at GV have been hard at work preparing for the release of these three new libations.
Codispoti said, “The release timing is partly due to the serendipitous maturity and readiness of the product coinciding with the fall season. With summer yielding to autumn, the flavors and versatility of these products can lend to the seasonal transition.
“Barile Sweet Riesling is a late harvest Riesling wine that we have gently aged in bourbon barrels. The Barile Sweet Riesling is a novel approach showcasing the interaction of the rich character of late harvested grapes and the Bourbonesque tones in the barrels.”
Cheers to You – with Spiced Rum or Maple Cask Bourbon
Gervasi is in a unique position to deliver such an exclusive collection of wine and spirits to its guests. Codispoti said Gervasi works hard to deliver extraordinary wines and spirits to satisfy GV’s customers who appreciate products that offer distinctive flavors and expressions.
He said, “The creativity and passion of Gervasi artisanship has resulted in these unique flavor formats. We expect these products to find favor with our customers because of their homage to traditional flavors within a new expression.”
“The Maple Cask Bourbon offers bourbon lovers a new twist linked to the barrel’s legacy maple syrup. The Spiced Rum pays respect to fine aged rums but with the delight of spices merged with a hint of sweetness.”
Harvest Pairings & Release Event
Gervasi is hosting a Harvest Pairings & Release Event on Sunday, September 26 to celebrate the launch of these new products. Attendees will be among the first to enjoy the new wine and spirits paired with small bites in a fall-themed release event in the open-air Pavilion.
The menu includes Spiced Rum paired with a grilled lamb lollipop with smoked mango salsa; Maple Cask Bourbon paired with pecan crusted chicken spiedini with dried cherry sauce; and “Barile” Sweet Riesling aged in Bourbons Barrels, paired with lemon ricotta cake drizzled with lavender honey.
