Congratulations are in order . . . .

Dalton Cartwright

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Talent Show on October 27th and and extend a warm round of applause to our first place winner, Dalton Cartwright, who gave us an outstanding performance.  Be sure to catch Dalton’s TV debut on Great Day Live! on WHAS next week.  (exact date to be announced)

Elizabeth Lion's Club

Another round of applause goes to the Elizabeth Lion’s Club and their efforts to raise funds for a new van for the Veterans of Harrison County.  They did an awesome job with the cheese trays during the talent contest and the concert.  (Special Note:  Mark G. did an excellent job making the chocolate cream cheese for the day and did not require the assistance of the Elizabeth Fire Department during his culinary endeavors.)   And a great day of wine sales at the winery helped to augment their “take” for the day.   (Best Vineyards generously donated 20% of all retail sales on 10-27 to the Elizabeth Lion’s Club.)

Muskett Brothers

And, thanks to the Muskett Brothers for the superb blues tunes from 4-8pm.  You guys were terrific.  We hope to see you back at the winery next summer.

Talent Contest, Lion’s Fundraiser, and Blues Concert at the winery on Saturday!

Busy Saturday at the ol’ winery this week. We kick-off the day with a talent contest from 1-3pm with a cash prize for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place and an opportunity for the winner to be on Great Day Live on Oct. 31st. (We’ll be taking contestant forms up until 12:30pm on Saturday.) See below for Talent Contest Entry Form.
After the Talent Show is complete, the Muskett Brothers will take the stage from 4-8pm. This awsome duo is sure to get a few toes tappin’. Visit their website at http://muskettmusic.com/ to listen to a sample of their music. All performances will be held rain, shine or cold. In the event of rain or cool temps, we’ll move everything indoors.
And, while all the talent is performing, the Elizabeth Lion’s Club will be selling cheese trays and other assorted goodies to raise funds for a new van for the Veterans of Harrison County.  Best Vineyards will also be donating 10% of all sales on Saturday to support this worthy cause.  Please join us for a rip roarin good time and support our local Lions Club and Veterans.

Full House will be Rocking at the Vineyard

Flashback to memories of the ’80’s. Join us Saturday for the Full House Band with some rocking tunes ranging from Hank to Hendrix. (Sorry ladies, no John Stamos, regardless of how much yogurt you eat.) Grab your chairs and picnic blankets (or a picnic basket full of doggie treats). Pete, Wayne, Jonathan, Jim & Kevin will be doing a little pickin’ n’ grinning. Sure to be a good time for all.

Busy Weekend Ahead: TV Appearance, Grape Harvest, Wine Sale, Anderson Woods Tasters Fest (Jasper Riverwalk), and a little music for the soul

We just can’t make up our minds this week. So, we’re going to do it all.

Tune in to WAVE 3 early Saturday morning to see Best Vineyards make a special appearance. We’ll be announcing the release of our Spiced Apple wine for the Fall Season.

If watching the telly isn’t your thing, feel free to join us at 8am on Saturday at the winery as we harvest the last acre of grapes in our vineyard.

Then, once we finish up there, we’re going to have a 20% off wine sale on the newly released Spice Apple. This special savings event limited to Saturday and Sunday, 9-22 & 9-23, and only available on purchases made at the winery.

Can’t make it to the winery on Saturday? Visit us in Jasper, IN at the Anderson Woods Taster’s Festival on the Riverwalk. We’ll have the Spiced Apple and maybe a little mulled wine for tasting.

But for those visiting the winery, Turley Richards will be performing his soulful tunes on the deck from 4-8pm.

Chambourcin Harvest on Saturday, September 8th, starting at 7:30am

Join Best Vineyards’ Saturday morning for a day of fun, friendship and grape harvesting. We’ll be harvesting our Chambourcin grapes which are used for our dry red wine (Chambourcin), the Nouveau (released on the 3rd Thursday in November), the Hummingbird Red, Blitz’s Best and the ever popular Strawberry Flame. There are even thoughts this year of trying our hand at an ice style wine.

If you’re interested, please send us an e-mail or call the winery and let us know. The number of people harvesting in the vineyard is going to be capped at 35 people. And, as usual, we’ll have some coffee and breakfast snacks in the morning and a light lunch around noon. Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

At 4pm on Saturday (once the harvest is complete and everything has been cleaned up, hopefully) we will be serenaded by the vocal stylings of Christy Lawrence. She will perform a variety of tunes from pop to classic rock til 8pm. Weather permitting, the concert will be outdoors. In the event of rain, we will move the concert indoors.

Soothing Jazz Tunes This Weekend

Join us this weekend as Arcade takes center stage in our new Gazebo. Listen to the groovy tunes as this awesome trio, Tyrone Wheeler, Craig Wagner and John Walther, bebop from 4-8pm.

Our new Apple Winetini’s and SF spritzers will make their debut this weekend. Stop by and try a sample or three.

It’s Vintage time again!! Time to reveal the New 2012 T-Shirt.

Vintage Indiana is this Saturday.  It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long since the last one but another year has flown by much too quickly.   As I am sitting at work (the one with a paycheck) and printing my tasting sheets for Saturday, I decide to look up the weather forecast in Indy for Vintage.  According to the forecast, it’s going to be in the lower 70’s with a slight breeze.  I’m not sure if the weathermen are just being optimistic or if they really know what there talking about but . . . .    I find it very hard to believe it not going to rain or be 90+ degrees.  So, we’re going to take advantage of the opportunity and have a wine sale while we’re in the park.  Join us in Indianapolis at Military Park from 11-7pm for $10 bottles of Nouveau and Blue Moon while supplies last.  As a special bonus, we will be offering our Mango Pina Colada’s for just $5 per glass.  And, there will be a clearance sale special on our black t-shirts for just $5 each.

And, the NEW 2012 T-shirts are hot off the printing presses.  These gorgeous screen printed shirts go on sale Saturday for $10 each.  Supplies are limited.
