And to the future…

We survived Sunset Stroll last night. Anyone that missed it missed a great block party! We had tons of folks come by and visit with us and the artists admiring the works created from their minds as well as the art of the juice. A perfect mid-summer night’s dream for us!

Now we’re bracing ourselves for next weekend. Blowing Rock is hosting the “Symphony of the Mountains” by the lake at Chetola. Our role is very simple, to find some of the best picnic items for you to take with you to the lake for the evening. We have stocked up on cheeses that are hardy enough to stand up to the event, Lamb Chopper from Cypress Grove is a HUGE sheep’s milk cheese that is reminiscent of a perfectly aged gouda,  Chocolate Stout Cheddar is a light and refreshing cheddar perfect for a summertime picnic by the lake, and there is always piave, the perfect cheese for a wine lover!

As for the wines we’re featuring for the event… a French Muscadet (Petite M)  that is crisp, dry, and refreshing poinsed against any of the Pinot Noir we carry to make a perfectly balanced basket! Blouberg is a light refreshing blend of white grapes from South Africa and I personally think a lightly chilled Malbec is wonderful with cheese and salami.

So, start now at this very moment and plan to be up here in Blowing Rock next Friday afternoon (July 23) to enjoy one of the biggest, bestest, most bad ass events our town has to offer. And as always, come by and say hello… we always like meeting wonderful people when they’re in our little village! As we enjoy the day, the Music and the juice in our glasses, we’ll be certain to lift a glass to salute you – our most prized friends.
