Four Beaujolais Weekends at Woodlawn

Slack Winery

Wine judges wanted! We would love to hear what you think of our soon to be released wines before we bottle them.

In this third year of vintage releases at Slack Winery, we begin our "Beaujolais tradition" with 4 weekends of previews, samplings and tastings leading directly to one of our favorite annual events, Blessing of the Vines, when you can come to the vineyards at Jubilee, help us bless the vines and take home a selection of new wines. For our lead in to Blessings, Winemaker Tucker Grube-O’Brien has prepared 4 new “Beaujolais primeurs”. Before we send these wines back for final tuning and bottling, we’re asking for your opinion. These next 4 Beaujolais Weekends at Woodlawn are planned so you can help us with the most enjoyable aspect of winemaking as we consider such gustatory details as which barrels to blend, and how much more touch up each wine’s nose, acidity, brightness, sugar, color, etc., need. We’ll premier a different wine each weekend. On the first weekend (Friday – Sunday, March 28th -30th ) we debut our new Black Drum Red. Made from 2013 wines and blended with some aged wines that have been maturing since 2012, we are finally ready to release a limited BDR. This is no imitation of the long sold-out 2010 release, but proves to be a deep, smoky red reminiscent of the limited run “Havana Cab” from 2012. We will have our usual Slack fun with prizes awarded for correct answers about Black Drums (the fish) from questions drawn from Lauren’s Magic Giant Wine Goblet. You can prepare to win by learning the answers to such trivia questions as: Why do anglers wait a few seconds before setting the hook for Black Drums?; What is the relationship between Black Drums and Puppy Drums?; and How big do these babies get? If you are not on our email list, sign up! Each Wednesday in April we'll get you an update on Slack’s upcoming weekend Beaujolais primeur as we drumroll to our Blessings weekend. This weekend March 28th-30th you can also sample some of Tuck’s Champagne Kolsch as well --- and if you attended SlackFest in November, you’ll see how nicely this fabulous brew has aged.

We go where the music takes us, but, at heart, we're just a rock band, enjoying the ride.
