August Wine in the Wind
August 28, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$109.00
Join us for a three hour sail around the Bay sampling wonderful wines: The Estate of Louis Latour, Burgundy with Timothe Cousins. This representative from the winery will introduce you to these special wines. The cruise will be a relaxing sail including 3-oz samples of each of the four wines featured. Along with each wine is a delicious, perfectly paired bite (we call them magnificent morsels) to go with each wine. After the sampling, there will be a small afternoon appetizer buffet that will pair well with any wines you would like to purchase by the glass to enjoy on the rest of your sail. Includes a take-home, boat friendly, wine glass by Go Vino with the Woodwind’s logo on it. Depart Annapolis at 2:00pm, return at 5:00pm.
Price: $109 per person. Maximum 35 guests.

2014 Montagny Premiere Cru. ” La Grande Roche”
These vineyards are nestled high up on the hill in limestone soils with great sun exposure. Also aged in stainless steel but a much more complex terroir driven wine. Paired with Frittata with Pork Belly
