This week at the winery
Our fans have been asking what is going on at the winery this year. To tell the truth we are not sure at this date. The death of Jim has takin’ a lot of steam out of John. Carol has been a real asset to John and Darin is pitching in but they need a schedule this year’s events and we finally got it with some changes. Until we get Jim’s estate settled we can’t have music at the winery. John doesn’t want to invest that much money on licenses to have music if the winery can’t stay open. As of right now we have lots of wine and hope that things get worked out. So make your plans cause here is the SCHEDULE if it holds up.
Saturday, 1pm, May 7 is Mushroom day. We celebrate Jim and John’s father birthday. He was an avid wild mushroom hunter and John swears his dad could make them grow at his feet. John finds his mushrooms at Mijers. So come on out, enjoy the day, have a bottle with your friends and enjoy the mushroom snacks the winery gang makes for the fun of it. There will be some specials and fun. No coolers or pets
Every Friday after May 7 is bring your own meat and cook it on our heat. It’s a picnic every Friday night; you can make something and put it on the community table and eat off that table or enjoy your own private picnic with a bottle of Wilson wine.
Sunday 1pm, May 21 is kite day. Bring the kids, lawn chairs or a blanket, play croquet, fly a kite or three. It’s nothing but easy living. John with the Randolph Writers will sell BBQ pulled pork and chips while you take it easy and enjoy the country air and blue sky hopefully.
Sunday June 25, Randolph Writers All Day Family Day. The Writers will be selling Smoked pulled pork dinners. There will be for your pleasure, corn hole and croquet. Bring a blanket, kites, Frisbees and any other lawn games and enjoy the day with fresh air and hopefully great weather. No food, no outside alcohol, (it’s against the law), no pets!
Sunday July 31, Randolph Writers All Day Family Day. The Writers will be selling Smoked pulled pork dinners. There will be for your pleasure, corn hole and croquet. Bring a blanket, kites, Frisbees and any other lawn games and enjoy the day with fresh air and hopefully great weather. No food, no outside alcohol, (it’s against the law), no pets!
Hip Sips Saturday August 6, starts at 4 pm brought to you by the Randolph County Cancer Services. A great evening with Art tent and food, and music. Hopefully the music issue will be settled. No food, no outside alcohol, (it’s against the law), no pets!
John on the john Friday August 19, 8pm after most the cooking is done for BYOM. John recaps the year as only he can and pity sake don’t bring the children, because John can get pretty raw and most times the crowd eggs him to be even rawer (if that’s a word)!
September 24, 4 pm, the Modoc Meadows Fall Follies and ham and bean supper. If things work out there will be hay rides, music? Corn bread contest ($50 1st, ,2nd $20, $10 3rd) Ham and bean super 7pm. And other ideas John might thinks of them.
Private Barrel Tasting Saturday October 22 pm, 7pm. This requires reservation with credit card numbers and we don’t take them till after the Follies and we can only seat 40 people. It’s first come first serve. This is a five tasting of wine with matching food. It’s Wilsons in suits and we ask our customers to dress up also. This is a great date night with John handling all the descriptions by himself now that Jim is gone.
Saturday November 5, 1pm, Holiday Open House and cheese cake contest. There will be specials on wines and holiday snacks. A great day to buy your Christmas wines and hang out with the Wilson.
We want to thank all those that have expressed their sorrow to us. John still can find tears talking about running the winery without Jim and things are still up the air and hopefully we will be able to know more about Jim’s estate by then. Stay tuned!
Wilson Wines, feel the country, taste the fun!
