Wine in A Jug

1 Oct

We recently had guests share a jug of wine from Three Sisters Winery that was very good. Like a growler for beer this was wine in a jug. Please note the information below from the winery that explains this new way of purchasing wine.

Introducing GEORGIA JUG! Perfect for sharing with friends and family, this wine is something special we have dreamed up for the fall and holiday season.  If you enjoy Fat Boy Red or Blood Mountain Red, we think you’ll love GEORGIA JUG. It is an off dry Cabernet-Merlot-Pinot blend with rich color and flavor, perfect for sipping fireside with good friends and your favorite snack food. Or if you just have a hankering for that jug of wine and a deck of cards. GEORGIA JUG is a Mighty Fine Table Wine!

Each GEORGIA JUG purchase includes four limited edition sipping sized glasses while supplies last. And to increase the fun, you personally fill the handsome old-time 3 liter jug from the barrel and then stamp the label with a Face Jug design and apply it to the bottle! But the best part? GEORGIA JUG is “earth friendly and eco-green.” Simply bring the jug back for a refill at a discounted price.

First Solar Powered North Georgia Vineyard

29 Sep


One step closer to sustainable! Georgia vineyard goes solar.

Persimmon Creek Vineyards officially launched solar power efforts today at its winery in Rabun County, Georgia. Co-owners Mary Ann and William “Sonny” Hardman partnered with Atlanta-based Radiance Solar to install an eight-kilowatt solar system on the roof of the winery, trapping energy from the sunlight and converting it into a usable form to power the vineyard’s many functions.

The system is comprised of 36 photovoltaic SunPower panels, the most efficient solar panels in the world, and is expected to offset roughly 11,200 kilowatt-hours per year and approximately 50 percent of the facility’s energy needs with clean, renewable power for the vineyard. Persimmon Creek is the first Georgia vineyard to make an investment in solar energy, and one of very few in the Southeast to incorporate renewable energy into a vineyard’s operations. This distinction demonstrates the Hardman’s commitment to setting the bar for wine making in Georgia and proving that renewable energy is a viable alternative for Georgia residents and businesses.

Persimmon Creek Vineyards is a boutique, family-owned winery located on 110 acres of rolling farmland at 2,100 feet elevation in Clayton, Georgia. Wines, including Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Seyval Blanc, are produced on premise from 100% estate grown grapes, with many processes – picking, crushing, bottling, corking and labeling – done by hand.

Persimmon Creek Wines are served in more than 25 leading restaurants and hotels in Atlanta and the southeast including Bacchanalia, Restaurant Eugene, The Cloister at Sea Island, Bluepointe, Chops Lobster Bar, St. Regis, Woodfire Grill and many more. The wines are available for retail purchase at Sherlock’s Wine Merchants and Whole Foods Markets. Private tastings, educational tours and custom luncheons at the vineyard are available by appointment only. The Cottages at Persimmon Creek Vineyards provide an elegant, relaxing retreat for guests looking to enjoy an extended visit.

More information on the winery is available at theirweb site.
