7/25/2011 1:00:00 PM Pillsbury Wine Company releases 2010 vintages
COTTONWOOD -- Pillsbury Wine Company has announced the release of their 2010 wines on July 27-29 and Aug. 4-6 at their Tasting Room in Historic Old Town Cottonwood.
Sam Pillsbury said, "2010 turned out to be possibly the best vintage ever. We have the Monsoon in Arizona, but it barely rained at harvest. We have clean wines with brighter fruit but moderate alcohol levels, producing the food wines I always strive for".
Pillsbury will be available both weekends. He will be telling his story, answering questions, signing bottles and sharing his knowledge of growing grapes in the desert.
Not only does Old Town Cottonwood feature Pillsbury's Tasting Room; Stronghold Tasting Room, another Arizona wine, is also opened for you to tempt your taste buds.
And even more home grown items for patrons to discover on Main St/89A, including Verde Valley Olive Oil; Bonne Lait, cheese and chocolate shop; Crema, with gelatos and sorbets; and Orion, is offering fresh breads and other treats.
Pillsburywine.com is located in Historic Old Town Cottonwood, 1012 N. Main St.
