Stream Cliff Farm Winery News

We feel that the Winery has been such a nice addition to the existing Herb Farm and Tearoom Restaurant. It is always our heartfelt desire that every time a visitor comes they take away the feeling of a delightful experience. We have a very small, dedicated staff of people who help us and there is a great amount to do here at the Farm.

Our pleasure is that so many people enjoy our handcrafted wines. The selection is broad, from the dry reds such as Iron Hand (Cabernet Sauvignon), Thunderhoof (Cabernet Franc), Rawhide (Pinot Noir), Old Bo (Chambourcin style) and Running Horse Red (Merlot). Dry white wines are Golden Gallop (Sauvignon Blanc), My Dolly (Chardonnay), Spotted Horse (Riesling) and Horsefeathers (Seyval Blanc style) Our winery is unique that we like to pair our wines with various herb flavors which is nice to know when serving wine with meals. For our friends with a sweeter palate there are many fruit wines from which to select. Some of these include our wines made using blackberry (people often tell us it is the best blackberry wine they have tasted), apple, peach, cranberry, black currant, and raspberry. Our Christmas wine (available Oct-Dec) has a beautiful, amusing label and makes a perfect gift. Most of the time, we have 18-20 different wines for which to choose.

New this year we are starting a Wine Club which will offer 10% off on one bottle of wine with each visit and once a month a member will get a free glass of wine punch (value of 12 x $5.00 = $60 plus their 10% off one bottle per visit) The Wine Club will have a reception with our farm family, including free refreshments and special wine and herb recipes to take home. For fee information and to sign up for the Wine Club, go to www.streamclifffarm.com.

The Winery dining room was an existing space which was decorated and finished last season. It has been enjoyed for our winter Candlelight Dinners. The room has a barrel ceiling and the floor has the look of old brick. This charming room will seat about forty people and has such a warm and welcoming atmosphere, just right for an old building that was once a blacksmith shop.

Again this year live music will be presented. The line up is listed here. On the fourth Sunday of each month we will also have an open mic held on the pavilion next to the Winery. If you are a musician and would like to volunteer to play, call the Farm or drop by for more information.

On Aug 30, 5:00-8:00 there will be a BBQ & Blues event at the Winery with Gary Applegate performing. A delicious meal with a menu of a half rack of BBQ Ribs or half BBQ Chicken, Rosemary Rigatoni with Sautéed Vegetables, Summer Green Salad, Chocolate Ganache Cake with Raspberry Sauce and a non-alcoholic beverage. On Oct 4, 5:00-8:00 there will be a BBQ & Bluegrass event with Lost Mill performing. The menu will be: Betty's Cast Iron Cooked BBQ Pork or Half BBQ Chicken, Stream Cliff Farm's Famous Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Dill Slaw and our popular Peach Cobbler with ice cream. Also included is a non-alcoholic beverage. Fee per person is $28.00. Wine available separately.

Last fall Greg, our son, organized some hayrides to the creek to a beautiful, secluded part of the Farm visitors do not see. They were a huge hit! We will be serving cheeses, fruit, salami, olives and herbal bread. Guests will enjoy 2 glasses of wine per individual or one bottle of wine per couple. Each guest will leave with a Stream Cliff Winery glass to commemorate their visit. Fee is $55 per couple or $27.50 per individual. See here for dates, times and to register.

Our winery is unique because we do a lot of pairing with wine and herbs for exceptional flavor. Our farm offers many cooking classes teaching how to use both wines and herbs in food preparation. Please refer to the cooking class section for more information. The winery offers special group events for groups of fifteen or more.
