Wherever there's a problem, there's also a solution. For example, imagine wanting to drink Gregory Graham's award-winning wines by the pool. But not being able to have glassware presents a problem.
Gregory not only makes outstanding wines but has a solution for the poolside wine enjoyment - new wine pouches. These magnum-sized pouches keep wine outstanding for up to six weeks after they're initially opened and what a great wine Gregory's chosen for these pouches.
Just in time for summer Gregory Graham's Rosé has been packaged in convenient wine pouches and are perfect for pool-side enjoyment. Actually, they're great for any place, but we figure that the pool is a terrific place to enjoy a pouch or even a glass of wine.
When I was a kid my mom used to enjoy White Zinfandel from a bargain-brand winery so we would tease her about her "pink wine." Today's Gregory Graham Rosé is very different than that. This wine is a blend of estate-grown Grenache and Syrah wines from Gregory Graham's Crimson Hill vineyard. It's really, really good and quite refreshing and the perfect wine for pool-side.
Recently we visited Gregory Graham's winery and tasted the Rosé and their description of the wine as having a fragrant bouquet of rose petals and cinnamon is accurate but, as with all wines, we hope you taste it for yourself and enjoy it as much as we do.
In honor of this new wine being available at the Featherbed Railroad we have gone a little nuts, naturally. We replaced our pool towels with pink pool towels and even got some pink "pool noodles." Of course we have plenty of break-resistant wine glasses to take to the pool.
Gregory Graham's Rosé is available by the glass for just $5 or by the magnum-sized pouch for just $18.
The cool thing about these pouches is that they also transport well and use up to 80% fewer resources to produce than glass wine bottles. The wine inside remains good for up to six weeks after the pouch is initially opened which is another big plus. Oh, and the Featherbed Railroad is the only place you can buy these pouches of Gregory Graham's Rosé beside at his vineyard and we're open seven days a week.
So during your next visit to the Featherbed Railroad we encourage you to grab a pink pool towel, a pink noodle and head over to our pool with a glass of Gregory Graham's new Rosé. We think you'll find it a refreshing experience that bears repeating.
