Holidays start with Alfred Eames’ Barrel Tasting, Open House
Just in time for holiday gift-giving and all those festive dinners you have planned, Alfred Eames Cellars in Paonia will be hosting its fifth annual Barrel Tasting and Holiday Open House on Dec. 1-2 from noon to 5 p.m.
Winemaker Eames Petersen said the popular event again will feature special hor d'oeuvres and a performance by the Madrigal Choir along with guest appearances by other local musicians.
"The rest of the choir makes me sound better than I am," Petersen said. "We have a lot of fun and make some pretty good music, too."
Samples from the barrel of this year's vintage will be available as will be samples from the entire line of Alfred Eames wines.
Also, Pam Petersen will have her line of jellies and sauces available.
The event is free and open to the public. Alfred Eames Cellars is located at the Puesta del Sol Vineyards, 11931 4050 Rd., three miles south of Paonia. Directions and information: www.alfredemaescellars.com or call 527-3269.
