Tasting: Apple Blossoms, a Walk and Some Wine

Rural Intelligence Food Section Image

On Friday and Saturday, Furnace Brook Winery at Hilltop Orchards introduces its eagerly awaited Dry Riesling at the 6th Annual Apple Blossom Bash.  In 2007, their Johannisberg Riesling won the Gold Metal at the Big E Northeast Wine Competition (having copped the silver just the year before), so hopes for the new wine are running high. 
Rural Intelligence FoodOur advice: first drink in the 30-mile views from the pristine back country trails on this magnificent property, then have your hard-earned share of nibbles and sips. For out-of-towners, orchard-and-vineyard owners John and Julie Vittori also have Garden Gables Inn in Lenox, where they are offering special rates this weekend in honor of the Bash.

Friday & Saturday, May 17 – 18,  1 – 5
508 Canaan Road (aka Route 295), near the intersection of Routes 41 and 20, Richmond 413.698.3301; 800.833.6274
Hiking, live music, hors d’oeuvres, and wine tasting; free.
