“While cowboy jazz might be a bit of a stretch, folk jazz fits like a glove. A former Marine and proud Montanan, Noah’s country-boy roots are always showing up in his stories and his music.”
The summer is upon us, even though everyone in Moscow or even the entire Palouse area, can agree with me that it doesn’t feel very summer-y lately. But we have been busy indoors here at the winery.
Our new 2012 Palouse Gold Mead is finally back on shelves for all of our Mead Maniacs out there!
We even bottled a new vintage of Huckleberry Honey Mead that is still yet to be released. But I’ll give you the inside scoop–it’s got a little higher alcohol content than the current vintage and an incredible balance between the honey and the Northwest’s beloved huckleberries.
If you “Like” us on Facebook and follow our Twitter (@CmsPrairieWnry) you have been seeing our updates about our IndieGoGo Campaign. If not, what are you waiting for??
We have reached $320 in our fundraising efforts to purchase an in-house label printer but we still are quite far away from our goal and only have 24 days left!!
How about instead of getting your usual coffee tomorrow morning, go to indiegogo.com/camasprairiewinery and donate just $3-$5. Every single dollar counts and the benefits of a new printer are endless!
For example, the new vintage of Huckleberry Honey Mead had an initial alcohol content of 13.8%. IF we had our own label printer, we could easily adjust the alcohol content on our computer and print them the same day. Instead, Jeremy had to go and work his wine maker magic to lower that alcohol percentage and get it to the 12% level because that is what we currently have printed on our hundreds of pre-printed labels. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t enjoy a little extra kick in their glass of Huckleberry Mead?
This month I’ve been very busy revamping Camas Prairie Winery’s internet presence. Be prepared to see a new website complete with an on-site shopping cart and the premier of Vandal Crest Wines!
We are the official producer of Vandal Branded Wines through the Vandal Crest Program. Expect to see these images on our already well-known and best selling wines: Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Go Vandals!
Visit http://www.camasprairiewinery.com/vandalcrestwines for more information. Expected launch date is July 25th!
The Vandal Crest Wines mean a lot to us here at Camas Prairie Winery. As a Vandal Alumni and former student-athlete, I bleed silver and gold! After all, I wouldn’t be here in Moscow if it weren’t for the University of Idaho. We are very excited to deliver our same great wines with iconic images of the state’s land grant institution. – Wine Bar Manager, Charlotte Otero
