A long overdue update and Year End wrap up

As the end of 2012 approaches and we find ourselves still alive despite the Mayan’s best intentions, we felt it was past time to update our blog.  We’ve had some changes in staff, which made us realize just how much Charlotte did for us!  (i.e.this blog!)  Along with some new faces, we also have new beers, new glassware, and the launch of the Vandal Crest wine program.  It’s been a busy year for sure!

We were lucky enough to be able to include Stone 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale in our vast selection of Import and  Domestic beers!  What we were able to acquire, we sold out of almost immediately! Sorry if you missed it, but the bottles are cool!

Speaking of beers, have you seen our selection of popular holiday beers?  We have the entire line up of “elf beers” (Bad Elf, Very Bad Elf, Seriously Bad Elf, Criminally Bad Elf, and Insanely Bad Elf).  Or perhaps you would be more interested in a Lump of Coal, or Warm Welcome Nut Brown Ale, all imported from the UK.  We also have a few Norwegian holiday beers, and a cherry Belgium beer.  Basically, it’s a large selection of holiday beers!

We are a winery after all, so we would be remiss not to mention our selection of sparkling wines perfect for holiday gatherings, or a “morning mimosa”, says Alice.  And our extremely popular hot spiced wine!  “Christmas in a Glass”, says Jeremy.  It’s a wonderful ready to serve mulled wine with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.   If you prefer a spiced mead, we have that too!

We have had a great month of cheese sales!  WSU Creamery’s Cougar Gold cheese is available year round at the winery and is perfect for holiday parties, hostess gifts, and gifts in general – and you don’t have to drive to Pullman to get it!

We’ve also introduced new glassware to our retail line up.  We have our traditional stemmed Camas Prairie Winery glasses, but we also now offer stemless wine glasses printed with our new winery logo.  But wait, beer drinkers are not to be forgotten, and they can purchase a hefty pint glass with the new winery logo as well!e year round at the winery, but it’s especially popular this time of year for holiday parties and gifts!

After what felt like an endless season of harvest, crush, fermentation, aging, bottling, labeling, foiling, stocking, and selling…we staged a coup and sent our winemaker home to his mother for Christmas!!!  Jeremy is enjoying time with his family in Colorado, while his wife Heidi is here holding down the fort in Idaho!

We have some fun new stuff coming up for 2013!!  Be on the lookout for some totally redesigned labels, and a new Blackberry Mead being added to our line up!  We can’t wait for you to see and taste the new stuff!  We have some thoughts on other changes and a list of “we hope to’s” for the year, so we’ll see how much we can get done for you.

We appreciate all your support, and wish you all the best for 2013!!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!

August 2012 Updates

August 2012
We can’t believe how quickly July has come and gone!  School will be back in full swing in a few weeks as we slowly say good bye to the summer days.  But we’ve kept ourselves quite busy this past month at Camas Prairie Winery and there is no slowing down!

Vandal Crest Wines

Toward the end of July, we premiered our Vandal Crest Wines!  Working alongside the University of Idaho Office of Alumni Relations, they have selected Camas Prairie Winery as the official producer of the Vandal Crest Wine Program.  We have taken FOUR of our award winning wines and replaced the labels with iconic images of the University of Idaho.  You can view and purchase these wines by visiting www.camasprairiewinery.com/vandalcrestwines today, or stop by our tasting room.  The best part of the Vandal Crest Wine Program is that a percentage of sales goes right back to the University of Idaho to help support student scholarships.

New Vintage Alert!

We’ve got new 2012 vintages of our award winning Huckleberry Honey Mead and Raspberry Honey Mead on shelves now!  Come by the winery for a taste of these freshly made vintages.

New Website: To help make online ordering easier for our customers, we have redesigned our website!  You can now purchase wines directly from us by visiting www.camasprairiewinery.com however, limited shipping is still only available to AK, CA, CO, DC, FL, ID, LA, MO, NE, NV, NH, ND, OH, OR, VA, WA, WV, WY

Live Music Series Feb. 25th featuring Quarter+Life Crisis

Live Music Series Feb. 25th featuring Quarter+Life Crisis

Quarter-Life Crisis returns to Camas Prairie Winery on Saturday, February 25th from 7-9PM!  The best cover band in town, QLC plays great hits of everything from classic rock to modern rock.  

“Despite being from a generation that “bebops to that newfangled rap noise,” we can assure you that our taste in music combines the hearty rock sensibilities of yester-year with the quality entertainment demanded from modern audiences that just want to “shake their booty.”  “We pride ourselves on a selection of songs that provides entertainment for our audience and gives them ‘something to dance to.'”  – Quarter-Life Crisis

 

It’ll be another great night of music, wine and beer! Come on down to Camas Prairie Winery in downtown Moscow.  All Ages Welcome!

Wine Me Up!

We have finally created a wordpress for the winery (as you can clearly see). Sometimes, there’s just too much going on to post it all over Facebook and too time consuming to constantly make website updates. So here we are!

 

Reaching the peak of the holiday season we’ve got great holiday gift ideas at the winery. Wood gift boxes that hold a couple of Christmas beers or the Hot Spiced Wine are perfect for Christmas gifts. Come see for yourself, you’ll be sure to find something you like!

Custom labels? These are very cost effective for numerous people on your list.

 

Stop by and see what’s going on!
