Keel & Curley Winery in Florida is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a fun marketing idea. Wine lovers in Georgia and Florida will have the opportunity to purchase a bottle of wine and discover a golden cork. Ten prizes will be awarded to the lucky winners.
The ten customers who find the golden corks will get together on October 10 at the winery to compete for the grand prize. The grand prize is a trip to Napa Valley and includes a train tour to renowned wineries in California. The other winners will receive a Keel and Curley gift basket, a case of wine and certificates.
Keel & Curley Winery in Florida is a unique winery. Originally a blueberry farm, Keel wanted to find a way to use the blueberries still left at the end of the season. After making a small amount of blueberry wine, he kept making more until he had perfected his “recipe.” Today Keel & Curley Winery produces three types of blueberry wines from 100 percent blueberries. They also produce two blackberry wines with 100 percent blackberries.
In addition to these wines they are producing “fusion” wines that are wines made with fruit and grape wines. Examples include Peach Chardonnay, Black Raspberry Merlot and Wild Berry Pinot Noir. Of course, Keel & Curley also produces traditional wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay.
If you enjoy wine and like me have a passion for seeking out new wines, why not check out what Keel & Curley Winery has to offer?
Unfortunately for the majority of the US, the Keel & Curley wines are only available in Georgia and Florida. If you will be in Georgia or Florida why not look for Keel & Curley wines with a golden cork?
PS Whether you enjoy fruit wines or not, a blackberry wine or blueberry wine can make a wonderful dessert. Check out the dessert recipes on the Wine Trail Traveler website.
