arche_apexIn the classic style of French cooking, enjoy a meal of beef bourguignonne, with great wines by a warm fire. We will be serving a four course dinner with an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert, each paired with our award winning wines. Included with the entrée, will be our newest estate dry red blend, Apex. This exclusive wine dinner in the tasting room will be January 27 from 6:30 – 9pm. Apex will not be released until March but you will have the opportunity to enjoy it with the main course and to purchase some as well. Per person cost for this wine dinner event is $75 including tax, $70 for Club 228 members. Seating is very limited. Sold out.

Apex is a blend of 49% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 10% Mourvedre and 9% Roussanne. Light in color and body similar to a classic Pinot Noir although extremely complex. Aged 6 months in TW Boswell Cotes du Rhone medium-plus toast oak barrels. Aromas of blueberry muffin, cocoa bean and mango, with overtones of terroir driven cherry and sweet peppers. Lighter aromas of potpourri, cloves and allspice with hints of Meyer lemon and melon. Well structured, lean tannins throughout the palate with medium-plus acidity and an elevated glycerine level resulting in an exquisite mouth-feel. Very pleasant lingering finish. Limited production.

Arche is 10 Years Old!

October 11, 2017

In 1999, we started our vineyard in the Red River Valley. For years, we sold our grapes to various Texas wineries, then in 2007, we were able to establish our own, christening it Arché, which means “beginning” or “origin”. The word was used in the Greek bible, most notably in Genesis. It has now been 10 years since we took that leap and we want you to celebrate this milestone with us.

Join us this Saturday from noon – 5 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! We’ll have live music from 12:30 – 2:30 by singer/songwriter, David Tribble. From 3 – 5 we will showcase another singer/songwriter, Peyton Stilling. The Too N Fro Cafe will be here from noon until they run out of their delicious fare.

No cover charge, food and wine available for purchase.
