This Year's Pumpkin Festival-Label Wine
Most people who attend the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival look forward to the famous coastal food as much as the world-class art and fabulous entertainment.
Rounding out the experience, festivalgoers will also have the opportunity to sip and savor exceptional wine, as Half Moon Bay Winery returns as the festival’s official wine sponsor.
Half Moon Bay Winery's 2019 Red Blend from the Central Coast is this year's Pumpkin Festival label wine. This wine is a blend of 30% Alicante Bouchet, 30% Petite Verdot, 10% Merlot, 10% Zinfandel, 10% Syrah and 10% Petite Syrah. Flavors of wild blackberries, blueberries, violets and sage with aromas of vanilla, mocha and brambles. Medium plus body with medium tannins followed by a long lingering smooth finish. Enjoy with grilled beef, lamb or chicken, or a hearty pasta.
On the white side, the festival will feature Half Moon Bay Winery's Mavericks, a 2019 Sauvignon Blanc from the Central Coast.
Both wines will be available by the glass at two booths hosted by the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau.
The Pumpkin Festival-label Red Blend will also be available by the bottle (to take home) at the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee’s Pumpkin Festival merchandise booth.
Half Moon Bay Winery is owned by Joe Cotchett, a longtime Main Street preservationist. “In creating the Half Moon Bay Winery label, we’ve taken the opportunity to make wines that complement the coast’s signature produce and seafood,” says Joe Cotchett. “Visitors will be able to enjoy pairing coastside wine and food while strolling at the festival.”
The Winery is releasing new vintages of Fisherman’s Red, Pinot Noir, Mavericks Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé of Dolcetto. Available in September!
