Half Moon Bay Winery’s 2017 Red Blend from Monterey

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 2017 Red Blend from Monterey is this year's Pumpkin Festival label wine. Honoring the 50th year of the festival, this wine is a blend of 45% Syrah, 30% Cabernet, 15% Merlot and 10% Petite Sirah. Blueberry, plum and cedar flavors combine with mocha and cherry aromas, smooth integrated toasty oak and tannins to give this wine a full body finish. Perfect to enjoy with family and friends at a casual dinner on the patio.

On the white side, the festival will feature Half Moon Bay Winery's Coastal Fog White, a 2017 Sauvignon Blanc from Redwood Valley.  

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’s current releases are two red wines and two white wines: Fisherman’s Red, Pinot Noir, Coastal Fog White, and Mavericks Sauvignon Blanc.

Half Moon Bay Winery uses grapes from well-established vines grown on California’s Central Coast. The wines are available at various coastside retail and restaurant locations:  Cameron’s Inn, Pub & Restaurant; Cunha’s Country Grocery Store; Half Moon Bay Fish Market; and New Leaf Community Market.
