It’s been a soggy year. A quick check of local weather records indicates that the Greater Dutzow Area has received about 60 inches of precipitation this year–almost 50% more than average. Recently, torrential rains resulted in historic flooding that closed several major roads (SEE NOTE BELOW).
This calls to mind one of our favorite “old sayings” (we’re not certain it’s really very old, but it sure sounds old):
WATER SEPARATES THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD;
WINE UNITES US.
And so, as the waters recede here in Wine Country, and as we approach the New Year, we still fell a little damp as we pull off our waders and sit down and have a glass of wine with friends and loved ones. It’s the end of the Holiday Season, but the Mulled Wine is as tasty as ever and, when served in an “official” Blumenhof Kristkindl Markt boot, still very much in fashion.
It’s also still fashionable to haul off a few cases of your favorites now during our HOLIDAY WINE SALE–all wines are now just $8.88 EACH in any case purchase (Valvin Muscat and Cabernet Sauvignon are limited to 6 bottles per case).
Tomorrow, for New Year’s Eve, we’ll have Happy Hour $3 Dr!nk Spec!als from 1 – 3 pm and live music by Mark Moebeck from 2 – 5 pm. As you probably know, Mark is not only a great musician, he’s also a great entertainer with a terrific sense of humor. Always a good time.
So why not unite with us?
NOTE BELOW: As of December 30, the flood waters are going down and Highway 94 between Dutzow and Augusta is high and dry and open to traffic (however, 94 between Weldon Spring and Klondike Park is closed), Highway 47, which connects Dutzow to Washington, is also open. Highway TT, which heads north from Dutzow toward New Melle, Foristell, and Wentzville, is open as well. The bottom line: all roads that are passable lead to Blumenhof.
