Release Party—3:00–6:00 p.m­.

Nouveau, the first wine of the season, is traditionally released in France on the third Thursday in November. In keeping with that tradition, Tassel Ridge will be releasing our 2016 Iowa Nouveau on Thursday, November 17. Join Maxwell, Pam, & Amy from KIOA 93.3 at Tassel Ridge Winery for the celebration. We’ll be serving Brat Bite and Pretzel Bite samples along with tastes of the Tassel Ridge 2016 Iowa Nouveau. 

Purchase a bottle of Tassel Ridge 2016 Iowa Nouveau and receive a complimentary limited-edition 2016 Iowa Nouveau poster by Gin Lammert. Gin, who also created the 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 Iowa Nouveau posters, will be at the Winery to sign posters. Come meet the artist and get a signed poster!
