Jolly Good: Jones Family Winery Christmas Tea, Santa Visits + Last Minute Gifts

17 Dec

Jonesing (we made a punny joke) for something to do Thursday and over the weekend?  Well, Jones Family Winery in Shelton has got the hook up!  Aside from having their wine available for purchase and tasting, they’ll be holding a holiday tea tasting and cooking demo and have other great events going on, too.

First up is their Special Christmas Tea on 12/19 from 2-4 pm.  For $60 (register here) you’ll get some wine and will learn how to make some awesome tea time classics such as tea sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and cardamom walnut cookies.  And, you can wash it all down with some Harney & Sons Tea.  Pinky in the air while you sip is optional.

Even if you can’t make this cooking classes, there are still other chances to get in that holiday spirit at Jones.  You could take the family out to visit Santa on 12/21 or 12/22 from 10-4 pm. Oh, and after the pics and asking Santa for a brand new PS4 or XBox One, travel into the tasting room and stock up for Christmas dinner!

And, if you’re one of those slackers who waits until the last minute to take care of things, they’ve got you covered too because they’ll be open on Christmas Eve from 9-4 pm so you’ll have plenty of liquid cheer, cider, and Christmas cookies.

Stay warm and full of holiday cheer,

Dan and Kristien

To Do: Friday Farmers’ Markets at Jones Winery All Summer Long

1 Jul

Friday’s already a pretty awesome day, but Jones Family Farms and Winery are making it more awesomerest!  Yeah, this is how it’s going down:

Each Friday from 3:30-6:30, starting July 5 and going until the end of August, there will be a Jones Farmers’ Market right outside their Harvest Kitchen Courtyard.  If you’ve never been to Jones Winery, that’s actually right across from where they have their wine and do the tastings.  There will be all kind of fresh veggies, honey, cheeses, breads, fruits, and other great food from local Connecticut farms available.    The farmers from Jones will be at hand, and you’ll also be able to check out Stone Gardens (you can order a chicken for pick up the following week), and These Things Take Thyme Farm (the best name ever, right?).  Also, you’ll have some freshly made food right from their Harvest Kitchen or from Liquid Lunch!

To kick all of this off, Jones will be turning the July 5 market Red, White, and Blue.  Yes, you know it…the best of their blueberries and their strawberries, ready for you!  There will also be a wine tasting that will help raise money for Spooner House.  Also on hand for the July 5 market will be Bring the Hoopla and Stockbridges with killer cheesecake.

Make sure you take advantage of Jones Winery being open until 6:30 on these days by doing a tasting or getting a glass to start the weekend.  And, even if it’s raining, the market will still go on, but they’ll just move it into their barn.  Cheers.
