December Amista Friends of the Month Newsletter!

Here at Amista, we like to take the time to honor our Wine Club members as each and every one continue to stay passionate about our wines and we love to hear the stories of sharing with friends and family.

These are Club members who we have special relationships with, and who visit us from the local area to those from other states. Once a month we feature Amista Friends of the Month in our monthly newsletter. For accepting this invitation, they receive additional benefits, like extra savings on wine, food pairings, and other treats during the month. We do this every month, and reach out to Club members asking if they would like to participate. So keep an eye out in your inbox to see if you have been nominated!

For the month of December, we are featuring Gail and Dave who live across the country in Whitehall, Maryland, and who have been members since October of 2013. They are members of our Circle of Friends Club and became members after tasting our wines with their daughter, Sara who became a Club member a year earlier in October of 2012. Sara lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

We here at Amista appreciate their continued passion and loyalty for our wines.

Below is their story!
Sara and her fiance, Chris, and Dave and Gail

Becoming a Member and our Favorite Amista Memory:

Our relationship with Amista Vineyards began through our daughter Sara, who joined in 2012 after visiting the vineyard. When Sara received her Amista wine she began sharing some with us, and we immediately fell in love with the Zinfandel. After a couple years, we decided it was time to stop getting our favorite wine from Sara, and join to get our own wine from Amista.  We joined the Circle of Friends Red only Club, and look forward to our shipment twice a year.  In October 2017, we planned a trip to visit Amista for the fall dinner; however, we had to cancel due to the fires in the area. Two years later (this year), we rescheduled our trip for early November to visit with Sara and her fiance, Chris Ward, and the Kincade fire forced us to cancel again. We will eventually get to visit Amista, hopefully soon; however, we will pick a different time of year next time. Until then we will enjoy our Amista wines here in Maryland.

Favorite Amista Wine and Food Pairing:

For us, it is a perfect red which is the Zinfandel. It is definitely our favorite wine, and our go to with red meats, tomato pasta sauces, and any other time we just want to enjoy a great glass of red wine. Gail makes a fabulous Eggplant lasagna in the summer with homegrown eggplant and fresh tomato sauce that pairs very well with the Amista Zinfandel.
