Labor Day Honor

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.   It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker (Courtesy, United States Department of Labor).

This holiday is our chance, as Americans to truly honor those who have come before us to accomplish so much in developing our country into the greatest nation that the world knows.  We at Labor Wines strongly believe that we would not be where we are without the hard work, dedication and commitment of the American worker.

Labor Day is not only a celebration, but a commitment to our citizens; from the past and those in the future.

As a show of thanks, for the entire week and through Labor Day, we would like to offer Half-Price Shipping for all purchases made this week for our Pinot Noir and Riesling.  Contact Corey directly at corey@laborwines.com or via phone, 702.466.0987 to place your order today.

 

Everything takes Labor to accomplish.  Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction.  Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done.  From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.

Happy Labor Day!

With our favorite holiday, Labor Day, upon us, we wanted to take a moment here at Labor Wines to thank those who have come before us and sacrificed through hard work to build this amazing country. Always observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

This idea of a “workingmen’s holiday” showed the importance of workers’ rights, the heartbeat of our country and is now embraced as a national day of rest, and an unofficial end to Summer.

We would like to raise a glass and salute those who have been before us and the American worker who still uses Labor to get the job done.

Labor Day, a Very Special Day

According to the Federal government, United States Department of Labor, the history of Labor Day is noted below;

 

Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

 

Here at Labor Wines, obviously, Labor Day has significant meaning to us in everything we do. Not only was the original concept of our winery hatched on Labor Day weekend, we truly believe in the American worker and those who contribute to the greater good of our country.  When you look at the credo on our bottle, you know this to be true as well;

 

Everything takes Labor to accomplish.  Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction.  Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done.  From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.

 

This Labor Day holiday, take a moment to stop, think about the sacrifices of others, thank those that you come across who are working and be truly appreciative of those who have come before us to make our United States of America, a better place.  Looking forward to seeing and speaking with each and every one of you soon.

 

Happy Labor Day,

Corey & Dick

Sarabeth’s Wine Dinner – New York City

One of our favorite cities where you can find Labor Wines is New York City.  There are so many reasons why this is the case but for me personally, I spent my childhood years growing up in New Jersey, always going to the ‘City’ for dinners, events and gatherings.  Even more so, we have had the pleasure of having our wines there since the initial 2009 vintage and each month we’re getting a better presence in NYC through our distributor, RAD Grapes.  When the opportunity was presented for me to host a wine dinner at Sarabeth’s Restaurant in Tribeca, I jumped at the chance!

 

One of my dear friends, Angela ‘Mini’ Caudle, serves as general manager and has been a very loyal supporter of Labor Wines since the beginning.  She was thrilled to have us come to NYC for this occasion and visit her restaurant.  In working together, we were able to pair three of our wines with 4 courses from Sarabeth’s culinary team.  The evening’s menu is below, but I can tell you not only was it delicious, but the wines were a perfect pairing for each course.  We were able to feature our 2011 Pinot Blanc, the 2012 Riesling and our 2011 Pinot Noir.  We held the dinner on Tuesday, June 4; traditionally a quieter evening for the restaurant, but with our event, it definitely brought a buzz in that night.

Final Menu, 6.4.13-page-001

 

The dinner was a smashing success with over 50 people attending!  I had the pleasure to welcome well over 35 guests who were friends of Labor and contacts that we have known which made the evening extra special.  I can’t thank enough each and every one who came out to support us on this weeknight.

 

The event would not have happened without the amazing guidance and support courtesy of Mini Caudle, their General Manager who is not only a fantastic industry professional, but an amazing person.  I can’t thank her enough for her support for Labor Wines and dedication to what we do; allowing us to be a part of her restaurant on their wine list and host this wine dinner.  In addition, her staff was fantastic; the service was impeccable and the execution by their culinary team was wonderful.

 

I can’t wait to return soon and hopefully host a second dinner.  We will be sure to keep everyone posted well in advance.  And remember, if you have a story, pictures enjoying Labor or would like to place an order, feel free and share with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

Labor Wines & Local Swine – Recap

 

Ladies & Gentlemen-

 

With the cooling temperatures around the country (well, for the most part), craziness in weather and storms (our hearts and thoughts go out to our East Coast friends as they recover) and sudden inundation of the holidays, we wanted to bring you some cheer and updates from Labor Wines.

 

As many of you know this past Sunday, the 4th, we held our first Labor Wines & Local Swine dinner for the Sunday Italian Feast, held at Nove Italiano restaurant at The Palms in Las Vegas.  We were asked by our good friend, Chef Geno Bernardo to pair up on this event, with the plan to host it quarterly moving forward at his restaurant and hopefully around the country together.  Chef Geno tapped into his farm in Pahrump (45 minutes outside of Vegas) for the two pigs for the dinner and all of the vegetables; quite an accomplishment actually.

 

The evening started with a cocktail reception featuring the very versatile Bacardi Oakheart Rum (quite delicious, if I do say so) and appetizers all pork themed, including chicharrones with pork belly and bacon caramel corn.  As we moved guests into the dining room, after an introduction by Chef Geno, Rachel Wenman of the N9NE Group (owner of the restaurant) and myself, we started the 4-course feast, culminating in the slicing and presentation of the two pigs; one done in a Porchetta style, stuffed with farro and cous cous, the other which was roasted.  As a finale, Geno led guests into the restaurant’s private dining room, where he unveiled the great porkiness culmination of desserts including chocolate covered bacon, bacon brittle, bacon cupcakes and bacon chocolate chip cookies.

 

The night was a hit! We had a wonderful collection of guests join us to kick off the inaugural event and starting making plans to host the second one.  Take a look here for some photos of the event, courtesy of SpyOnVegas.com and here for photos courtesy of the N9NE Group.

 

We can’t wait to do it again and have a chance to embrace the Winter season with our wines and local swine.  Stay tuned and watch out for upcoming details.

 

Additionally, we are almost to the end of our current vintages, anticipating a sell-out of the wines extremely soon.  If you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on these wines, I have a few select cases that I’ve being saving for our friends.  As well, as surprise, we discovered a few cases in our warehouse of our 1st release, the 2009 Pinot Noir and I’m making them available for sale!  These are the last few cases, so if you’d like to have any of the wine from our inaugural vintage, let me know and I can make it happen for you.

 

And, to keep you in the loop, we’re going to have a few surprises upcoming as we enter into 2013 that we hope to share with you soon.  We can’t thank each and every one of you for your support and friendship, as Labor Wines continues to grow each and every day.

 

If you have a story, pictures enjoying Labor or would like to place an order, feel free and share with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

 

 

Cheers,

Corey

What pairs well with our Pinot Blanc?

 

After hearing so many great things about her, I had the pleasure of finally meeting Ms. Courtney Rich, local wine professional and wine blogger in Las Vegas at the tasting we held at Khoury’s Fine Wines a few months back.  It was Courtney who was the cover story (and lovely model, I might add) on the Seven Magazine Wine issue that I was noted in as well, back in March (March 22nd issue).

 

In following up on our meeting, Courtney finally had the chance to professionally taste out our wines and decided to feature our 2011 Pinot Blanc in a post she put together in honor of Labor Day.  I mean, what better wine to select then Labor Wines?!?

 

Here’s the link to Courtney’s latest post on QuitWINEing.com, take a look and let us know what you think – it’s VERY cheeky, but fun and informative at the same time.
If you have a story, pictures enjoying Labor or would like to place an order, feel free and share with us on Facebook or via Twitter.  As well, you can always email me directly, Corey@LaborWines.com or call on cell, 702.466.0987.

James Beard Award-winning Chef, Andy Ricker’s Portland Favorites

Came across a great restaurant suggestion list for Portland, Oregon by Andy Ricker – 2011 James Beard Best Chef Winner earlier today via the James Beard Foundation, find it here.  If you’re fortunate to live in PDX or just taking a trip to the Pacific Northwest, do your best to check out some of these spots.  Additionally, make sure you visit one of Chef Ricker’s restaurants, check out his original Pok Pok and then discover the rest!

I can’t wait to head back to Portland and visit some of the restaurants on his list and enjoy the most amazing wings I ever had, which were at Chef Ricker’s Whiskey Soda Lounge – basically the ‘waiting room’ for Pok Pok.

Additionally, if you’re curious to learn about where Labor is going to be served around the country or interested in purchasing our wines directly feel free to contact me via email, Corey@LaborWines.com or on my cell, 702.466.0987, plus you can always reach us via TwitterFacebook.
