New wines being released
Brambleberry is always working on our wine selection, making experimental batches and trying new recipes. We just received released an orange sangria-style wine called the Feisty Friar to join our wildly popular Dimwitted Knave raspberry sangria and a semi-sweet German white blend called Celtic Mist.
If you haven't liked our Facebook page yet, please do. We release our weekend's tasting sheet every week on our Facebook page. Be sure to follow us to stay up to date.
Brambleberry season is here
Brambleberries -- the name given blackberries in Great Britain -- grow in abundance in our woods. Since we had an English/Scottish theme to our bed and breakfast, we named the inn in honor of the prolific fruit. The annual appearance of the rubus allegheniensis is a late July and early August treat. We try to harvest plenty of the berries for eating fresh, making jam, freezing and of course making wine. We feature the berries in our breakfasts, giving guests a true locally grown treat.
The garden harvest has included cucumbers, beans, peas, summer squash and tomatoes. The incredible taste of these fresh vegetables makes all of the work worthwhile.
We also have Scottish Highland cattle for sale as breeding stock or for slaughter. We also have a few Scottish Blackface sheep -- rams and ewes -- for sale as well. Contact us if you're interested.
