Sugarloaf plans Black Friday sale

These scheduling announcements come from the folks at Sugarloaf Mountain Winery in Montgomery County, one of Maryland’s newest wineries.

They will be open the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday), Nov. 28, with special offers. The winery plans to offer hot soup, a half-glass of wine, and 10 percent to 20 percent discounts on all wines, including Stomp. That's a light, off-dry red that is best served chilled. Mulled wine and cider will also be served. Other merchandise will also be available for sale.
The wines for sales will be the 2007 Cabernet Franc, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2006 Chardonnay, 2006 Chardonnay Reserve, 2007 Circe, 2007 Comus, 2006 Comus Reserve, 2006 Merlot, 2007 Rose and 2007 Stomp.

It also plans to participate in a couple of events this weekend. One will be the Argyle Country Club's "Fall Festival," which will run from 7 to 11 this evening. The festival is open to the public. Sugarloaf will offer tastings of its wine. And the other will be the Sugarloaf Crafts Festival at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, 16 Chestnut St., in Gaithersburg, Md. The hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. More than 500 craft designers and fine artists will be there. Sugarloaf will offer tastings of its wine, glasses of wine and bottles of wine for sale. Tickets for Sugarloaf Crafts Festival may be purchased online. For more information, visit the winery Web site.

The winery is planning to close at 3 p.m. Wednesday and, of course, will be closed Thanksgiving Day. That’s a similar schedule to what will happen on Christmas Eve (3 o’clock close) and Christmas (nothing will be stirring).

Finally, Sugarloaf Mountain will begin offering wine “flights” on Fridays from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. A “flight” will consist of 3 half glasses of wine, each paired with an appropriate cheese, fruit or chocolate. The cost is $10.
