Have you made plans for the long weekend? Well, there are plenty of things for you to enjoy at Moulton Falls Winery and in the surrounding countryside. How about a beautiful drive, for starters, followed by a nice hike along the East Fork of the Lewis River? Then, when you’re all thirsty and hungry, come to Moulton Falls for wine and cider tastings. On Friday evenings from 4 to 9 p.m., the tasting room is introducing new Happy Hour pricing: $5 pints of cider and draught beer and $9 wood-fired pizza. Enjoy Red Mountain grape-made wines, the 2015 Lemberger, Red Blends, Old No. 10, and Siouxon Red. Current ciders on tap include the Gristmill Gold, Yellowstone, Ripsaw Raspberry, and Chelatchie Cherry. Current beers include Transcend IPA, Old Timber Nut Brown Ale, R.I.P. Porter, and Heathen Blonde Ale.
On Friday, May 26, enjoy live folk music from 6 to 9 p.m. Come back on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. to hear the Neil Young tribute band, Harvest Gold. The Moulton Falls Kitchen will be cooking up its tasty wood fired food including its legendary Moulton Melt: deli roast beef and ham piled on house-baked focaccia bread and topped with sautéed veggies and melted white cheddar, served with au jus and a crisp salad, for $9.95.
