Hi //FirstName//,

As we approach Thanksgiving, we want to express how thankful we are to have such awesome customers and members who continue to support Bent Oak Winery and our mission to bring to you serious wines for serious wine lovers!


In other exciting news, we are going to be on Spectrum News at the 5 o'clock hour on Friday....No virtual Happy Hour as we will be social distancing with our masks on in the Tasting Room to see Mr Winemaker flub his lines on the big TV.

Thanksgiving Dinner Prep Specials

Our specials are designed to pair excellently with your Thanksgiving dinner!  Stop by this weekend to finish out your meal preparation shopping!  Whether it is one of our packages or the individual bottle specials, they all make your Thanksgiving Dinner complete by complimenting your food! 


We recommend the Pinot Noir and Viognier for the classical pairing for Thanksgiving Dinner, as you will notice in our 4- and 6-packs below, or you can get them by the bottle at a great price.  Other combinations that work well are:  Wild Eye & Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon & Viognier, and Wild Eye & Trebbiano to name a few.  Ask your wine ambassador for good pairing ideas for your particular meal.


And for a unique idea this holiday season, why not have a Tasting to Go party?  What a fun way to introduce your friends or family to our award winning wines!
