Wine on weekends
Winery kicks off tasting series

With summer just around the corner, Copper Beech Winery recently kicked off its wine tasting weekends, offering guests free samples on the first and last weekends of every month through November. 

“What we’ll do is offer three types of wine each week we’re open,” Lin L’Heureux, owner and winemaker, said in a phone interview. Each weekend she’ll select three wines to taste, based on what’s in season or what she has a good amount of at the time. For the tasting on Saturday, June 5, and Sunday, June 6, L’Heureux said she’ll most likely have Wild Blue, Fresh Peach and Wicked Strawberry to taste.
“It sounds like June, doesn’t it?” she said. “It’s all about giving people something to enjoy.”
The wine tasting weekends are very casual with no registration or appointment required. The doors will be open for sampling and sales from noon and 5 p.m. so guests can enjoy a tasting and time to chat about the wines and the winemaking process. 
“Some are more interested in the process and balance and others are just interested in how good it tastes,” she said. “I tell people it’s individual. I say, what’s really important is if you taste it and you like it, it’s good wine.” 
While no formal discussion is planned for the laid-back event, L’Heureux is always happy to answer questions and offer suggestions for what to pair with her fruit wines. 
“I really like the local fruits,” she said. “I use local as much as possible, and I think a lot of people immediately assume fruit wines are sweet. … I tend to make most of my wines on the dry side too.” 
L’Heureux said the new Raspberry Rhapsody wine will be released the first week of June. Semi-sweet and made with 100 percent raspberry, the new wine will make an appearance at the June tastings.
