This Year's Pumpkin Festival-Label Wine
Most people who attend the Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival look forward to the famous coastal food as much as the world-class art and fabulous entertainment.
Rounding out the experience, festivalgoers will also have the opportunity to sip and savor exceptional wine, as Half Moon Bay Winery returns as the festival’s official wine sponsor.
Half Moon Bay Winery's Monterey Red Blend is this year's Pumpkin Festival label wine. This commemorative Pumpkin Festival wine is a Red Blend handcrafted from Monterey grapes. Enjoy with grilled meats, burgers, spaghetti & red sauce, and pizza.
The festival will also feature Half Moon Bay Winery's Rosé of Dolcetto, a 2021 Monterey Rosé with flavors and aromas of crushed rose petals, strawberry and watermelon rind with a touch of cranberry and white cherry on the finish. Fresh and crisp, this Rosé can be enjoyed all year-round. The brightness of this Rosé will pair well with salads, shellfish, cheese, chicken or burgers.
Both wines will be available by the glass at two booths hosted by the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau.
The Pumpkin Festival-label Monterey Red Blend will also be available by the bottle (to take home) at the Half Moon Bay Beautification Committee’s Pumpkin Festival merchandise booth.
Half Moon Bay Winery is owned by Joe Cotchett, a longtime Main Street preservationist. “In creating the Half Moon Bay Winery label, we’ve taken the opportunity to make wines that complement the coast’s signature produce and seafood,” says Joe Cotchett. “Visitors will be able to enjoy pairing coastside wine and food while strolling at the festival.”
The Winery is releasing new vintages of Fisherman’s Red, Pinot Noir, Mavericks Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé of Dolcetto. Available in September!
