Stowe Calendar of Events


Thu, Apr 30thWine Tasting in the Trapp Family Lodge

We will be tasting new releases of California Zainfandel, for inclusion on our list. Anthony Wagner of G. Housen, will be on hand to discuss the wines and answer any questions. Zinfandel was for many years somewhat of a mystery grape, as far as its origins are concerned. Recent research in Croatia and at the University of California at Davis, using DNA profiling, has proved Zinfandel is a clone of the Croatian variety Crljenak. Zinfandel came to the United States in 1820, when New York nurseryman George Gibbs carried back various cuttings from the Imperial Austrian plant species collection. Over the next two decades, Zinfandel became a populat table grape in the Northeast U.S. Although there are some commercial claims that Agoston Harazsthy brought Zinfandel to California, records show that a Massachusetts nurseryman introduced it there. In either case, Zinfandel is now considered indigenous to California, where it has thrived since the mid-1850's. Zinfandel as a red wine can be made light and fruity, much like French Beaujolais, or lively, complex and age worthy, like Cabernet or Claret. It can also be made into big, ripe, high alcohol style wines that resemble Port. Zinfandel is also a component of most California "jug" wines, since it is one of the most widely planted red wine grapes.

The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread. The wines featured will be:

Four Vines, "Old Vine Cuvee", California 2006

Gnarly Head, "Old Vine Zin", Lodi 2006

Norman Vineyards, "The Monster", Paso Robles 2005

Macauley, Napa Valley 2005

A sign-up sheet will be available at the front desk and there will be a $15.00 fee per person.

Fri, May 1st - Sun, May 3rd 9th Annual Stowe Weekend of Hope

The Stowe Weekend of Hope is an annual forum for education, enlightenment, and recreation for cancer patients and survivors with any type of cancer…and their families. The focus is to inspire, educate, and celebrate the lives of people living with cancer. This unique event addresses the complex challenges and needs of people with cancer at any stage in their disease.

The Stowe Weekend of Hope was founded in 2001 and continues to be a three-day weekend retreat and outreach experience for hundreds of cancer survivors and their families in the restorative environment of Stowe, Vermont. Since its inception, the event has grown locally and nationally to continue to inspire the search for new and innovative research and education in both the traditional and nontraditional cancer treatments and therapies.

6thWine Tasting in the Trapp Family Lodge

We will be tasting new releases of Austrian Reds, for inclusion on our list. Rafael Flores of Artisanal Cellars, will be on hand to discuss the wines and answer any questions. The vineyards in Austria cover 51,000 hectares which, for the most part, lie in the east and southeast of the country. Amongst the wines produced here, white wines unquestionably make up the larger portion-cultivated in 70% of the vineyards. Nevertheless, red wine has come to represent 30% of the vineyards in recent years. Austria has approximately 20,000 small wine producing estates, many of whose financial existence is based on the selling of wine directly on the premises. However, more than half of the wine-growing country features estates with over 5 hectares of vineyards, with most of these highly competitive export-wise. Wine estates regarded as large, according to an international standard (consisting of more than 200 hectares), are rare in Austria. Austrian wines are certainly high in quality. Approximately two thrids of the wines are Qualitatswein, with some of these belinging to the best white, red and sweet wines in the world!

The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread. The wines featured will be:

Burgenland Red  Weingut Michlits 2007

Blaufrankish  Weingut Michlits, Bergenland 2006

Zweigelt  "Dry", Katharina and Helmut Gangl, Burgenland Neusiedlersee 2004

Wagram Cuvee #11 "Trocken", Anton Bauer, Donauland

Wed, May 13thTrapp Family Lodge Wine Tasting: Spanish Reds

We will be tasting new releases of Spanish red wines, for inclusion on our list. Robert Boehme of the Vermont Wine Merchants Company will be on hand to discuss the wines and answer any questions. Spanish winemaking really took off after the Reconquest of Spain by the Catholic Kings. The re-established religious communities and monasteries played a significant role in this process; the monks and friars of various orders worked to recover the winemaking tradition. Wine was vital for their religious rituals, and they also filled their cellars, supplying wine to pilgrims and local taverns. Thus, the vineyards flourished once again in areas surrounding the monasteries and abbeys, and later in other regions. The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread. The wines featured will be:

Tres Ojoa Old vines Garnacha, Calatayud 2007

Olivares Altos de la Hoya" Monastrell, Jumilla 2007

Fri, Jul 10th - Sat, Jul 25th The Clean House Directed by F. Reed Brown Written by Sarah Ruhl Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French This extraordinary new play by an exciting new voice in the American drama was runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize. After its acclaimed run at Yale Repertory Theatre it was done to equal acclaim at several major theatres coast to coast before winding up off Broadway at Lincoln Center, where it had an extended run. The play takes place in what the author describes as "metaphysical Connecticut", mostly in the home of a married couple who are both doctors. They have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who's more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in house-cleaning. Lane, the lady of the house, has an eccentric sister named Virginia who's just nuts about house-cleaning. She and Matilde become fast friends, and Virginia takes over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes. Trouble comes when Lane's husband Charles reveals that he has found his soul mate, or "bashert" in a cancer patient named Anna, on whom he has operated. The actors who play Charles and Anna also play Matilde's parents in a series of dream-like memories, as we learn the story about how they literally killed each other with laughter, giving new meaning to the phrase, "I almost died laughing". This theatrical and wildly funny play is a whimsical and poignant look at class, comedy and the true nature of love.
