February! What a beautiful month for all of us at the winery to witness the love and appreciation shared between so many people in our community. For starters, we had no idea that by hosting a night out at the winery to knit and crochet would result in more than 100 little hats to be made in support of American Heart Month. Second, our first ever Sweetheart’s dinner sold out so quickly, and lastly, we were absolutely overwhelmed with joy from reading the dozens of love notes and photo messages that were posted in our Valentine’s giveaway. This has been such a wonderful month and we are grateful for all of you for displaying the different ways you care for others.
Little Hats, Big Hearts Night for the American Heart Association
When we learned that the American Heart Association was collecting red hats for newborns to celebrate American Heart Month and raise awareness about heart disease, our winery team and customers knew this would be something special to contribute to. To kick off the month, we invited knitters or crocheters to make red baby hats that were then donated to local newborns in Rock County. We supplied the needles and yarn and had volunteers available to assist with the patterns. Thanks to everyone who provided their creative talents (and wine-drinking skills) to support the cause.
1st Annual Sweetheart’s Dinner at Timber Hill Winery
On Saturday, February 10th, we hosted our first Sweetheart’s Dinner. Over a dozen couples attended the sold-out event where we served guests by candle light with dinner, wine pairings and dessert. The menu was Italian themed and included fresh salad, traditional spaghetti and meatballs or chicken alfredo with garlic bread. Lava Cake and wine were served as dessert. Thanks to everyone who attended. We hope we helped make your Valentine’s holiday a bit more special.
Facebook Love Notes Stole the Hearts of Many
The week of Valentine’s Day we encouraged our community to post photos and captions describing their love for someone special in their lives. Join us as we send some extra special congratulations to our customers, Fran and Bill from Janesville, Wisconsin. Fran’s love note post was randomly chosen as a winner of the giveaway.
The couple now lives in Janesville but found each other in New York. They were married just one month after they met. In her post, Fran said she was so glad she proposed to Bill and that it was love at first sight. Fran and Bill won this package:
- Social Sweets Series Bottle of #SundayFunday Sparkling Wine
- Wine Tasting for Two to Timber Hill Winery
- Box of Chocolate Truffles by Sassy Sweets
- $60 Gift Card to Affinity Massage & Bodywork
Our winemaker and owner Amanda was joined by her husband Matt to announce the winner during an exclusive Valentine’s Day Facebook live post. If you need to feel the love, we invite you to take some time to read the little love note messages.
We can’t wait for March to arrive as we gear up to release a new wine by celebrating “March Meadness” and host several events at the winery, including a Spring Break Bash. See you soon!
