HOW TO Get In On All The Perks At Durst

By Copper Williams

Friendships fostered with a tip of the glass; romances rekindled while lounging along the lawns, the playful scent of roses dusting the air.

When visiting the Amada Mia estate, it’s easy to envelope yourself in that royal welcome every guest enjoys. And yet, as Owner and Winemaker Cassandra Durst of Durst Winery & Estate knows so well, there’s more to be had within and throughout.

Fostering Festivities
Durst’s many celebrated wines may be the reason you’ve come for a visit, but the spellbinding journey along the grounds will have you reserving room along the grand lawn, devising the perfect family reunion on the veranda, or arranging time to take part in Durst’s many culinary classes. The Amada Mia estate is proud to provide the ultimate oasis for your big day, too.

“Our guests are treated as though they’re family,” explains Cassandra. “And, as a result of our own daughter hosting her wedding here, it just made sense for our guests to have the opportunity to host their own. Imagine it; dancing on the patio at twilight and dining under the stars, lights stringing aloft and over the grounds.”

Fun for the Whole Family
Yes, we are talking about the whole family here, those with furry paws included! “We’re dog friendly. Our winery dogs, Jackie and Gracie, so look forward to other puppies to play!” smiles Cassandra. Visitors can enjoy a variety of outdoor games during their visit, including corn hole and football, soccer, and yoga balls- ones that children adore playing with. “And, speaking of kids. We keep a great big basket that has toys for children. That way, while the little ones play, parents can relax and have a good time.”

Wine Not?
One of the most enriching experiences entwining everything at Durst Winery & Estate is Club Amada Mia, Durst’s very own wine club. “Our wine club members are the heart of our winery. We love making wine, we love entertaining our wine club members,” Cassandra states. “We have amazing wine club pick-up parties, bringing in live music and food that’s much more than the typical appetizer.”

Guests in Club Amada Mia choose between the Red Club, White Club, or a delectable mixture of the two, offering shipments of two or four bottles every other month. With club-only access to newly released wines, a 20% discount by the bottle or case, and complimentary tastings for you and three others upon each visit, now’s the perfect time to get acquainted with a wine club that caters to your tastes.
