|Colleen and Glen invite you to sample their wines
Now available to complement an
already marvelously mouthwatering experience at the Rendezvous Restaurant
is their new house wine. Rendezvous Estates Wine is yet another tasty
enterprise of owners Glen and Colleen Schwendinger.
The couple produced their wines for seven years while
living in Canada. After opening their restaurant on Ambergris Caye, they
saw the need for a locally produced house wine. On a return trip to
Canada they purchased the necessary equipment and supplies to start their
Rendezvous' wine manufacturing process includes
fermenting concentrated grape juice in glass casks for a total of 30 days
before bottling. Once bottled, the wine is stood upright for ten days and
then laid on its side for another ten days to wet the cork. Current
production stands at 600 bottles per month but plans are underway to
double their production to 1200 as a result of increased demand. Because
of this growth, Rendezvous is also projecting an increase in their
employment of workers and is currently looking for experienced sales
representatives across Belize.
When at Rendezvous Restaurant, you may try a
nice Pinot Chardonnay from the Rendezvous Estates Wine list as a nice
addition to the scrumptious Seafood Sour Curry or with Rendezvous'
specially prepared prawns. The delectable Red Zinfandel is very smooth
and a perfect accent to the Thai Pepper Pork. Their next wine production
will include a fine Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. In addition,
Rendezvous has renovated a building on their property to house a formal
wine manufacturing and tasting area. Tours will be available for
retailers upon request.
Described by many as "very drinkable,"
these wines may also be purchased when dining or for pleasure at other
fine establishments including Journey's End, The BoatYard and Fido's.
Rendezvous Estates Wine will be available for wholesale buyers shortly
and businesses may call 3426 for a wine tour and tasting. Before you know
it, you will be able to pick up a bottle to take home when local
supermarkets and stores will be given the opportunity of carrying it for
sale at retail prices.
So make your reservations today for the "Rendezvous
Experience," and sample the "Vineyards of San Pedro" - Rendezvous Estates
