OWENSBORO, Ky., Nov. 8, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) –- Two years in the making and the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn is now ready to unveil a new sweet red wine that pairs perfectly with its award-winning barbecue. It’s called Pit Master Reserve and it’s produced by the most award-winning Kentucky winery too. It’ll make you swoon at the moon.
“We’ve spent the past two years working to find a winery that we could partner with and we found that partner in Purple Toad Winery,” Patrick Bosley, co-owner of the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn, says. “We’re excited that it’s a local connection. Two Kentucky traditions have come together.”
Pit Master Reserve is produced and bottled in Kentucky. It’s a sweet red wine (four on the sweetness scale) and derived from Purple Toad’s own fruits – Lauren’s Blackberry and Paducah Blue.
The tasting and selection process took a while, but Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn finally found the perfect blend to accompany its hickory-smoked barbecue. It pairs well with their award-winning mutton and pit dip too.
“It’s not a snobby wine, but a country wine that’s fit for the best barbecue around. You won’t hear the symphony play as you sip it, but you may catch a whisper of the banjo or the wail of the fiddle. It’s sure to evoke the echoes of Bill Monroe, Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley singing, ‘Blue Moon of Kentucky’,” Bosley says. “It’s kind of like drinking your granddad’s homemade wine.”
Pit Master Reserve will be distributed by Purple Toad Distributing (270-554-0010) look for it wherever Purple Toad products are carried. It’s also available by the bottle or glass in the dining room at Moonlite-Bar-B-Que Inn.
