Fleurs de Fete at Carillon Historical Park – Photo Gallery

Not to be outdone by the Royal Wedding, Dayton’s own Fleurs de Fete wine tasting event was the spring social event of the year again this year. Carvers station at the event was the place to be with their braised beef with Capricorn sauce was a great hit. The Carvers team greeted hundreds of guests as the event drew a record crowd this year despite a slightly different venue on the Carillon Park property. The band was great and there was plenty of wine and fellowship. Take a look below at some of the folks that attended the event on a bright and sunny day.

Dayton History is proud to welcome the original “Party in the Park” back to its first home – Carillon Historical Park. Fleurs de Fête was first conceived by two friends, Vail Miller Sr. of Heidelberg Distributing and Mike Frank of Arrow Wine back in 1992. Vail Sr. and Mike wanted to bring wine out of the cellars and to the general public with an outdoor spring gathering. Their novel idea turned into Dayton’s premier wine and food festival, Fleurs de Fête and Carvers is proud to be a part of this special event in the past and again this year.

Bring your friends and family and join the Carvers
team for some great food and wine served on the
lawn at the Carillon Historical park.

Stop by our booth for a free appetizer or dessert
on your next Carvers visit.

The 5th Annual Buckeye Vodka Battle of the Bartenders is Over

No 4Peat for Carvers – A Close 3rd Place: Electric Mule
Although this was not to be the year for the Carvers team, they were by far the most popular location in the building with their nasty (good) rendition of the Moscow Mule with a garnish of blood orange paired with a white Russian cupcake topped with Buckeye Vodka infused White chocolate buttercream – Yummy. The team definitely had the best drink experience with a secret ingredient from Brazil that was offered up first to prepare the pallet – it was a crowd favorite and everyone came back for more. Here are some photos from the event.

 

 

Join the Carvers crowd for the 5th annual Buckeye Vodka’s Battle of the Bartenders at Prime Time Party Rental. Over 10 area bartenders will create their own signature Buckeye Vodka cocktail.

Featured Winery Profile:
For Robert Craig Winery , wine making always begins with the vineyards — more specifically, with our belief in the crucial importance of vineyard location in producing wines of tremendous depth and character. By concentrating on small quantities of wine from distinctive Napa Valley mountain vineyards, we have been able to create wines that reflect the impact of “terror,” or the combination of soils, climate and viticultural characteristics of the growing locale. Our wine making philosophy builds upon the best that the wine growing appellation has to offer. The goal is to let each wine’s special personality and unique qualities shine through.
