We invite you to toast with us over a bottle of
our limited-edition Chateau Montreal / Harry’s Reserve!
“A Toast to 50 Years! Like a fine wine, The Montreal Beach Resort has been aging to perfection for five decades. And after half a century, we know it takes care, love, and lots of people to create a perfect blend. Thank you for being part of our Cape May story. We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate 50 years of Montreal Moments. We raise a glass to you. Cheers!”
This is the inscription that appears on every bottle of “Chateau Montreal/Harry’s Reserve” – the Montreal Beach Resort’s new wine – bottled exclusively to commemorate the Cape May Beachfront Hotel’s golden anniversary celebration in 2016.
We thought that a commemorative wine would be a great way to ‘toast’ the hotel’s 50th birthday, and you – our loyal guests – to join in the celebration!
Only 50 cases of Chateau Montreal will be available for sale in the Wine Cellar – the Montreal Beach Resort’s onsite liquor store – as well as by the glass at Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille – the Cape May Hotel’s onsite restaurant.
The Chardonnay is a homegrown vintage produced by Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery in Rio Grande, NJ. We decided on the Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery’s Chardonnay because it is a wine with lots of character, just like our amazing oceanfront Cape May hotel. It is a great summer drinking wine, with delicious flavor profiles. We bottled 50 cases of our Chardonnay, in honor of our 50th Anniversary, which will be available by the glass at Harry’s Ocean Bar & Grille and available by the bottle in our Cape May hotel’s beachfront liquor store The Wine Cellar for $19.66 – to commemorate our birth year.
We wanted to work with Hawk Haven because they have always been a great supporter of the Montreal Beach Resort and Harry’s. They also make great wine that we think rivals some of California’s finest. Cape May County’s wine industry has taken huge strides in the past 10 years from just a tourist attraction to a very well respected wine producing area, creating award-winning wines.
Like the wine within, the custom label on each bottle has a great deal of character. The label design was a collaborative effort with designers from Hawk Haven. We love the style of old-world wine labels, especially the ones that have renderings of beautiful chateaus. We wanted to recreate that feeling with our property, and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.
Now more inviting than ever, the Montreal Beach Resort celebrates 50 years of memories in 2016. Standing prominently along the Atlantic coastline at Madison Avenue in Cape May, this oceanfront family hotel in Cape May has been lovingly owned and maintained by three generations of the Hirsch Family, who’ve made countless improvements to the beloved vacation resort over five decades.
Chateau Montreal is just one way the resort is celebrating its Golden Anniversary. We will open our doors on April 8, 2016 for our 50th year and invite long-time patrons and new guests to be a part of this special upcoming year. We are planning a list of special events just for the occasion – and special memorabilia and keepsakes, including a fun, fact-filled coffee table book on our history and growth.
