Lapstone & Hammer is partnering with Philadelphia's newest urban winery, Camuna Cellars to introduce a new wine called Snackstone Fuzz. In honor of this special collaboration we will be hosting our first event in over a year this Sunday, June 6th starting at 3pm, highlighted by a performance from the Snacktime Brass Band featuring our own Brian Nadav playing the oud.
Eli Silins, winemaker at Camuna, describes Snackstone Fuzz as a bubbly, natural and funky Merlot collaboration made from grapes grown just across the river from Philly in the Outer Coastal Plain of New Jersey. Native yeast fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, and naturally sparkling with a small addition of mead made from local honey.
Camuna cellars will have both 750ml and 1.5 liter bottles of Snackstone Fuzz available for purchase at the event, along with a capsule collection featuring 100% cotton tees and totes emblazoned with the label artwork of a caricature of the band on top of a multicolor background in signature Camuna watercolor style. The wine will only be available to purchase at the event and at Camuna Cellars' website, while the capsule will be available both in-store and at lapstoneandhammer.com.
Snackstone Fuzz 750ml - $35
Snackstone Fuzz 1.5 Liter - $85
Snackstone Fuzz Tee - $40
Snackstone Fuzz Tote - $30
Snacktime Brass Band formed during the pandemic as an outdoor performance vehicle for a collective of local musicians who found themselves without venues to play. From busking in parks and on street corners to playing outdoor shows and private events, they've been making booties shake throughout this miserable year. Now they are set to bring the party to this joyous event with the addition of Lapstone's main man Brian Nadav on the oud.
The event will commence at 3pm with a wine tasting leading up to Snacktime's performance at 4:30pm. Camuna Cellars will have a table set up in-store where you can purchase bottles of wine, while the live music performance will take place out in front of the store. Masks are still required to be worn in-store.
