Virtual Wine Tastings...

We thought we were done…having our virtual wine tasting shows.  13 in total so far - but you all asked for more when we checked!  So the show will go on, although we are starting to get low on new wines to open – we will never run out of stories and the vineyard keeps changing.  So we have decided to continue with a virtual tasting once a month for July & August -- to stay in touch, have fun together and keep you updated about our vineyard and winery.

The plan is to taste two wines each month.  The package includes the wines for both of the months (four bottles total).

The Pinot Noir blending session was a huge hit and we got so many comments back – thank you.  We decided that it could be fun to do a Syrah+Grenache tasting and blending: Make your own Syrache!  But to make it more current we will be using existing vintages (2016).

In August we will share our barrel select Pinot Noir (Rho) and a first time ever Ampelos Mourvedre – just 32 casess made!

This will be a lot of fun and together we will enjoy how the vineyard is moving fast forward towards harvest.

Peter and I look forward to “see” you at them.
