he quarterly wine club selections
may be picked up any time after you receive this announcement. Stop by the tasting room and take a look at the wide variety of wines we have available, or simply go with our recommendations for the quarter. For this quarter, we have settled on three wines from the 2015 vintage that we think you will enjoy:
- 2015 Carnival (our new Rhone blend) ($22.40)
- 2015 Petite Sirah ($22.40)
- 2015 Block 14 Zinfandel ($19.20).
If you are going to be in the area the first Saturday of March, Carmela and I invite you to enjoy our first release party of the new year. The event will start at 1 PM. I've found a new "American" band that I've invited to perform for the event called Ellen Roots and the Harvest. For our meal, we will be having a hot tortellini with pesto, foccacia bread and salad. We hope you will stop by and taste the three recommendations and have a bite to eat.
If you think you'd like to attend, please drop me a line to tell me how many are in your group. A reply to this email will be fine, or you may also call or text me at (209) 986-2763.
Please Note: As we have been doing the last few quarters, we will be charging our Pick-up Members' credit cards in advance of the release party. This helped avoid the long lines at the cash register as members pick up their selection on the day of the party. If you've had any changes to your account, please give us a call.
Look for a detailed description of the wines, along with a video with Jim Curtis's take, in an email going out over the coming week. The discussion will also be available on our
