Upcoming Events at Heritage Oak Winery
July 2016
Dear Friends,

Bottling reds got underway last month and this month I've got two weeks blocked off for more filtering and bottling.  I hope to finish up by the first week of August in time to make some room in the barrel room for the coming harvest.  

In the meantime, we've got a few things going on, such as a summer sale and an opportunity to buy wine futures before we finish bottling. See below for details.

Summer Sale

If you are needing some summer time sippers, I've put several of my white wines and two of our popular red blends on sale this month. You can grab up 2014 Pinot Gris, Chenin blanc and Chardonnay, and the 2013 Zinfidelity and Vino Tinto all for $15 per bottle. (Club members pay only $12.)

This event won't last forever, and the Vino Tinto is starting to run out, so if you are interested, better let me know.
