The love of the Grape!
Grape Stomp 2018
Rather, should we call it a Grape Dance? Judged like an Olympic event to bring nations together in a peaceful way to celebrate human achievement?
We're following a different format this year that is more harmonious with the beautiful wine made from your magically transformed grapes.
Here's what's new:
The general stomp in a bin is replaced by having you step inside a half barrel to transform our grapes with your talented tootsies!
The event will take place a few weeks later in the year to give those beautiful berries a bit more time to sweeten.

Cheers to our Aunt Mary Marchino
We celebrate the passing of our great Aunt Mary on November 3, 2017. She was the image behind the caricature on two of our wines - Muscat Love and Blanco. At her birthday party last month she turned 100 years of age. After her son informed me of her passing this morning, I decided to make a special batch of Sangria and dedicate it to her. The Sangria is a blend of the red lees from our 2016 vintage and currently fermenting pinot gris - a first. I greatly appreciate and relish the memories of an innumerable amount of gatherings with her at her home with Uncle Charlie and the fabulously delicious food she cooked from scratch for me and our family for so so many years. Cheers with much love to you Aunt Mary and the best of journey's through those pearly white gates. For any of you coming to our winery Saturday or Sunday, we'll be giving out complimentary samples of this Sangria and toasting Aunt Mary.
