The Accidental Winemaker
I never dreamed that I'd be a winemaker! Several years ago, we came to California with our small herd of horses to escape the Florida summers. While my wife was fully involved with the horses, I became interested in the vineyards around our ranch. Met some good people, got interested. And now, in 2020, we've bottled the first of grapes that I helped source and blend, wines that have my input with the assistance of master winemaker, Steve Clifton.
Hopefully, you will enjoy drinking these wines as much as I've enjoyed making them.
With our tasting room in Los Olivos shut down (again) we're not seeing visitors trying our wines in the shop so we have to wait to hear from them after they're back home. Had to share my favorite comment of the week - "Opened the GSM tonight - OMG.......absolutely phenomenal! It’s like drinking pure silk if there could possibly be such an experience!" Thanks Mie & Mike for the kind words, Rona and I couldn't agree more.
Well, Rona is super excited to be hosting a fun afternoon to celebrate the National Day of the Horse on Sunday, December 13th. Starting at 2p and running until whenever, we'll be hosting local (and some not so local) equestrians with discounts, food, equestrian trivia, and maybe, depending on the mood of the county of Santa Barbara, some live music.
If you are in our database, you'll be receiving a note about the event this weekend. If you are not in the database, sign up to receive discounts! Our Equestrians will receive additional discounts on that day for purchases of bottles of wine; to enjoy on site or to take home.
It should be a fun afternoon for all. Looking forward to it.
