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.
First, thanks to all who participated with our "Groundhog Day Discounts". We're able to send a check to Santa Barbara Wildlife Rehab for over $600. Our March "Feel Good Discounts" will benefit the Wild West Wildlife Rehab Center in Amarillo, Texas.
With two trips back to the Wellington Florida farm for horse show watching in February, now it is off to Aspen for a late season ski trip with first family and then a group of friends from Florida, Texas, and California.
We will be relocating our retail operation from 2982 Grand Avenue, Los Olivos to another location closer to the ranch this month. Online orders will continue to be available - contact us for free delivery and shipping options.
