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.
So excited to have our newest wines ready, labeled, and licensed! We have a 2020 Grenache Rosè, a 2018 Malbec Reserve, and a Cab Sav blend, our 2018 Claret. Wine club members will be getting a bottle of each to try later this month along with their regular orders!
While I've been spending a good portion of time in Florida, Rona's been back and forth for the horses, ducks, and wine stuff. This week I've been informed, by Rona, that we're doing discounts for National Red Wine Day (40%) Aug 24-31 with code RED40; National Wildlife Day (25% + 25% to charity) September 1-31 WILD2525; National Grandparents Day September 12 GRAND50 (50% off orders and 50% off wine); and GINGER50 on September 23 in appreciation of National Redheads Day for Rona and her Mom and our son Alex.
