Help! Again

When our good friend, Jay, decided to visit from Washington, D.C. little did he know he'd be working so hard this past Saturday. Thanks to all the new people we met, it was a very busy day. Jay ended up working very hard. So, once again we were saved by one of the wonderful people who are in our lives. The bounty of friendship never ceases to amaze me.

Food and Wine

This Friday, November 9, from 5-7pm, I'll be pouring three of our wines to pairings of Thai Food at Vila Thai Cuisine, Main Gate Square, 972 E. University Blvd. , Tucson, AZ 85719 , Phone: 520-903-9777. Kent Callaghan of Callaghan Vineyards will be joining me pouring his wine as well. The cost is $10. I think you'll be surprised at how compatible wine and Thai food can be when in the hands of masters.


This past week-end my two usual tasting room partners, Tim and Kathryn, were not available. Friday I managed until the end of the day when the tasting room was busy and a case of wine needed to go out the door. In walked our friends, Ann and Ron, fellow grape growers, who were more than willing to help out. Saturday Nathan, who has been a volunteer since the second season of planting, again came through and worked the tasting room. Actually, he is so good I went and sat down for a while! Once again, I am thankful for all the wonderful folks I know.
