The Answer is ........

Yucca Seed Pod

Although we had some wonderfully creative answers to our "What's This?" contest of last week, Nicole Dee Miller gave the closest answer, saying it is a seed pod.  She wins a free tasting!

Wine makes you young

Well ok, to be truthful it doesn't actually make you young, but don't tell Adele that. She brought her parents Matt and Nicole back to the winery for a second time in her 11 youthful weeks of life, this time to enjoy the lovely Fall weather. Her first visit included bottling the NV Yummy Zinfandel. Although way too young to sample wine (no need to even ask for and ID), she is a big fan of our place and we are of her.

The Winner Is............

Casey Polivchak was the first to give the correct answer to the "What's This?" contest via the blog posting.  Congratulations! 

 Although I do find them a bit creepy I am sure they do a lot of good.  Perhaps Tiffany, our Doctor of Bugology consultant, can enlighten us on why we should appreciate these little buggers! 

Stay tuned for our next "What's This?" contest.  You, too, can win a free tasting.

The Good Grape

Those of you who have been following the 2010 growing season know we lost this year's harvest to a freak hail storm.  I recently wrote about the Syrah's canopy growing back.  The Tempranillo is not only growing a canopy, it is also trying really hard to put out another crop of grapes.  It doesn't matter that the grapes are growing out at the wrong place or that it is the wrong time of year; it is the thought that counts.  Being the traditional good grape of my vineyard family, it just wants to do the right thing.  I know, I'm not supposed to play favorites but I can't help it.  Tempranillo is just such a pleasure to grow.
