Can I come out yet?

Date: Sat, Nov 1, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

We don't often punish those who work at the winery, but when we do..... we have the perfect place. And yes, parents, it's for rent....! Chantico.

And she said YES!

Okay, this is not official winery blog-ness, but it is exciting news. Our son, Chris, proposed last month to his girlfriend of 6 years (yes, it's about time!) and she said YES!! Chantico to all!

Our wine has legs!

Date: Thu, Oct 30, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Oh, the glamour of the wine business - just ask Gerich! We pressed out another tank of our cabernet yesterday, and as anyone in this line of work (yes, "WORK!") will tell you, the clean-up takes longer than the wine-making. Once the grapes were pressed, the Dieme (aka The Press) had to be cleaned. Gerich drew the short straw. See for yourself! Chantico.

And the winner is....

Date: Tue, Sep 30, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Colleen Riordan of Georgia won this year's Dry T-Shirt Contest with the slogan:
YOU PICKED A VINE TIME TO LEAVE ME LUCILLE. Runner-up Malcolm Roberts of Berkeley, California won the front logo with, "Picked, Pressed and Poured." But we must give a special Honorable Mention to Ed Freis for his prolific entries. Thank you all for following this blog (which, due to harvest, I have been quite remiss in updating). Today was the LAST DAY of sorting grapes. All of our fruit is in, in tanks, fermenting and getting gently pumped-over or punched down (yes, gently!) several times a day. I will keep you posted as we progress through Harvest 2008 - Phase II. Chantico.

Takin' it to the... mountains

Date: Wed, Aug 13, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

We spent the past three days on the outskirts of the town of Chester, which is near Lake Almanor, which is "sort of" near Chico, which is about as close to civilization as you get up that way. Even though it was a mere 48 hours, it was a true get-away. Our friends own a forest service cabin that they have made into their little nirvana. So, 4 1/2 hours after leaving the Napa Valley, we arrived, dressed in style, as you can see! Chantico.
