October 2012 Wine Club News

30th Oct 2012 @ 07:27 by Bill

We made it through another California summer and what a summer it was!  The weather was text-book perfect for growing wine grapes and as I write this we are knee deep in a fantastic harvest.  The fruit yield this year is about 30% above expectation and the quality is top-notch so fingers-crossed that our 2012 wines will raise the bar even further.

We have selected some beautiful wines for October paired with delicious recipes and interesting cheeses.   Just click on any wine, cheese or recipe to see more detail on each.
