Who knew there were so many fans out here? We're thrilled at their enthusiasm, and wish we could invite them all into our kitchen to celebrate our 30th anniversary of growing Sangiovese in Napa Valley.
It may be Cabernet Season, but it's time to break out the dry rosé! Good thing we got the 2015 Rosato bottled early...
Have you wondered why we call winter "Cabernet Season" in Napa Valley?
Early winter around here used to be called "Mustard Season" for obvious reasons. However, the mustard bloom, luxuriant in February, doesn't last until spring. The cool weather does; frost season isn't over until early May. It's red wine time, hence Cabernet Season.
Please disregard the selfie -- enjoy today's mustard stand in our 2013 planting of Cabernet!
