It seems 2018 is about to end, and none too soon. No offense 2018, but you were kind of a wet blanket. Yet somehow we survived. Wrapping up our 16th year as a winery and our 171st as a farm. We learned a lot, and you know you can’t put a price on an education. With that in mind then, this year was priceless. Yup, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. We close the tasting room for the season in a few short days. Literally. The days are short. We will reopen for 2019 on March 1st. Sue and I are looking forward to a much deserved break. A few weeks of R&R devoted to winking, drinking and forward thinking! We have some great new wines to release in 2019. A new label 2016 Pinot Noir. A new vintage of Peach Train. We are working on a new label for our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2017 first ever Malbec. Thanks again to all of you who have ventured up here on this Coloma hill for a bit of a different perspective. My prediction for 2019? It will be an odd year…and a great one at that! How could it be anything less?
