Where Have You Been My Blue-Eyed Son?
Like the vines, we have been relatively dormant wine-wise from the completion of harvest up until the New Year. Like everyone, we spent most of our time at home, utilizing the quarantine to get creative in the kitchen and dive deeply in to landscaping and other ranch beautification activities. I have hauled more rocks around this place than I can count, making borders, paths and planters for a vast array of beautiful, water-conscious plants like Manzanitas, Agaves, Sages and Aloes. We cannot wait to have you back for appointments.
January saw an uptick in the cellar as we blended and bottled four new wines, including the 2018 MCA Cuvèe, the 2019 James Berry Vineyard Rhône blend and two exciting new wines under our California Soul label. These wines are gorgeous and will be released in our spring allocation.
In mid-January we participated in a Wine LA (Ian Blackburn) event called "The Wine Stars of California" where we joined a handful of other producers from around the state to discuss and taste some delicious wines virtually via zoom. We will be participating in another such event on February 26th at 7pm called "Rhone Warriors". While I believe this event is sold out, please do check their Wine LA website for more information.
The big news for January was our massive rain event. The Adams Ranch Vineyard saw nearly 11 inches of rain in just a few days. The vineyard is saturated, the birds are singing and we are excited for this bright new year.
All appointments for tastings are currently on hold but if you are Interested in tasting with us virtually via zoom we are happy to accomodate you. Please email us here to make an appointment.
