French Kiss

The fun thing about this movie is that it is not available for streaming anywhere.

Dig through your archives and find your DVD, Blue Ray or Betamax. 

Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan at their best.

It's starting to get busy around here. 

Adams Ranch is picking Syrah on Thursday 9/30.

International Grenache Day

Happy to join MJ @blackwineguy and Sonja @clemcarterwines and @casadumetzwines for #grenacheday supporting @hospicedurhone Link in bio (& details below) for our participating #Grenache #redwine 
- - - - 


The 2016 Rolph Family Vineyard checks in as 100% Grenache that spent 20 months in a mix of new and used French oak barrels. It offers up a pretty bouquet of kirsch and strawberry fruits intermixed with plenty of white pepper, sappy herbs, spring flowers, and incense. It's another ethereal, elegant, beautifully pure red from Mark Adams that has balance, class, complexity, and length.

Wine Release News Up Front:

Wine Club allocation is about to close and we will then open up all of our releases for direct purchase in an updated online store. If you are in the wine club and missed the email, please check your bulk and spam folders. Wine club will always have direct access to certain exclusive wines and experiences, so don't hesitate to inquire about your status. We appreciate your orders.


Lately we've been seeing plenty of smoky, ashy, apocalyptic, orange-hued photos from the western United States. It's as if there is a solar eclipse happening here in Paso Robles as I write this.

No bueno.

With all of the precariousness in the world, perhaps the best thing for us to do is remain steadfast in our positive habits while indulging in the odd guilty pleasure. 

Ciera and I have been working out more regularly, eating healthier, and exploring new wine clubs and wine-oriented streaming education. As much as we miss the regular, personal space of our friends and family, we are able to text, call and video conference with people more often than we did prior to the pandemic.

Which brings me to this invitation.

Many of you probably don't know that my personal cell phone number is on the bottle. Call it! We are absolutely open to hosting remote tastings if you are out of the area. Interested in "sold out" library wines?  We are always finding old treasures in the warehouse. A few months ago we found a case of 2014 G2 Vineyard Tannat. We popped one, it tasted amazing, so we sold a few bottles. We don't keep these wines for sale on the website because there simply aren't enough to go around.

So text, call, email and inquire within. The most fulfilling thing about having a family winery is that we get to make all of the decisions ourselves. We delight in meeting and sharing special wines with those of you who appreciate them the most.

Stay Cool, 
Mark Adams (and Family)

Strange Days Indeed

This morning the fog was so thick we couldn't see the end of the vineyard. It was donwnright chilly. Come afternoon time I was sweatin' bullets. The diurnal temperature shift has consistently been around 50 degrees, which can be fine if it's from the 40's to the 90's, but when the highs are in the triple digits, we definitely see stress in the vines. This weekend we are expecting temperares to be up to 110 in Paso Robles. Verasion is almost complete in the Syrah, but we have several more weeks for the Grenache and Cinsaut. With teperatures like this we can be fooled by spiking sugar levels in the grapes, so we try to wait for consistently cooler temperatures to prevail before calling a pick. This lets the vines "recalibrate" so to speak. The sugars will go back down a few brix and the composure of the vines will become steady. 

If you haven't received your wine allocation email, we are working on that now. Please make sure to add and to your contacts. We have had a few people find our notification emails in the dreaded junk folder. We always send at least three notification emails out prior to running wine club. This also gives everyone an opportunity to customize their orders. 

If you would like an allocation or to schedule an appointment,  please email either of those addresses.

Thanks for visiting.

More next week!
