Let the Good Times Roll!

Summer is officially here and it’s almost impossible to ignore the undeniable feelings that come along with it. Long, warm evenings, beg us to sit outside and enjoy this precious time of year, often with a glass of wine and some tasty food. It’s also a wonderful time over at the tasting room, because not only are we busy, but people tend to be in “vacation mode” as I call it and that means they are relaxed and ready to let the good times roll!

The grounds are also particularly beautiful this time of year, and when the heat is bearable, you couldn’t ask for a better place to enjoy a picnic with friends and family. Even the kids love it. While Mom and Dad are busy tasting wine and being “grown ups,” kids get to explore, chase lizards and enjoy our tasty grape juice! It’s really a win win(e) situation.

With July almost half way over, we are starting to feel the proximity to Beaverstock building with every day and our excitement is hard to contain! We couldn’t be more appreciative of the support we’ve gotten over the years and it’s a great feeling to know we will be able to celebrate with many of you! It has really been great talking with people who are as ready as we are for Beaverstock, and I can’t wait to see all of these people at the event and share the experience with them. Maybe we can even share a couple dance moves!

In a completely different realm, our grapes are getting bigger and bigger by the day and if we can avoid the unspeakables (frost, rain, etc) we should be in for a great harvest of 2013! One of my favorite things about this time of year is watching the grapes in our Arbor progress. It seems like every day I walk up the arbor I get a completely different feel because the grapes are growing and constantly casting new shadows and perspectives.

With that, we invite you to come visit us this summer and enjoy this special time of year with us! Bring a picnic, bring the kids and most of all bring good times!

Wine of the Month: Chenin Blanc!

As you may have noticed, we have been featuring the Paso Robles Wine of the Month every month on our website and in our blog. This month, however, the featured wine is a varietal that we do not produce (Grenache Blanc) but we have decided to keep the special rolling and feature our 2011 Chenin Blanc Blind Faith Reserve for the month of July! It has been a lot of fun featuring the variety of wines produced in this area and July is the only month Paso Robles is featuring a wine we do not currently produce.

I am particularly excited to feature our Chenin Blanc because this is the first time in years we have produced the wine on its own and it’s a very refreshing wine! Our Chenin Blanc comes from our Blind Faith Vineyard and the vines are an impressive 35 years old! Grown on their own rootstalk, these are some of the oldest and healthiest vines we farm, giving the wine a lush and full mouth feel.

If you live on the Central Coast or keep up on the weather, then you know we have been in the midst of a serious heat wave, with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for multiple days. For some people the heat is too much to handle but for me the heat means it is truly summer and that means it is time for cold, crisp summer time wines. For me personally, our Chenin Blanc is just that, as it is very easy to drink, very subtle and very crisp. If you’re looking for something a little different to cool you down on these hot days give this wine a try and let me know what you think!

For the month of July we are offering 25% off our Chenin Blanc and free shipping on a case. Wine club members can enjoy 35% off and free shipping on all orders! (Discounts are applied at checkout)

Cheers and keep cool!
