Todd’s original idea was to give everyone an experience with older wines and mission accomplished! We are having fun, and enjoying sharing experiences with these amazing wines and Todd loves every minute. He will continue the monthly Virtual Tasting with an older vintage at the end of each month throughout the year…the conversation and fun continues!
NEW CRUISE NEWS!!!
The cruise is right around the corner, and just heard from Silverseas that there are a few reservations that have opened up and are AVAILABLE!! So if you’re still interested, this is your chance!
We just sent a boatload of wine (pun intended) out in preparation for some wonderful experiences and ensure there is plenty of great ACVV wines for this epic 10-day cruise from Rome to Venice, departing April 18, 2022…if you’re still interested, our wine travel experts immediately at Food & Wine Trails. We will visit eight beautiful ports across Italy, including an overnight in Sorrento along the Amalfi coast, plus Montenegro and Croatia; see itinerary here. We are excited to experience some amazing off-shore wine excursions and a fabulous post-cruise adventure as well; so plan to stay a few extra days with us in Verona!
Note from Sarah and Todd
Vineyard News…Pruning is finished! Todd has been busy with tractor work…lots of time in the seat, mowing and ripping the vineyard to prepare for spring. We will spend this month working on irrigation lines, trellis wires and making necessary repairs so the vineyard is in optimal working shape and ready for spring growth. We’ll be doing a lot of barrel tasting and make our final blends as we prepare for our Spring bottling.
Todd and Sarah had several successful dinners over the last month and enjoyed skiing in Taos…Sarah learned how to ski for the first time! They just returned from wine events in Dallas, where it was cold but a lot of fun. The next few months are busy with tastings, dinners and special events at the winery and across California…and the April Wine Cruise is fast-approaching!
Our children are all healthy, busy and doing great! We’re excited to celebrate Noah’s graduation from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in early May; he’s already working with some amazing artists and building his music mixing and production business, “Mix Giant” (appropriate since he’s 7’ tall!). We are also thrilled Nellie has accepted a veterinary medicine residency at Oregon State, so she and Spencer will be moving from San Diego in late June to Corvallis to begin this next amazing chapter. We are all blessed and thankful; praying for peace in this crazy world!
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!
Interested in sending gifts, a private group virtual tasting, an in-person tasting at the winery, special event or simply to purchase some of your favorite wine…please call or email us. We are always happy to hear from you!
