On the heels of the holiday hangovers of January, comes February, packed with fun events for sports fans, romantics and patriots. In all the excitement of the Super Bowl, don’t forget your Sweetheart on Valentine’s Day! Plus, it’s a Leap Year, so there’s one extra day in February to cheer on Mother Nature and whatever remains of El Nino!
We’re welcoming the very beneficial rain and hoping for the possibility of above-average rainfall for this year. Pruning is proceeding on schedule and there’s a good green cover crop on the vineyard floor, helpful for erosion control.
We’ve got just the wines you need to restock your wine cellar for the upcoming Super Bowl weekend. Plus we’ve got “High School Sweethearts” and “Prom Night,” the perfect wines to properly celebrate Valentine’s Day, which lands during President’s Day weekend this year.
We’re open President’s Day, so come trade in some Washingtons and Lincolns for hearty fare like the 2012 Merlot and the righteous GSM (Get Some More!!) blend.
