Hello Wine Friends!

We're beginning to see hopeful signs that winter has past its midway point with more daylight, a couple weeks of warmer than usual temperatures, and the knowledge spring is less than two months away. 

In the winery things are quiet, the wine is relaxing and aging nicely in the tanks, soon we'll be busy bottling again.  Before long, we'll be back in the vineyard doing our early spring grape vine pruning.  There is always something to do in the winery business.  And the best part of all is meeting our friends who visit during this time of the year.  It's especially enjoyable this time of year when we have a few extra moments to really connect with you, talk wine, give tours and be a bit more relaxed than during the summer months.

We'd love to have visit us this winter.  We're open Tuesday-Saturday: 10am to 5pm; Sunday: 1pm to 5pm; and closed Mondays. 

Hope to see you soon!
Ken & Carolyn
