DID YOU KNOW. . . that my webpage has been down since May 1st? Only God knows what happened but I'm now updating it from my husband's computer. How dumb am I that it took 8 days for me to try his and "voila," it worked! Actually, I don't want anyone to think I thought of it myself -- it was he that suggested I try using his computer. Anyway, I can now let everyone know what's going on at the winery.
First off, my beautiful dry and smoky Merlot is on sale. It's the "WINE-OF-THE-MONTH" and it's only $10.79! If you're into Merlot and you live around here, stop in for a quick "taste" to see how different 'cold climate' Merlot is. Remember, I'm never insulted if you have a "taste" and it's just not what you're looking for. What is nice is that you came in and said "hi".
Secondly, I resurrected an Italian-style blend called "Bella Luna". I first made this light and fruity red 5 or 6 years ago. Folks really liked it then and they're definitely liking it now but they also like my Chianti. So, just for now it's "Bella Luna" -- $11.99. And "Black Bear", my Cab/Merlot blend is still the best selling red at $11.99.
Finally, I'm excited to say that the lumber for our new pergola is being cut at this writing. This is really important because last summer it was so brutally hot on our new deck that it was almost impossible to enjoy a bottle of wine and cheese outside. So, I'll keep you up to date on the progress and maybe you'll stop by for a "cool" respite on our deck.
Maryl & Jerry, too!
