DID YOU KNOW. . .that our outstanding Sauvignon Blanc is on sale for $9.25?

I'm not sure how many folks read my newsletter each month but even if it's only one, I'd like to apologize for not completing the interesting article about whether we should be concerned about drinking wine that has had a small amount of sulfites added. Well, if you knew that Jerry locked me down into the old wine cellar and kept passing day old salami sandwiches under the door until I processed some wine you'd think twice about that unfinished article. If you do take a minute to read my newsletter, you'd know that there's always a story here. And this one proved to be quite unsettling and a definite first for me. You see, after all these many years I've developed a technique for scheduling my cellar duties so that I will always have a diverse array of wines for tasting and sale. And since the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival was coming up on the 15th and 16th, I was sure I was covered. Now here's where it get interesting. . . never, never, never have we had so many visitors these last two weeks that every bottle of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, a Merlot blend and, my most popular red of all, Black Bear, were sold out completely! So, I guess you can figure the rest. It's Friday the 14th. I'm all packed to head over to Rhinebeck for the festival tomorrow morning. I have my lovely Cabernet Sauvignon, a "not ready for prime time" Chianti and an assortment of other dry and sweet wines in my truck for Jerry to deliver.

Oh, well, I'll just put a smile on my old wrinkled face and be thankful that he let me out of the cellar into a lovely Fall weekend ready to face the crowds and make as though I intended to only bring two dry reds this season.

Guess where I'll be on Monday morning? Ugh.

By the way, it's not at all harmful to drink a glass of wine a day even if a small amount of sulfites has been added -- it's been done for hundreds of years.
