Day One of the VIntners Festival

We're off in a few minutes for our first public event at Chaine d'Or. Anne and Jerry opened the winery every year for the Vintners Festival and wanted to do that again this year.

We're really not sure what to expect, and how many people might come by. We sent out postcards to everyone on the Chaine d'Or mailing list but didn't really do much in the way of advertising to our mailing list.

We'll largely be featuring Chaine d'Or wines, 04 Cabernet and 06 Chardonnay, but I held back some of our 06 Syrah for this event and a small amount of 06 Haut Tubee. We're really not sure at all how much is going to sell, and what we might have left after the weekend. It's likely to be a long day on my feet and talking with people so I'll try hard to keep water in me and not loose my voice.

I'll try and do an update tonight or tomorrow.

It was great meeting you and Stefania last weekend. Fun times and I enjoyed the cellar talk. I was also surprised how much I liked the Haut Tubee. Looking forward to the next event.

We enjoyed meeting you as well.

I did down sell the Haut Tubee a great deal. It's a blend of four really excellent vineyards, Uvas Creek, Elandrich, Eaglepoint Ranch and our Home. I made it sound like it was leftovers, but it really was four very good lots blended together.
