Whew! Two-thirds over and already it's been one of our busiest Thanksgiving Wine Weekends... ever! It's been so nice to talk to folks... many who haven't visited in a couple years... about our new releases; taste through three years of Pinot Noir; see how much we've expanded.
One thing I'm not sure about... most weekends in the tasting room we only open five or six different wines for tasting. This holiday weekend we opened ALL TWELVE of our current wines! Some people certainly enjoy picking through the list and choosing the wines they want to taste... but I'm getting the sense that lots of visitors, perhaps the ones that are a bit less familiar with wine, are a bit overwhelmed by all the choices. So that's something to think about as we move into the winter season (and the tasting room will be open only by appointment). And if YOU have any thoughts... feel free to share!
