We love when our listeners actually seek our our guest wines and get to taste them. ・・・ Seeing @dane__cellars is barreling a red today, it reminded me I have more of theirs to try. It is not every day we order a six-pack of untried🍷. So far, we are 2 for 2! We had no idea what to expect, so I can’t say we were surprised. But The Lovely Wife™ and I loved this wine. Best described as a Cali Rhône style. Again, not being a pro, I hesitate to offer tasting notes. But I did find someone who was able to explain exactly what I experienced, so check out the website of @thewinestalker and search for Dane Cellars. #Valeria #rhoneblend #gsm And thanks, Bart, @winemakerspod and #sonomacounty #tableten ...

The Wine Makers – Harvest Blackout

EP119: This is the 3rd year in a row that fire has dominated the conversation in October. Thankfully no major fires have started here in Northern California but our power company, PG&E, has decided that when conditions are favorable for a fire they will just shut off the power grid. We sit down and talk about how this affects the harvest and what’s going on out in the vineyards.
