We have been enjoying (with trepidation) fine spring weather for the past several weeks. Warm sunny days have let the vines swell and bud break has spread throughout the county. El Nino is still on everyone’s mind, however, and most of us look forward to a wet month or so ahead. Another season has begun.
March promises to be an active month. I take off for Atlanta and work the first three days in the month there. Next weekend (March 4 – 6) hails the beginning of the Wine Road’s annual Barrel Tasting. This very popular event goes through the following weekend (March 11 -13), with thousands of wine lovers attending for near and far.
The Barrel Tasting and other Tasting Room events will be without our Tasting Room manager for the next couple of months, as Kaitlyn Callagy began maternity leave this week! Baby Callagy is due mid-March, and we all wait excitedly for Kaitlyn and Patrick’s firstborn.
Our 2016 summer music series – A Little Street Music – has been finalized, and a schedule will be out shortly. We’ve brought back some old friends and have added a few new groups to the program. The talent we will showcase this summer is amazing! Can’t wait.
March and April are particularly good times to visit the Tasting Room. Enjoy the serenity of west county before the summer rush begins, which is earlier and earlier each year. Enjoy our wine, play bocce, bring a picnic – live the good life.
