With temperatures about to climb to the 100 degrees mark for the umpteenth time this summer, folks in the winery are starting to get nervous. This feeling deepened when we learned a neighbor is planning to pick for rose next week. With a full schedule of bottling lined up for August, things may get hectic sooner than we hoped.
In the Tasting Room, Kaitlyn and staff are welcoming the summer crowds. August will be a big month for Kaitlyn, as we have three concerts, a Taste Route #116 Wine Club Appreciation event, and the start of her maternity leave!
Speaking of concerts, we are bracing for a huge crowd for the August 13th appearance of local favorites The Pulsators. Later in the month, on August 27th the Michael Capella Band will be seen at Taft Street for the first time. We have the pleasure to present Texan singer/songwriter Jamie Lin Wilson for a special show on Sunday, August 20th. With all these events we just hope the grapes will slow down a bit in their ripening!
So there you have it – a typical crazy summer. The skies remain blue, the picnic area is ready, and the wine is cool. We just need you to complete the picture.
President, Taft Street Winery
