With the devastating fires now a not very distant memory, life is slowly returning to early winter routine. The rainy season has started, thankfully without any downpours allowing for mudslides. In the winery, all the wines have fermented, and bottling has started up again. Budgets and plans for 2018 are being addressed.
After a lull in business during the fires, visitors are returning to wine country. We have noted an upsurge in our tasting room over the past couple of weeks. The word has gotten out that all of wine country was not destroyed; in fact, a very small part of the wine business was affected directly. However, those of us in the business are taking an active participation in efforts to help those who suffered losses. The public reaction and outpouring of help have been yet another reminder of how fortunate we are to live in Sonoma County.
As the Holiday Season swings into high gear, a visit to our Tasting Room is a treat. Pick up a few stocking stuffers, provisions for the Holiday table, and enjoy a glass of fine Russian River Valley wine. You’ll be happy you did.
Cheers and Season’s Greetings from all of us at Taft Street Winery!
President, Taft Street
