With blue skies, temperatures in the 70’s, and green fields covered with mustard; it’s hard to believe we are not in the middle of springtime. Historically (and hopefully) we still have a few more rainy days ahead, but the warm weather sure feels good.
It’s back to life as we know it in the wine business. We have bottled our 2017 Russian River Valley Rose of Pinot Noir and our 2017 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Yesterday we introduced the wines to our Tasting Room staff, and the response overwhelmingly positive.
We also got the results from the San Francisco Chronicle 2018 Wine Competition – the largest competition of American wines.
- Taft Street 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Garagistes DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL
- Taft Street 2016 Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc GOLD MEDAL
- Taft Street 2016 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir SILVER MEDAL
- Taft Street 2016 Russian River Valley Chardonnay Garagistes SILVER MEDAL
Not too shabby!
This month in the Tasting Room Kaitlyn and staff will participate with local wineries hosting SWEET 116– a celebration of our locale (Highway#116) and Valentine’s Day. As is tradition for us, we will introduce our 2017 Rose of Pinot Noir to compliment Valentine’s Day offerings. After that, it’s time to start preparations for this year’s Barrel Tasting – held this year on the first two weekends in March.
So things are definitely picking up. Join the fun and stop by for a taste of the new releases and enjoy West County hospitality.
President, Taft Street Winery
