Aging Gracefully

On April Fool’s Day Taft Street Winery turned 36 years old. A beautiful day it was indeed – an Easter Sunday with clear skies and temperatures in the high 70’s. We celebrated as we usually do – with good friends, good food, and lots of Taft Street wine.

In the winery Melissa and team are taking a quick breather after bottling up a storm during the month of March. We have begun tasting some of the wines from the 2017 vintage, and it’s heartening to see that 2017 will be known for more than just devastating fires. The wines are delicious across the board!

April will see a fair amount of market visits. Jake recently returned from a successful visit to the New York market; I’m off to Boston next week. David Gast has returned from Louisiana and will tour Southern California and Michigan in the weeks to come.

Closer to home Kaitlyn and crew will participate in the Route 116 Wine Club Appreciation celebration this weekend, April 7 – 8. Two weeks later we will pour our wines at Sebastopol’s annual Apple Blossom Festival. It must be springtime!

The season has begun. Hills are green, skies are blue, weather is warm – join the fun. See you at Taft Street.
