The gift of a Christmas tree from this mother / daughter team was much appreciated. It looks so festive in the tasting room.
Much of the work in the vineyard is done until pruning time when the last leaves fall. Until then it’s fun to watch the guys playing pickle ball at the firehouse next door.
Toasted Oak will be open this Monday, Veterans Day, noon to 5:00. We’re offering a 10% discount to veterans and active duty military all weekend. Thank you for your service.
Roger’s long promised Sangiovese blush should be ready for next summer. It’s light, crisp, and fruity, and has such a beautiful color.
The last of our grapes are now picked and safely tucked away inside the cool barn, at various stages of processing. Our thanks to the good people at D’Vine Path, who picked over a ton and a half of beautiful Syrah grapes.
What a great job I have. After the hard work of sorting, weighing, and crushing the grapes, we were able to meet some great visitors in the tasting room over the weekend. Life is good.
It was a great day for picking, nice and cool, and we got enough grapes for almost 40 cases of wine.
Friday was harvest day for our Sangiovese grapes. Bill, Patti, and our friends from D’Vine Path were here to help. We picked and crushed about a ton of beautiful grapes.
Ever wonder what teachers do after the kids go home from school? This group of local teachers stopped by the winery to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Fun group.
What a fun morning we had with students and volunteers of D’Vine Path, an organization that teaches social and workplace skills to autistic adults. We had a winery tour, time to visit, and finished with a toast at the bar. We’re hoping to offer temporary employment to a few of them at harvest time.
