Ah, the joys of summer! Even with the difficult situation that is currently upon us, the warm weather makes everything a bit better. Have you ever wondered what is going on right now in the vineyards that are growing the grapes that will end up in your wine bottle?
In our family, birthdays are kind of a big deal. Lots of celebration, thoughtful gifts, great food, and of course, some wonderful wine tasting. With the shelter in place order still in effect, celebrating some recent birthdays required more than a little creativity.
Can there ever be too much of a good thing? In the case of wine grapes, probably not, but having supply catch up with demand has some unexpected results!
While sipping on your favorite wine have you ever considered all of the work and expense that went into getting that wine into your glass? Here is a quick look at your wine’s journey:

Like most wine lovers, we tend to accumulate wine. We have bottles of wine everywhere! Living in California, though, means that we need to pamper our wine. As a result, we have a number of wine fridges scattered about. So when we had the opportunity to check out a Newair Premiere Line Fridge, we got very excited!
In just a few weeks a festival with fine wine and great food is returning to the incredible Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Its time to get excited about this year’s Uncorked: SF!
Spend any time at all around wine and wineries and a wine’s “point score” will become a topic of conversation. But what does it mean that a wine has earned a “94 point” score? Here is what is going on.
