"Marilyn and I wanted to produce our own wines for some time, but we wanted to do something special...
... in May of 2001, we finally visited France's Rhone Valley. It was a magical time. The wines we sampled were amazing, like nothing we'd ever tasted. Oh, we had tried these classic varietals before but never with such vibrancy, such depth of character. These vintages were from small vintners who sell every bottle locally to friends and family. We knew then the type of wines we had to try to make.
We hope when you taste our wines you experience the same revelation we did. Please visit us soon..."

WE ARE CLOSING THE CARMEL VALLEY TASTING ROOM
Yes it's true, all good things must come to an end. Marilyn and I sold the winery property over 2 years ago working hard to reach this point in our lives when we could retire. We had planned to close the end of September but the new tenants made us an offer we could not refuse. The weekend of June 25-26, 2016 will be our last. For members that can't pick up on time don't worry. We will ship to you at no cost. For everyone else please come by and say hello and good-bye, everything will be on sale.
Marilyn and I thank you for your support over the years we have met some wonderfull friends and will miss you. Cheers!
