Tuesday, my brother-in-law Danny, drove a huge truck from central CA (Lodi and Herald) loaded down with about 20 tons of grapes from our vineyards up north. From our original vineyard in Herald (the Heritage Vineyard) he brought Merlot and Primitivo grapes and from the Kidder Vineyard he picked up Sirah grapes. Once he arrived at the winery there was much to be done with the de-stemming and crushing so many of the crew worked until about 9pm to get it done. More grapes will be coming from our Heritage Vineyard later this week. We are definitely in full swing mode.
Yesterday I had the privilege of taking our Event gals out to Palumbo’s Ristorante for a huge Celebration Lunch!!! The gals have been working diligently to increase their sales goal for this year and they’ve succeeded. We had a lovely lunch and great conversation. Thank you ladies for a job well done!! It was my niece Charressa’s birthday so we brought her along too!
From the far end on the left we begin with Jaime, then Carrie, Kenna, around the corner to me and the birthday girl, Charressa.
It was a busy day at Palumbo’s so we weren’t able to chat with Edy and Paul, the owners, but we did catch them in the kitchen helping out with the cooking! Thanks Edy & Paul for a delicious meal!
If you ever have the opportunity to visit Old Town Temecula, you must get to Palumbo’s for a meal. Everything is made with love and attention to detail. I had Charressa take a few pictures of the place because it shows Edy’s casually elegant style (and her love for roosters and Halloween!).
Finally, last but not least we have a great offer to announce.
For our local Wine Club members, we’re offering a case of our 2007 Estate Chardonnay for $127.00, after Club discount, including free shipping. If you live close enough to visit, you can pick up a case or two at the winery also. This offer is good until Sunday, October 3, 2010 as long as supply lasts. Check here for more details. If you’re not a Wine Club member you can still take advantage of the discounted case. The price for non-members is $159.00. Not a bad deal if you enjoy Chardonnay!
Hope to see you this weekend!
That should be a little something to catch you up!
