It’s Wednesday and the week is speeding by. Not much happening on the winery front. The local vineyards we maintain have all been harvested. We are waiting for our vineyard in Paso Robles to fully ripen so we can conclude harvest by the first week in November.
We are gearing up for our 4th anniversary celebration! Our winery opened in Temecula in a trailer in December 2005, but the main tasting room and facilities opened in October 2006. In celebration of our opening and because it was October, Wiensfest was born.
We throw the best party for our Wine Club members with a Grape Stomp, a Best Dressed Costume challenge, a German Band to dance to and delicious German food to enjoy with excellent beers and wine.
