#2. The Parrot Reunion
There is a man who attends the public tasting every year with a parrot on his shoulder. Annie laughed and said she hoped she would see the parrot again… and then all of a sudden there he was! She put this parrot on her shoulder last year and so it was like a reunion.
After a full day of pouring at the SF Chronicle Public Tasting, we went to a restaurant on Pier 39 to celebrate. Some friends we made at the Santa Barbara Food & Wine Festival last year spotted us by the bar and we were delighted to catch up.
✨Vineyard Update: Our vines are getting the spa treatment to rejuvenate! Although the vineyard is dormant this time of year, it is a vital time for them to recharge before the next growing season that is soon to come!
The winter months are the most ideal time for the vines to be pruned. Check out our video below, where Ruben is pruning today to remove the old wood to make room for new growth in the Spring. 🌱
This labor intensive process is critical to the health of the vineyard & preparation for the new fruit in the coming months! 🍇
