    I’m attending the public tasting on Saturday, and could not be more excited for this event–more so than any of the tastings that I’ve attended in the past few months. The winemakers that will be there are the ones I am most interested in these days, producers both familiar and new to me, all under one roof for exploration and conversation. What more could I ask for? Oh yes, Matthiasson Refosco! Dare I dream?!? Thanks for the great write-up, which made me froth at the mouth a little more waiting for the weekend.

    Thanks Elaine for supporting, for the mention and compliment. This is a pretty heady crowd to be in company with.

    On the TS 2011 supply.
    The 2011 Grenache Blanc (and a few other whites) is sold out. But the 2012 is bottled shortly and released this summer, likely in time for July 4th!

    2011 Pastoral Blanc blend is available in limited quantities.
    2011 Grenache & Syrah are new, small amounts but available.

    Look forward to the public tasting on Saturday.

    Congrats to Hardy Wallace, William Allen, and the others. I just wrote a piece about the Charbono grape. Only 89 acres of this grape exists, all in California. The Napa Valley has 52 acres and a just a handful of wineries that make a limited production of Charbono. Add Charbono to your list of obscure varietals. It is a fun and exciting wine.
