We are getting prepared for quite a few things this week: the Wine Makers Dinner and the Consensus Blending Event! So it has been quite busy around here!
Stephen had to rearrange all of the barrels in the barrel room in order to make way for the tables for both the Wine Makers Dinner and the Consensus Blending Party so our barrel room looks completely different! I am very excited for the dinner because Stephen is going to be releasing the reserve wines to be paired with the menu. We even got an oven and stove top delivered to the vineyard today! I was a little confused when I walked outside and nearly bumped into it.
In regards to the Consensus Blending Event we are prepping for that and I am excited about the wines we are blending with. Apparently it is 3 different lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, and Chambourcin. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot are two of my favorite grapes so I am excited to see which blend wins!
Oh and one more note of interest... Our lake flooded again, this time worst then the last! It was a chilly rainy day yesterday, but today is beautiful! And according to the local weather it is supposed to snow on Saturday... Being from San Diego I still cannot fathom waking up in the morning to snow!
