Label of the Month – LotM June

Date: Wed, Jun 23, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

LotM for May

Date: Tue, Jun 8, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Yikes, where did I lose May? After a recent trip to the QFC – Issaquah that carries what remains of our 2007 Kamari Black Label Cabernet Franc, I found a label that inspired me enough to add it to the Label of the Month blog series. However, instead of using that label for May and further begging [...]

Painting the barrels red.

Date: Sun, May 16, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Angela took on a project to decorate the inside and outside of the new winery with wine barrels. Old, grey, weathered barrels wouldn’t do, of course.
