We are preparing to bottle our 2012 wines and this time, we will have a new wine to reveal! We will be creating a special blend of the original three varieties that were planted to the vineyard when we purchased it in 2007: Merlot, Syrah, and Grenache. The result is a fun, fruity, blend that will pair perfectly with simple, everyday dishes like pasta and BBQ.
Last weekend, the Record Family came together for our annual Thanksgiving celebration. After enjoying an amazing spread of delicious dishes, we pulled out some barrel samples of the 2012 wines and created the blend. Everyone had a chance to give us feedback and even contribute to the conversation about what to name this special blend.

Putting together the blend!
We are so thankful for each member of this wonderful family and enjoyed sharing this process with them! We can’t wait to bottle the wine and reveal the details of this special blend next year!
