Vineyards - The Backbone of Wine - Part I: The Trellis

Want to start a vineyard? It is not just the grapes, fermentation and aging. Think about when you look at those beautiful vineyards. What do you see? Most people see only grapevines....I see a bit more Why does a bottle of wine cost that much? There is so much more that goes into a bottle of wine than just fermentation.

Salty stinky cheese. Just add bacon. Yes please. Pass the pinot gris. Stay for hours. #setthetimerforallnight

Look what was under the tree this year....The stüb(ma)li is located in my house this year. Raclette for everyone. Alsatian Pinot Gris(Hugel or Trimbach) or Sancerre (sauvignon blanc from Loire, France-try Delaporte)

A stübli is a room to gather and enjoy swiss specialties like fondue and style of course. Copius amounts of wine are enjoyed and people just take their time eating and enjoying the company of others. #cozy #warm #gherkins #potatoes #raclette

Thursday Thinker pose....A few weeks out from my first harvest and a million things on my mind.

That equates to 8000-10000 pounds of, just a smidge....Readying the tools...

Just the worst news. He was definitely a pioneer on the Peninsula. Such a loss...

Last week we lost our best friend, mentor, and role model. Our hearts are broken at our loss and the devastating loss to his family. Our founding winemaker, Mark Johnson, was a friend to all humanity. He will be deeply missed.
Services are detailed in his obituary found online at:!/Obituary

LIVE! from the vineyard...not #jackopierce or #martha's What happens today in July? #aiméevineyards #thewineassociate

Stainless oak, great value. ripe-fresh-apple with a hint of this

Let's say you are approaching a long weekend. Let's say you are looking for a way to unwin(e)d. Let's say you are looking for a crisp, clean chardonnay that exhibits tropical and fresh, ripe apple notes. Let's say you DON'T like toasty oak and vanilla flavors. Let's say you are looking for a value. Found it. I poured this wine for 4+ years. Great value for under $15

#cheers to the long weekend!!

Is today your Friday? Is tomorrow your Friday? One thing is for certain, you are walking out of that office early (you know it)...where is this summery, holiday weekend taking you? Is there a winery nearby? See you on I-75N....

Tartrates! Two days after posting the below video.... I had a bottle of this wine sent back with the server...because of the crystals on the cork...because the wine was "bad". I am happy to tell you that the makers of Opus One Overture are consistent. Tartrates in mine too...tasting really good right now
