Wine Education

October Wine Club

Jeff’s Corner Hey, Hey, Hey, The much anticipated October wine allocation is finally here (it’s been a long time since June). It will be available for pick-up this weekend as soon as your order is processed, and will be shipped Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week. Wine Club members are typically the first to receive new vintages before they go “public”, and if you’re in the Black Label Club you will get the new ’17 Merlot, and if you’re in the Mixed Club you will enjoy the ’17 Cabernet Trois. Here are the tasting notes I’ve written for these lovely wines, and when they are released on the tasting bar, I’ll post a more comprehensive story on each. Cheers!

Saccharomyces Ellipsoideus (yeast)

Jeff’s Corner Howdy, Hola, and Hello I was in the winery not long ago loving the smell of yeast and fermentation and fresh grape juice when I remembered a story about yeast I wrote a few years ago. So here it is again, one more time. The cute fable at the end was a story I told in my very first Jeff’s Corner, sometime in early 2010:

Vintage Update: 2016 Mosaic

Jeff’s Corner Kath and I were enjoying some porch therapy the other evening and I pulled the cork on a 2016 Mosaic and Great Googly Moogly, it was drinking great! So, I thought why not make some notes and share them with all of you.

Owner’s Club Terroir Tasting Notes

Jeff’s Corner Hopefully we’ll have some new releases to talk about soon, but in the meantime I have a couple more updates to share. A few weeks ago we did our annual tasting of the new 2017 Heath Vineyards wines from our Paso Robles vines. I was “forced” to sit down with Brian, Jennifer, Jason and crew to taste and evaluate the new vintage.
