Jeff’s Corner It’s been a slow news day, as they sometimes say, so I thought I would file through the Jeff’s Corner Archives for a fun story to repost. This one has a hint of truth to it, and dates back to June 5, 2015. It goes like this:
Jeff’s Corner 7-19-19 “I only drink Champagne on two occasions, when I am in love and when I am not.” – Coco Chanel Last Friday night, Kathy and I enjoyed a lovely evening hosted by John Winstead and his fabulous staff at our brand new Heath Sparkling facility. John was gracious enough to open his doors after hours so the old-timers at GCV could check out their state-of-the-art, interactive tasting experience.
Hey, Hey, Hey, It’s Time to Say, Today is Cuvee Day. That’s right, last Saturday we released the new 2018 Cuvee Blanc and we had to bid adieu to our beloved 2017. The ’17 won “Best of Class” last January at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, but fear not mi hearties, the ’18, though a bit different wine, is equally delightful. Before we talk about the new 2018, however, I thought we could clear up some confusion about exactly what it means (at the SFCWC, anyway) to be awarded Best of Class.
Jeff’s Corner Here’s hoping everyone is enjoying a long and safe 4th of July weekend, celebrating the 243rd birthday of what has always been a great nation. Today, I’m going to skip the wine motif and stroll down memory lane and share a 4th of July tradition from our days in Port Aransas.
