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.
Jeff’s Corner Here’s a big Howdy and Hello To our brand new Heath Sparkling Tasting Room which opened its doors yesterday for the very first time! Most of you have already heard lots about it, and many of you have already received your second Heath Sparkling Wine Club allocation. These wines are awesome, and if you want more info check out the website at www.heathsparkling.com. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to check out a little history of champagne and sparkling wine, what makes the two different, and what makes them sparkle.
