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:

Goodbye, Doug

Jeff’s Corner Hello, Hello, and Howdy I’m going to turn back the clock to New Year’s Eve, 2009. We were at Brian’s house for his annual staff party (the staff was much smaller then), and Brian made an exciting announcement that Doug and Kelly were joining our team in January.   I missed the preface to this and thought, what the crap, Doug and Kelly are the two Health Inspectors in Fredericksburg. In reality, Kelly is Brian’s sister, and Doug his brother-in-law. This began the metamorphosis into what GCV is today. Doug’s job was Operations Manager.
