Let it Breathe – VinoMax Wine Aerator

Posted on Updated on

Let it breathe!!!

These two triple VinoMax Aerators arrived at my house a few weeks back. I was asked to give them a try and write about my experience. I can truly say I was intrigued!

They both worked like a charm, although I preferred the handheld device over the one you actually place in the bottle. They both helped enhance the wine I was drinking for the evening. I would definitely the VinoMax Aerator. It’s also a great conversation piece to have when friends come over for dinner. And I love talking about wine!!

I am keeping the handheld VinoMax on the counter for those wines I think need to breathe. I don’t drink too many heavy reds but when I do this will be an awesome device to have. Check out their website.

Thanks so much for the opportunity VinoMax…

Fast and Furious

Posted on

WOW!! It’s been awhile since my last blog post! I got kinda busy with harvest. What a great looking vintage this year! All of Passaggio’s fruit is in and all I can say is “Whew!”

It seems to me that this harvest was fast and furious. Everything wanted to come in at once. The only thing I had to wait on was the Barbera. Now we can breathe a little while everything gets through fermentation and pressing. I can’t wait to see how this vintage turns out. I believe it’s going to be great.

I brought in Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauv Blanc, Rousanne, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Merlot, and Barbera.

Next up – bottling in February!!

Here we are…in the thick of harvest!!! Phoebe will be 11 weeks old this Thursday!! The Sonoma Tasting Room is doing great! The San Francisco Tasting Room is doing great! The 2014 Harvest looks great! Have I said the word “great” yet…? I have been known to say “awesome” a lot…(thought I’d change it up a bit 😉

Just a bit tired but will keep you posted on this “awesome” harvest (there’s that word) – So far I have brought in Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauv Blanc, Rousanne, and some Pinot Noir. It’s looking good!!!

If you get a chance, stop by the Sonoma Tasting Room. We are pouring some “great” wines. Open today (Sept 15th) from 12-6pm…

 

Cheers to a “great” harvest

One Week and Counting

Posted on

It’s official…the Passaggio Wines tasting room in Sonoma is two weeks old, harvest has kicked off and I’m getting a puppy next week!!

It has been very quiet in the house since Mattie (my Airedale) passed away last year. I miss her every day. There’s a place in my heart for this little girl too. Her name is Phoebe. I named her Phoebe because that was Mattie’s actually first name. Her name was Phoebe Maddison. We called her Mattie.

This little girl will join us on August 28th. She will be flying here, with her breeder, Charlene Johnson. They are flying here all the way from Connecticut. Charlene has been very instrumental in helping my heart mend from loosing Mattie to cancer. Phoebe will now be the new Passaggio Winery dog…as you can tell, she’s been practicing!! 😉

I am sure you will see lots of photos soon!! Stay tuned for the arrival!
