It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Can you believe it??? We are at that time of year when we visit family and friends for the holidays. This year has gone by so fast…what did I do all year? Well…since you asked, here is a list of some of the things Passaggio Wines accomplished in the year 2014. I couldn’t have done it without the help of some wonderful friends!!! 

* We teamed up with The Sassy Kitchen to have small intimate wine maker dinners and introduce recipes that pair with Passaggio Wines.

* Introduced new clubs to the Passaggio Wines Clubs

* Visited the Finger Lakes area and found some wonderful wines

* Opened a tasting room on the Historic Sonoma Square

* We tripled our production this year and added a few new varietals to the Passaggio Line up!!

* Joined Vin65 and revamped the Passaggio Website

* Got a puppy!!!

* We met a lot of wonderful new friends!!!

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!!

Can You Believe It?

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!

Bags, Bags, and More Bags

Posted on

Oh my goodness!! That’s all I can say at this point!!

The Passaggio Wines Tasting Room is coming along great. The banquette seating and flooring have been delivered, and the paining will start soon. We also have been discussing wine bottle bags!! Do you know how many choices of bags there are out there? I think we have been talking about bags for weeks (well maybe not weeks but a few days anyway) 😉

And of course we are having some wine while deciding…I must say the Passaggio UNMARKED 2012 Grenache is tasting very good!! I can’t wait for you to taste it in the tasting room!!

What kind of wine bottle bag do you like?
