‘Tis the Season

Posted on

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!!!


Thank you for a wonderful year…

Have a safe and joyous holiday!!!

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

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?



Cheers to bags!!!

Comcast, PG&E, Drywall – oh my!!

Posted on

I was sitting outside the tasting room while the Comcast technician hooked up the internet, telephone, and TV! Good grief, TV?? Oh well it came with the bundle package. The PG&E was hooked up a few weeks ago, and now the drywall is going up.

As I sat outside in front of the tasting room I was admiring the fountain and listening to the water…it was a beautiful day in Sonoma. I can’t wait to open!!!

Empty Space…but not for Long!!

Posted on

We finally got the keys to the Passaggio Wines tasting room space…whoohoooo!!! Here we go!! We have lots of work to do to get ready to open. There will be some changes to the space over the next few weeks so stay tuned to watch the transformation…check out the before photos!!

Remember the last blog post of the choices for the back wall? The previous tenant had a painting hanging in that spot. That wall will be completely covered with one of the choices you saw in the previous post. If you missed it, you can view it here. Would love to hear your thoughts!
