Don’t think that the Jubilee is in June as in the past!! It is May15!!! Money due to SHW Treasurer by May 5 th. The 2016 SHW Jubilee Wine Competition is Saturday, May 14, 2016, so the Jubilee Picnic will be Sunday, May 15, 2016. 100 PLUS bottles of wine on the table!! Really!

Mark your calendars. The Picnic location will be Judy Pinegar’s Back Yard and Barn as in past years. The actual picnic/BBQ will begin at 1 PM with the main course planned for about 2:30 PM.

For those of you who are new to the event, Judy’s place has 2 ½ acres with room to explore nature in the summer. Some of Judy’s lawn chairs are available, but club members should bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, or whatever if they want to be sure to have a place to sit on the lawn under the trees. The swimming pool also will be open, so bring your suit, hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses (if it is warm enough!). The event is great fun, lawn games will be available, and the party sometimes goes until dark… so plan on making a day of it! Children and guests are welcome!

April 20 Meeting – Bring Jubilee Entries and Two Wine Glasses

Ever wonder what’s causing that funk in your wine?

Come to the April 20 meeting when Matt DiVisconte, manager of Lodi Wine Labs discussed Organoleptic Compounds of Wine.   Your senses will be heightened with the wines Matt’s bringing for us to taste and discuss, and help you identify what’s causing your wines to taste a little off.

Cellar Master Henry will be in Turn Verein’s back parking lot to accept your Jubilee wine entries from 6-7pm.

Did you know that Club wine glasses are for guests and for your use in the rare event something happens to your wine glasses en route to the meeting?  Someone has to take home the cases of used glasses to wash after each meeting, so thanks for helping by bringing your own wine glasses and for this meeting, please bring two.

Your help before and after the meetings is appreciate.  Thanks for enjoying responsibly.

Club Group Buys – Are YOU IN??

This year Craig Brown tried to organize Group Buys for many different varietals of wines.  Going together in one of these groups usually gets you a better price, the grapes brought to the Leader’s home or some location in this area (rather than everybody driving to the source), and lots of comrades helping  do the crush (or crush and press for whites) !! Lots of fun!

But although we has some sign ups (see attached Excel Spreadsheet), and some “leaders” sign up, there are some varietals you wont be able to make because 1) There is no Leader or 2)  not enough people have signed up to make (insufficient quantity ordered) as most  growers want at least 1000 pounds for a buy.

This is your last chance to get in: Please download the attached list and review it.  If you want to join into any of varietals being made (how many pounds do you want?) , or would consent to being a “Leader” of a group buy you want, please call Craig Brown at (916) 203-9961.

Please look for your name or add, the groups with Red Leaders are set, where you see Yellow, people are needed to volunteer or the group won’t go through!!

See “Excel” list of Varietals, Pounds and Leaders: group buys

Only if you cant see the list call Judy Pinegar 916-224-6742
