We learned that SHW member Rex Johnston, wine competitor extradordinaire, is hospitalized in a Walnut Creek hospital with serious health issues. He may need help with his wine in the future. If you’d like to contact Rex, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will shortly have met all of our commitments for 2017 touriga (touriga nacional) and we will have about 0.5 ton still available.
The fruit is in excellent condition and bird-netted; the chemistry for the touriga in this field (our “non-Quinta” field) had the following chemistry as of yesterday, 9/22/17: 23.0 brix, pH 3.45, TA 0.56. Good for dry wine now; port-style with additional hang time. Price $1/lb, minimum 250 lbs. We pick.
Contact Wreatha at email@example.com if you are interested in reserving these grapes with small deposit.
Premium Napa Valley Grapes! Amos Olson and Wreatha Duverney are sponsoring a group buy of a Merlot, Cab Fran and Cab Sav from a mature and meticulously maintained Napa Valley vineyard. Last year’s purchase that Amos and Wreatha made produced quality wines consistent with the expectation associated with Napa Valley. There really is a reason for Napa Valley’s prestige and you can proudly put “Napa Valley” on your own wine label.
Recognizing that these grapes are more costly, even small amounts for blending purposes will make a noticeable difference in your wine quality. Taking reservations for:
Cab Franc – estimated 650 pounds available at $2.70 per pound
Cab Sav – estimated 500 pounds available at $2.45 per pound
When the pick is ready, the grapes will be delivered and ready for pickup in Roseville.

My husband and I planned a vineyard a few years ago. There are about a 1000 plants of Zinfandel and Primitivo each. They were pruned back for training this year. Still there may be 1-2 tons of grapes that could be picked. It would be a You-Pick situation with no crusher stemmer, $0.50 per pound. 10 days ago the Primitivo was at 16 brix and the Zin was at 10 brix
Contact Randy Rich at email@example.com or 702.882.0089 OR 505 720-1824.
Randy has 26 well tended vines of cabernet sauvignon and 22 vines of chardonnay both in their 3rd year. Both grapes are nearly ready to harvest especially the Chardonnay.
Brix needs to be measured asap it may be time. Randy is unable to make wine this year and needs to find a good home for his grapes. The vineyard is in the Morgan Creek Golf/Roseville area.
Please contact Randy asap if interested.

I have 200 lbs of Nebbiolo that I was going to purchase as part of the group buy and I am hoping someone can buy those. Can you put something out to the group asking if anyone wants to buy them? It costs $170.00 for the 200 lbs.
