Some people believe that we brought Nancy and Norman Blake to our cellars just because we wanted to hear their lovely sounds. But truth be known, we found out that treating the wine with world class music adds very special qualities to the wine. Oh, we sold a few tickets just so the talented couple would feel more comfortable, having an audience and all. But it would be crazy to think that a $50,000 backdrop of oak winebarrels filled with wine was created just for a top notch live performance.
There’s rumors going around that we may be able to bring the Blake’s as well as others back next year to treat another vintage of wines. No promises, but keep in touch if you’re interesting in joining in on this special part of our winemaking process.
There will also be more pictures (and possibly some video) to follow, as soon as we all get a little rest.
