Del Libro (Book Club)

Our next selection is The Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger. It's one of my all time favorites and I talked the Book Club into reading it so I could enjoy it all over again.

Can you believe it snowed yesterday? UGH! AWFUL! The winery was so quiet...we only had a few brave souls wander in even though the snow burned off by noonish. I can't wait for summer so the front porch is full of happy wine-drinking people. I do love a party.

I'm getting ready to send out the newsletter for April so if you haven't signed up for our emails, do so soon! Cheers@costaventosa.com

My feet hurt...

...and my back and my neck and my...ok, enough about me.

We've bottled nearly 200 cases of wine in the last 4 days, whew! That concrete is hard hard hard. But the wine is yummy yummy yummy.

Don't forget:

Book Club tomorrow (May 23)

Volunteer Training on Friday, May 24...join us if you plan on pouring for us this year at the Tasting Room or at the Pemberton Wine Festival later this year. 

Can't wait to uncork the Whaleyville Red and Riddle Farm Riesling! YAY!

Yarn Club

...Yep, it's that time of the month again..Yarn Club on Friday, March 11 from 5:30-7:30 pm...last month we had a blast learning the craft from Stacey and working on our own projects. No experience necessary, just a wish to make something beautiful and unique. 

We're all brining something (a covered dish/something to munch on). Not a whole lot of structure but laughs, scarves & afghans & wine. Join us.

I stink!

I stink! I can't believe it's been a month since I posted last. In my defense, I've: "retired" from a full-time job, did several corporate training sessions (I still do HR stuff), racked the Whaleyville Red and Riddle Farm Riesling, hosted a Big Brothers/Big Sisters Fundraising event, celebrated Wine and Chocolate for a  weekend, rode my horse several times, and finished my Quick Book Pro for 2010.

WHEW!

So if you don’t see me here, check into Facebook. Sometimes I show up there.

Our first fancy schmancy newsletter is coming your way next week…if you’re not on our list, email me at cheers@costaventosa.com and I will put you on.

Hopefully I’ll write soon—before another month goes by.

Select any vine in our adoption areas (Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, or Merlot), and we put a tag on him or her with your name. You can name her, visit her, talk to her, dance with her, sit by her, drink wine with her, and/or take pictures of her. 

Whatever makes you happy, provided it’s during our regular hours and legal! HA!
