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.

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

Iced Vine....er is it Wine?

Gosh, finding something interesting to write about in the dead of winter is worse than...allergies...a whining baby...25 degree weather...ok, you get my drift.

Our wine is aging well in the tank. I just tried the Merlot today and it is smooth and a gorgeous pinky purple color. I'm really happy with it.

We got a bit of an icestorm here yesterday. Of course, everyone on the Shore was in a panic (BREAD! MILK! LAXATIVES!) but I was warm in my leggins with a glass of Diana's Delight. Life is good.

I did venture out to take the below pic because this front page was looking really sad and boring.

Hope your winter is almost over.
