WineRelease.com's April 15, 2015 Monthly Newsletter.

Greetings from WineRelease.com, now 2,085 winery listings strong.

Happy Spring! Over this past month, we’ve spent a few weekends in San Francisco, taking advantage of the great weather. We played tourist one night and stayed at the Hyatt Embarcadero, enjoying a late-night dinner at Gott’s Roadside (which, ironically, is also located in Saint Helena, where you can find us most weekends).

During the past few months in St Helena, our winter garden really took off and we have enjoyed some truly magnificent dinosaur kale, and some great lettuces. We learned the hard way that you really do need to thin carrots (we ended up with greens of over 3-4 feet tall, with short, twisted carrots). The parsley also turned out well.





A few weeks ago, a good friend brought about 30 tomato plants (which she'd grown from seed, most of which we'd gotten at the Kendall Jackson tomato festival) and, with the gorgeous weather, turned it into a day of digging in the dirt, drinking 2011 Steltzner's Stags Leap Martini Clone Cabernet and their 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet, and sharing a charcuterie and cheese plate with friends and family. What a great combination!






And now, onto the wines...
