WineRelease.com's August 15, 2016 Monthly Newsletter.

We had friends visit last weekend and we spent a few hours at Foley Johnson playing bocce ball. They have a great court and lawn in the back of the winery.

We ended our Summer in St. Helena and we are now back in San Francisco during the week and back up to St. Helena on weekends. The parking and weather are big adjustments.


And now, onto the wines...
