WineRelease.com's February 15, 2019 Monthly Newsletter.

Greetings from WineRelease.

This month we had 75 winery updates and 61 wineries releasing wine.

Lots of rain in the forecast but we need it to avoid a drought. Up in Napa Valley, there is a flash flood warning today and tomorrow. Luckily the vineyards are dormant, so it won’t bother the vines.

Next week our daughter is off school for 'ski week' so we will be spending our time up in St. Helena. I plan to go to the Shafer wine trade event and another wine distributor tasting event at Auberge du Soleil Restaurant/Resort in Rutherford. Both should be great events.


And now, onto the wine releases...
