Greetings from WineRelease.

Back from a few days in San Sebastian, Spain and two weeks in Italy. We had a great time eating and drinking our way through Florence, Lucca and Tuscany in general.

I received a lunch invite from Seek Winery and visited with friends in May at their Howell Mountain vineyard just a few miles from our house in St. Helena. Gerard and Barbara Sieck, Chicago natives, purchased their propery in 2002 and Garard took us on a tour of their two-acre vineyard and then we sat down to a delicious lunch prepared Barbara. We tasted their Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. All were well balanced and showed the Howell Mountain terroir. They don�t host many tastings so we were very appreciative they shared their wines and home with us.

A few weeks ago we had friends up and one wanted to taste at Louis Martini, so we stopped by. I was very surprised at the premium wines they poured as I only knew Louis Martini wines from the supermarket shelves. They have some impressive reds and a few 100 point winners. Definitely worth a visit.

And now, onto the wine releases...
