Greetings from WineRelease.

This month we had 115 winery updates and 36 wineries releasing wine.

Hope the holidays are treating you well. The smell of fermentation is still in the air in the Napa Valley, if you are thinking of a trip, go now, to avoid the crowds.

I added 2018 wine releases to the site so budget accordingly.

And now, onto the wine releases...
