Greetings from WineRelease.

This month we had 40 winery updates and 27 wineries releasing wine.

Hope your holidays were fun. We spent most of our time at our home in St. Helena. We rediscovered Compline restaurant in Napa (1300 1st St # 312) and had two excellent dinners there. The restaurant (tucked away down a breezeway a short distance from Eiko's) boasts 400+ wines from around the world, many not seen on restaurant wine lists and great food and service. We also discovered Lovina in Calistoga. A quaint restaurant located on Cedar at Lincoln Ave. Service was excellent, and the food was amazing.

For New Year�s we made salmon and scallop nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls from Santa Rosa Seafood fish. We had a great time attempting to form the rice into nigiri and smashing it into the seaweed for rolls. We paired the sushi with sake and Sancerre.

At 9pm as we watched the ball drop and tried to convince the kids it was midnight, but that didn�t work since my daughter knows that New York is 3 hours ahead of San Francisco. We still managed to get them to bed before 10pm.

Fun times.

And now, onto the wine releases...
