WineRelease.com's May 15, 2021 Monthly Newsletter.

This month we had 90 winery updates and 52 wineries releasing wine.

Belated Happy Mother's Day. We celebrated Mother's Day at Press in St. Helena with our friends Gordon and Anissa. We had a fantastic meal and paired it with a 2011 School House Pinot Noir. The hints of cola, dark cherry and red plums went well with our meal so we opted for the 2015 as well. The Press wine list is quite impressive and they featured a mini vertical of 6 School House Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs.

2011 and 2015 School House Pinot Noir

And now, onto the wine releases...
