Re: Bedrock Save the Date Winter 2020 Release

Just bought my farmhouse bottles and the dessert wine, I just can't do more, as it stands now it will take 3 months of heavy drinking to fit those in my cellar. First world problems :(

Re: A Tribute to Grace — Tasting

I quietly buy up a lot of her wines and love them, the oldest ones I have had are 7 years and have plenty of life left (I think). And if you get a chance to try her Luke bottling do it! The Beason vineyard bottles great too.
