A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Uphold is a new label from Ryan & Megan Glaab of RymeCllrs. Mostly value-priced wines. The profits from each wine go to various charitable causes, the Calif Fire Relief Fund in this case.
The BengierVnyd is the original Calif RG vnyd planted some 10 yrs ago by GeorgeVare. It was purchased by GaryBengier several yrs ago upon George's death.
Diavola Pizzeria in Geyserville is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Calif. Across the board excellent Italian food w/ speciality in wood-fired pizzas. Quite a nice wine list as well.
