The entire experience at @beldenbarns is truly magical but the dreamiest part of it all is their wishing tree. ⁣ ⁣ A short walk from the barn leads you down to the tree, which is already full of other’s wishes hanging and empty slots for your wish. As the wind blows the wishes twirl around you under the shade of the tree. The Beldens swear the tree has magical powers so be careful what you wish for, but also remember to Wish Big. ⁣ ⁣ Read more about the wishing tree and Belden Barns at the link in our bio! Wishing you a fantastic weekend #wnwc #wishbig

I get this question all the time on my wine tours, "What is a Sommelier and what do they do?"⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ A Sommelier (pronounced "suh-mel-yay") is an early 19th-century French word with the literal meaning of "butler". A Sommelier, or wine steward, is a trained and knowledgeable wine professional, normally working in fine restaurants, who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairing. #sommelier #winetasting #wineexpert #sommelierpro⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #wine #napavalley #winetasting #winelover #winetour #grape #grapevine #winegrapes #sonomavalleywine #visitnapavalley #napavalleylife #napavalleywinery #sonomawinery #rainbow #rainbows #vineyard #springtime #wineharvest #gardener #garden #grapes⁣⠀

A few weeks ago I had a great time showing these ladies a few of the finest wineries around the Napa Valley! It got a little chilly in the afternoon, but nothing a warm fire and glass of Chardonnay can't fix!⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Contact me through the link in my bio to book your customized, private wine tour today. #FineWineTours ⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #wine #napavalley #winetasting #winelover #winetour #grape #grapevine #winegrapes #sonomavalleywine #visitnapavalley #napavalleylife #napavalleywinery #sonomawinery #rainbow #rainbows #vineyard #springtime #wineharvest #gardener #garden #grapes⁣⠀

Today is #InternationalMalbec day, and Yes! We grow Malbec on our estate! Following traditional Right Bank Bordeaux blend style, we use smaller amounts of this deep, peppery, full-bodied, noble grape to balance tannins in our blends and provide a distinctive & voluptuous mouthfeel. Savor our Malbec in the (coming soon) 2017 Otoño red blend, being released to wine club members in the October release. An interesting Malbec #winefact: Although found throughout parts of France, Argentina can essentially be credited with reinvigorating Malbec as one of the top 18 noble grapes. Now, it grows it seven countries with about 3,400 acres planted in the USA alone. Yummmmmm. Cheers!

Happy #MalbecWorldDay! What’s your favorite varietal or winery? 🍷 . Many years ago, Argentina’s President turned around his country’s wine industry as France was experiencing plague with Malbec vines. When brought to South America, they thrived! 🌱 . Cheers to @thumbprintcellars for reminding me of this delicious day and to @shadowbrookwinery where I captured this photo and love to enjoy big reds !🍷 • • • • • #malbecday #southamericanwine #bayareawinery #napawinetasting #sonomacountywine #sonomawinery #napavalleywinery #livermorewine #livermorewinery #pasorobleswinecountry #pasorobleswineries #bayareatastingroom #eastbaywinery #eastbaywine #denverwine #denverwinebar

Here are 3 wine harvesting myths that I see all the time: ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ 1. Harvest date is decided by measuring sugar content- this is not necessarily true. Each grower & winemaker measures the sugar, but that’s not how harvest dates are set.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ 2. Everything gets picked on “Harvest Day”. This also isn't true, most of the time. Nearly all wine producers in the Napa and Sonoma valley have several harvest days, often weeks, to ensure each grape is ripe and ready. ⁣⠀ 3. Manual harvesting is better than mechanized⁣. This one is still up for debate, as humans are still the the best judges to how ripe a grape is. And hand harvesting has the potential to produce better results than mechanical harvesters, but technology these days have given us very advanced mechanized harvesters that can mimic hand picking techniques, which can be helpful for small vineyards who may not have the budget or manpower to hand harvest. .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ #wine #napavalley #winetasting #winelover #winetour #grape #grapevine #winegrapes #sonomavalleywine #visitnapavalley #napavalleylife #napavalleywinery #sonomawinery #rainbow #rainbows #vineyard #springtime #wineharvest #gardener #garden #grapes
