During the month of Janaury, we use this chance (when it is not raining ) to take care of some chores. So far this year, we have:
1.Updated our computer system – nothing like a new, faster system to keep our lines of communication in top gear!
2.Cleaned out the Trailside House Cellar Room - we are going to begin offering our Reserve Cellar Room tastings on Valentine’s Day weekend (watch for details and invitations).
3.Replaced the gravel driveways with a new paving job – its race-track smooth and easy on even your best shoes!
4.Worked on Vineyard Draining systems – it seems like the entire Stags Leap District watershed passes through our vineyard and our poor vines get very wet feet!
While our to-do list still remains long … we are ready for Spring (today it is almost 70 degrees) and hope for lots of company in the Tasting Room. We’d much rather share our wine then do the chores anyway!
Is there a better way to spend your afternoon than enjoying our amazing 2007 Baldacci Family Vineyards wines? Well … we think that we can one-up this … how about spending the afternoon at Baldacci Family Vineyards enjoying our amazing 2007 Cabernets AND some 2007 Cabernets from Mi Sueño Winery (this is the winery owned by our winemaker, Rolando Herrera http://misuenowinery.com) AND filling up on beef sliders from Snake River Farms (plus all the fixin’s)? If this sounds like the perfect afternoon for you then please join us on Saturday, Sept 25 from 12-5 pm for an afternoon of CAB & COW! Tickets are $40 per person in advance and $50 per person on the day of the event. The ticket price gives you access to all the CAB & COW that you want to enjoy — and we will even have some other cellar surprises to enjoy!! Please contact Fran in the Tasting Room firstname.lastname@example.org to get your tickets. If you mention that you saw this information online then we’ll give you $5 off the individual ticket price! See you on Saturday …
Did many of you get a chance to see the article in the Sunday, Nov 29th, Travel Section of the San Francisco Chronicle? Check out the link to see what they had to say about “A find, hidden among Silverado’s heavy hitters” … but many of you already know!

We are thankful for so many things. But, today especially, we are thankful that our new website is live!! Creating a new website is much more complicated than we thought … a year in the making! It has taken countless hours and as many glasses of wine to track down the info and photos that anyone might want to have (at a glance) — the how’s and why’s of Baldacci Family Vineyards. We hope that this becomes a site that you enjoy visiting as we continue to update our content with events at the winery, wine tasting notes, and great specials for anyone who is on our email list.
Please let us know if there are any topics that interest you and we can begin some interesting posts to share what we like to talk about … that would be wine … and us (of course!!)
