My Friends Courtney and Britney fed all the animals and held down the fort at Big Table.. thanks ladies!!
So on our way down to CA we got a call from The Tasting Room in Carlton they said that they had heard about out rose and wanted to try it!! whooo hooo! so on Tuesday I took in some wine for them to try... so now our wine is available and being poured at The Tasting room in Carlton - Thank You Sara and Jay! it's very exciting!!
A few of you asked about the rose and how to buy some.. for those in Oregon it's now officially for sale and I can deliver it to you if you live close by. We are selling it in 6 bottle allocations only right now and it's $22 a bottle. If you live in CA wine can be shipped to you in the fall as it's just to risky to ship wine in the summer... you can e-mail me at clare-at-bigtablefarm.com for an order form. I also did leave two cases with our friends Kim and Scott in Napa as there was some immediate interest from a few of you... so if any of you Napa, Marin SF folks MUST have some NOW there's enough for 4 people/orders up in napa ... and that will be first come first serve and you'll have to pick it up.. here are the notes from the tasting sheet I wrote up for the retailer.. Thank you for all your enthusiasm and support as we stick our toes into the water... Cheers!
