Sonoma for the Holidays
I love this time of year in the Wine Country. Fall colors still linger in the valleys, the traffic is a breeze compared to a few months ago and the tasting rooms are especially fun - Christmas decorations and music abound.
Most importantly, without the crowds, the tasting room staff has time to welcome visitors and talk about their wines!
USA Today agrees. "Winter is a cool time to visit California's wine country."
Download the iVisit Sonoma (or check out http://www.sonomacounty.com/ if you don't have an iPhone) and the iNapa apps before you arrive. They will have most everything you'll need for a fabulous trip in the Wine Country!
And, visit our new estate rental page that features our three properties, the Farmhouse at the Vineyard, the Lodge in the Woods and the Retreat on the Knoll.
A bottle of our gold medal Three Coins wine for each couple in the rental party will be on the counter to welcome you, with our thanks.
Just tell Hilary, our office manager, you're a Lawer Family Wines newsletter subscriber when you make your reservations.
For Christmas Eve Dinner, David is planning to roast a Prime Rib with all the fixings.
As for me, I'll be pouring our 2007 Three Coins Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It's deep, dark color and complex aromas of blackberries, black currents and currants lend it a rich quality with plenty of depth. In the mouth it has ripe, supple tannins, chocolaty oak, finishing very rich and flavorful.
With five gold medals, including a Double Gold at 2010 Indy International Wine Competition, this is definitely "the good stuff."
SAVE for the holidays with a Winery Direct discount of 20% on case orders for any of our wines - Three Coins, Hooker or Duck Shack. (Our Winery Direct pricing includes shipping-no extra charges!)
