Okay, who's up for a weekend (Nov. 5th & 6th) in Santa Barbara Wine Country?

And helping me bottle my Syrah on Nov. 5th in Ventura? Each couple that helps gets a bottle!


Bottling at Squashed Grapes in Ventura on Nov. 5th at 2:30pm in the afternoon. Snacks and more wine to drink provided.


I think we'll have enough time before to head up to Santa Barbara and visit Jaffurs and Kalyra by the Sea in Santa Barbara.

Probably not enough time after, so maybe before the bottling hit SB around 11 am and visit the SB wineries.


Then Sunday hit some of the other wineries (Larry of Tercero is always happy to see wooters, and his new tasting room is very close to other rooms!) in the Santa Barbara area.


Who's in?

Is this date set in stone? I would help you... if only you were doing this the following weekend. I will be in SoCal for a meeting on the 14th. I’m considering coming down a couple days early. Will you be around?

Maybe ... I can check and see, although I was thinking we could use that weekend to raid Tim's and my wine lockers.

And then you could pick up the remainder of your CyberPub wine. I think there might be 1 or 2 bottles left.

This is what you missed in addition to the Maximus .... Triacip2, KR Grenache Rosé, Bogle PS (Duh!), and not in the picture (but enjoyed all around) (drum roll) Vincent Arroyo PS Port.

Oh, and Brandini Toffee.





And the new label:




Suffer!!!!
