A BIG thank you to Sherrie Croshaw who photographed and videotaped our blending and bottling day. Now everyone can see us in action! Also, to her talented son JAKE who produced, edited, added music, and posted it for us!!!

Another BIG THANKS to Dusty Kenny, our label designer, and to Pat Meyer our label printer. It takes a village to get it all together, so thank you all who made it possible!

We all try to use unscented products when going to a wine tasting (hair, skin, body, deodorant-- perfume free). It's not just because of allergies, it's so we can really smell and taste the wine better.
More wine tasting tips, click on the link to" Women Who Wine in Washington" on OUR BLOG LIST to the left.
Scroll down to the Monday, Jan. 11, 2010 entry titled"Wine touring tips".
