Wow, who knew the wine business could have you in such a perpetual whirlwind of constant motion and busy-ness....okay we did. However, the wine business is not all about making wine, it's also about customer interaction, which is actually the fun part.This type of interactionhas allowed us tocommunicate with all of you on a different, more personal level.For us,it has been a truly humbling and heartfelt experiencethat many of you have takenour winesinto your home and enjoyed them with family and friends.
We love hearing your stories and seeing the pictures, you are all such wonderful and generous people. Sharing stories about our vineyard and wine experiences along the way has also been a bonus we have really enjoyed. We especially love sending wine pairing recipes to our wine club members monthly...the excitement never seems to end.
Back to the news! We are very proud to announce that our wine is now being carried by a wonderful restaurant, Blackfish Cafe , in Lincoln City, Oregon. Lincoln City is an iconic beach town on the Oregon Coast, a perfect spot for the Blackfish Cafeto call home. The food is amazing, which is why we felt this restaurant was the ideal match for our wine.
The chef/owner himself, Chef Rob Pounding, has an impressive resume, and as you can see has an elegant preparation of the fresh and local food he works with everyday. Is this not beautiful?
Because our wine pairs so well with many of the dishes available at the Blackfish Cafe, we know you can't go wrong with anything you choose.
Of course these pictures don't do the food justice. I blew them up in size from the ones on their site, causing the graininess you are seeing. But there is no doubt this is incredible food.
If you are going to be on the Oregon Coast, make sure to make the Blackfish one of your "must stops", it is worth every effort to get there. Reservations are recommended.
If you happen to be in a "chocolate mood" while dining at the Blackfish Cafe, may I recommend their homemade Ding Dong with Huckleberry Sauce...to die for!
Thanks again everyone for all of your continued support of our family dream! You have all helped in making this a reality.
