    Great plan. I did the exact thing with Mourvèdre in 2015. The rose received a silver, the red a
    gold at the state fair.

    I sprung for a Vin 300. Pricey, but necessary if you do volume.

Hey there. I see you maybe live in loomis? I live in Rocklin. I worked up to 250 pounds this season all from Lodi. I am looking to do more maybe a thousand pounds or so next season but I had a hard time finding vineyards/grapes for this season even for that small amount. Since you live close can you share with me some of your secrets as to where to find grapes in the lodi/loomis area? I am a bit new to making wine from grapes and am still learning where to find grapes. Thanks a lot and I love that you did so many grapes this season! And you are right we are lucky to be in Northern California! My name is Bill and thanks! Cheers!

@Busabill. Drop me a note at We lived in Rocklin for 25 years! If you are looking for a 1/2 ton, I can definely hook you up with some grapes in Loomis. I co-manage 20 acres of vineyard from our community Clos-du-lac and know a few other people that run local vineyards.
