Welcome to SWGGA…
Our Next Meeting…
Check here regularly to get updates about coming meetings.
Just a reminder that we will be having a SWGGA General Meeting by Zoom this evening at 7:00 PM. The invitation is below.
Program: John Gilman, Proprietor of New West Wine Co, will talk about his wines, his approach to wine selection, and how he got “into” wine in the first place. This will be a gentle interview by myself, taking place in John’s shop, with the usual Q&A afterwards. The wine shop is located in the Holbrooke Hotel, but access is from Main Street in Grass Valley.
We hope to see you then.
Recent News and Items of Interest…
These are Wine Bottle‘s with a hermetically sealed closure. I have seven cases of them. They are washed and sanitized I’m asking five dollars per case. Thanks Gary, If interested, contact Gary at: email@example.com
I own a 1/3-acre vineyard (200 vines with NID water), just south of Grass Valley proper, off McCourtney in Mustang Valley. There are three varieties of red grapes for wine making: Zinfandel, Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are going into their 8th year and are good producers. I don’t have the time to invest in becoming a decent wine maker but it would be great if someone that is such an expert took advantage of the grapes.
SWGGA member John Geraghty sent an email indicating that he has grapes for sale, available from his Auburn vineyard:
“ about 500 lbs of Grenache, or, a few 100 lbs Syrah. Price is $1400/ton ”
