It’s hard to believe that we are nearly at the end of another year. Christmas is nearly upon us and soon we’ll ring in the new year. As we spend time with loved ones and think about the year, we can’t help but feel blessed. 2016 was a great year for Still Waters, with many triumphs and adventures along the way. We had our best harvest yet, with the harvest this year totaling at 70 tons, compared to last year’s 28 tons. That will give us nearly 4,000 cases, a vast improvement from the 1600 from last year’s. We are blessed for such a good year to supplement the last few! Everything is tasting fabulous and we cannot wait to share with you all what we have made. This year we have sold fruit to 12 different wineries and our home winemaker’s club is nearing 80 individuals. We have 24 chickens and one small but mighty rooster, producing some of the best eggs we have ever had. We participated in 4 Paso wine festivals this year- Blend Fest, Vintage Paso, May Festival, and Harvest Festival. We hosted our first ever Wine Olympics during Harvest festival that included barrel rolls and grape stomping. February saw our annual Roll Out the Barrels which continually proves to be one of our most cherished events. In June, Still Waters hosted our first annual Summer Winemaker’s Dinner, showcasing some fabulous vintages paired with delicious courses Our summer was highlighted by the Picture Perfect Concert series, the first starting on mother’s day with the beloved Louis Ortega. Our menu has expanded with the addition of the Sangiovese and the stand alone Grenache.
