Harvest Party 2019

Harvest 2019 was one to celebrate. Although we wouldn't bring in our grapes for another 2 weeks, harvest was happening throughout Napa Valley, and everyone was thankful for a wonderful year.

Vineyard {511} held its private harvest party for its wine club on September 28, blessed by great weather and great friends. Our vineyard peacock Cabernet was at our front gate welcoming everyone in.



Our winemaker Rob Lloyd was on hand to tell everyone about our latest release--2015 Vineyard {511} Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon. Everyone got along famously and made new friends, while enjoying some wonderful food catered by Oak Avenue Catering in St. Helena.                                    


                                                    We also got the opportunity to re-connect with our friends Tom and Cathy Tardio.


Tom, the new CEO of the Napa Valley Film Festival, of which Ed and I are founding patrons, spoke to our guests about the exciting Festival activities to look forward to this November. Kevin Covert and his wife Stephanie came up from Manhattan Beach, CA (close to where we live in Southern California). The couple that attended from the furthest distance were Ruth and John Eliason from Minnesota, who we met in Belize.                                            

We ended the afternoon by announcing the raffle winner of a magnum of our latest release--our 2015 Cab; the lucky winner was Tim Leahy, who we met on a Bordeaux river cruise in August. Our wine club members come from far and wide, but we love having them nearby.
