What Makes Great Wine?

All of this rain is making Malibu look more like Ireland than a beach town (no complaints!) We are being replenished and our wells and lakes are feeling full again.

Remember that awkwardly-obsessed-with-water August monthly I sent out last year? Well it looks like all of my rain dancing has finally paid off! Saddlerock Ranch is now flush with water, filling both of our lakes and then some. Unfortunately, I have to play devil’s advocate here. First, THIS IS GREAT NEWS. More water means more vine growth, delayed pruning, more crop at harvest and less plant stress. However, a big thing to consider is duration.  Continue »
