| Welcome to the February Newsletter from Jodar Vineyards!
Lots going on this month as we introduce a new WineOsaur label to stand beside our beautiful Jodar label. The latest version of the famous Vinasaurus Rex is in pre-release, and will be in full on release on Saturday, February 16th along with the new 2009 Jodar Port.
This weekend will also introduce the changes in one of our popular wineclubs. All two bottle members are upgraded to the new WineOsaur club. We feel it is now one of the best values in Club membership in the Sierra Foothills! The benefits are simple ~ Join the club today and get 25% off everything on the day you join. Then it's 20% off everything, everyday. Special case discounts, special club only events, release parties (like the one February 16th, 17th and 18th!) with focused food pairings and music, discounts to winemaker dinners and much more! Check it out by going to the Club tab on the website!
Always a good time at the tasting room. We get great feedback on our wines and pairings and just plain fun! Join us anytime at 3405 Carson Ct. Placerville, CA. Call (530) 644-3474 or check the website for upcoming events!
We've had a bit of a dry winter so far, but the vines are in good shape. Lots' going on this month in vineyard and cellar! We're bottling the 2010 Sangiovese toward the end of the month to be ready for a May release, keeping up with topping and racking the barrels, doing a bit of lab work to make sure the wines are tracking right along as they should on their way to becoming signature Jodar varietals. All this in addition to the piles of paperwork required by County, State and Federal regulations to keep track of it all.
In the vineyard Fausto has been pruning the vines over the last few weeks - a task that is one of the many that require diligent hand work vine to vine. It's also a time to assess vineyard stakes to replace the ones that need replacing, checking the vines one by one to make sure they are ready for another season!
It has also been a bit of a warm winter as well so you'll find us walking the vineyard whispering to the vines to ignore the warm weather and stay sleeping and dreaming a few more weeks!
We're honored to have you visit the website and hope you take advantage of all there is to offer here, not the least is the ability to purchase the "fruits" of our labor right from out web store. Multibottle discounts are built right in, as well as club discounts. Be sure to check back again and again to see running specials as well. We'll throw in a surprise at lease once a month!
Till next time,
