So. I had a goldfish. WE had a goldfish. During covid. I never wanted to keep a fish in captivity but… my daughter desperately wanted a goldfish to keep her company. Which ended up being my goldfish, of course. Their name was Tequila. We think it was a they. I fed this damn fish every single day, to the point where it became a ritual for me, and when I would walk by the fish it would wiggle its whole little body and get all excited to see me. I fed this thing every day for 3 years. I was emotionally attached to a goldfish. And then Tequila went and died on me. Right as we were headed into our 9th harvest here at Two Wolves. Maybe Tequila knew I wouldn’t be around as much to wiggle for.
Harvest has begun here and we’ve brought in the Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and some Grenache for our very exciting second year of making sparkling wine. It was fun to kick things off on a slightly cooler Saturday…
We had a cold spring and got a late start due to cooler soils. It’s been consistently, incredibly windy. Wind always makes us a little nervous.
A beautiful warm June, mild July, and the heat in August was steady which has caught us up to a more typical time frame. The fruit is generally light this year but looking really clean and perfect.
We are super-duper excited to announce that we now have wine in Australia! We have partnered with a fantastic importer, Cellarhand Wines, and look forward to sharing our wines with you and hearing about your experiences.
This summer we had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with Chef Kim Alter at Nightbird in San Francisco for an all-female wine dinner. Meaning, the chef, the winemakers, the caviar company, the purveyors, the playlist, and even the plates we ate that beautiful food on- all made by women. How cool is that?
Much love and gratitude from all of us to all of you.
Alecia, head wino
