2017 has started off with a lot of excitement for wineries across California, particularly for TIMBRE. Record rainfall in California after 5 years of draught has meant lush, green landscapes, unbelievable powder days on the slopes, and dreaming about the potential 2017 has to offer. While we would be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the problems the rain has caused, no one can argue that it was needed, and has been welcomed with a sigh of relief in the CA farming community. If you haven’t been to wine country in a while, you are missing out. It has been a while since it has been this green, and with bud break occurring left and right, it will only get more beautiful as the weeks roll on!
In TIMBRE specific news, you may have heard us mention it, but if not we are stoked to tell you that we are very close to opening our first tasting room in a few short weeks. While I am not sure of the official date as of yet, we are in the final stages of construction in the old village of Arroyo Grande. Chiasa and I have lived in “AG” for over 5 years (Alex’s second home as well), and we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to host you. The community in AG has been super-supportive of the winery, and we can’t wait to open the doors. Please come and visit us next time you are coming through… Until May 1st, please email Chiasa at Chiasa@TimbreWinery.com in case we are not officially open. Check our website and social media for updates and business hours in the next month or so.
We will also be having our annual Spring Open House on Sunday, April 23rd During the Spring Vintners Weekend. Come and taste our new releases as well as some other favorites for only $20 per person (Wine Club members are FREE). While you’re here, stay an extra day and come see the new tasting room! As always, help us spread the word to your wine-loving friends and enemies, and get with us on our TIMBRE social media, as our La Fenetre accounts are no longer in use. Holler at us @TimbreWinery on Facebook and Instagram.
Without further ado, we present our first release of 2015 TIMBRE (and 2016 Rose!). Check out the store for individual tasting notes and information about each of the new wines… Cheers!
