Barb is one of my favorite people out East, and when I asked her for an update on their plans and the vineyard sale, she responded quickly with:

"We want to do more traveling and (as) you know, we bought a house in Antibes (France).Ten
years is a long run and we’ve fulfilled our dream 20 times over. But, we still are
continuing business as usual.

In 2008 our blend is coming out (merlot,cabernet
sauvignon and petit verdot) and our Rose will be released this April. I
will be working that much harder to keep our standards as high as they are.

want to hand it over to someone who has as much passion as we have. We have met
the most incredible people in this industry."

She also let me know that Sherwood House Vineyards will be starting a new wine club in the next couple of weeks. If you like elegant merlot and rich, Burgundian chardonnay, you should check it out.
