How are you? I am loving Napa-- I miss Paso wine, but there is a LOT of fantastic Cab up here, and to be honest I was getting a bit Zinned-out down south. My Dad sent me an e-mail about this website and it looks fun. Let me know how the show is going with Jan!
Howdy, Allison! Great to hear from you. Yeah, I love those Napa Cabs and now, I discovered the Barbera's from the newest AVA in the U.S.; Fair Play!
Pop in and visit my friend Michelle at Alpha Omega Winery (Robin Bagget, a founding partner in Tolosa, bought an existing winery and redubbed it A/O) in Napa sometime... they snatched the winemaker of 11 years from Lynch Bagette. mmmm. Jan's starting to get the hang of it and I've had another guest host, Lynn Diehl, a veteran TV newscaster, for a couple of shows, too.
Keep in touch and keep me up-to-date on doings in the Napa!
I'll make a note of that... I love San Luis Obispo.
I'll bet I can talk my wife into a motorcycle ride down south during the winter for a long weekend!

What a great sounding business, Stu. If you're in the neighborhood you've got to meet my friend Les Brown of Metal Arts Sculpture Gallery. He started the biz for large format bronze casting (sculpture) and has pioneered numerous fascinating techniques and processes since.
Hi Wine Whisperer! Love the clever name. We share the great fortune of living in the paradise of SLO. Actually, our Vigneron office is in SLO - we live in quaint Santa Margarita.
We own a company called Vigneron Specialty Products and we manufacture the XpressFill - a small, portable bottle-filling machine for specialty wines, olive oils, lotions, waters, etc. Would love to get featured on your station. Many years ago, I worked at Justin Winery and Castoro Cellars as well as spending several years with Ian McPhee. I eventually managed Big Sky Cafe before purchasing Merry Maids of SLO. We bought Vigneron just under 2 years ago and totally revamped every part of the machine and business. Would love to connect...judy@XpressFill.com
