Feeling Thankful



Post-Harvest Greetings!

Harvest this year was the best we have seen in at least the last 5 to 6 years! Beautiful fruit! All of the amazing reasons that brought me to Santa Barbara County to make wine were in full bloom and easily identifiable. Cold nights and moderate days allowed the fruit to retain its own marvelous acidity, the hallmark of our region. Our new production facility was put to its first real test and performed admirably! Efficiency and proximity allowed for one of the most focused and successful harvests I have ever been involved in. A big salute is in order for our Assistant Winemaker Javier Franco for organizing and executing a fantastic vintage in a brand new facility.

As we lovingly labored through a constant barrage of grapes, inspiration came in the news that our Vermentino was to be served at the final State Dinner at the White House for the current administration. It has been an immense honor for Palmina to “bookend” this administration by being used as a gift in 2009 to then Italian President Napolitano at President Obama’s first G8 summit in Rome, and then again at the final State Dinner for Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in October.

But alas, now our attention turns again to one of our favorite times of the year! With the Holidays coming fast, it is time for… NEBBIOLO!!!

We will be celebrating our favorite grape over the month of November with the release of our 2009 vintage of Vineyard Designates. Please stop by to try the incredible variety of flavors and aromas this wine provides.

With Halloween behind us, it is time for that most American of holidays, Thanksgiving! It is our sincere desire that this year you celebrate this most indigenous celebration with indigenous food and wine.  And nothing goes better with turkey than Nebbiolo!  We have whites to start your celebration, Rosé to continue and Nebbiolo to serve alongside your main course.

As always, we are humbled by your continued support and look forward to seeing you over the holidays! I’ll be making pizza at our Red, White and Green Party on December 17th, and would love to see you there.

All our best to you and your family and friends over this Holiday Season!
