Believe it or not, another busy month has come and gone…Here are our favorite reader comments for the month of July.
We added a new feature to the blog in July–we’re now tracking all Napa Valley wineries that have blogs. We found just a select few in our quick research and reader Julian helped us build out our list quite a bit! Thanks Julian!
Great job, everybody. Thanks to you all for bringing this story to us. CH has fans (like me) and skeptics, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one thing I know for sure: nothing gets me to the Costco faster than a CH Wine announcement!
We covered news of a new movie getting set to start filming in the valley and reader “B. Napa” said we should check-out CRUSH:
Good luck to those projectsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
if you want to see a REAL wine film, check out “CRUSH” a B. Napa film playing online.
Wonderful.. wonderful pics of juicy grapes waiting to be plucked and made into mouth-watering wine
And finally, “Peter” visited Daryl Sattui’s Castello di Amorosa this month and shared his thoughts:
I visited the Castello di Amorosa in July, 2007. I felt I was at a Disneyland winery Ã¢â‚¬â€ and that isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t a good thing. Serious and semi-serious wine drinkers should avoid the winery. The wines were good enough, but not at the prices they charged. Although the castle was impressive, I felt it was out-of-place and a monument to someoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ego. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d describe myself as a semi-serious wine drinker willing to give nearly anything a go. I have visited dozens of wineries in Napa and Sonoma. A few have disappointed me. This was the biggest disappointment.
Keep those comments coming! Until next month…
