Vino In My Dino

Reflections on the year, our 90th anniversary if you haven’t heard, and the highlights on becoming 90.
A few of my favorite wine moments this year includes our 90th anniversary toast in the vineyard;
being on hand when my dad was honored both as an Icon of Sonoma County and a Lifetime Achievement Award;
doing 5 ‘taste ups’ (which are tweet up wine and food pairings) with wine blogging friends across the U.S.;
accomplishing our goal of visiting 90 cities in celebration of our 90th anniversary;
harvesting the last grapes 10 days before the firestorm hit Sonoma County;
going on a first wine cruise along the Danube River in November-and meeting the best people;
raising $5000 for CAWineStrong by donating $1 for every bottle purchased between October 15 and November 30.
This vintage will be defined by the monumental firestorm but the year itself will, for us here at Pedroncelli, be remembered as our ninth decade in the wine business where we ride the waves of the market, what Mother Nature throws at us and we keep our head up looking to the Next Ninety.
