Spring 2016                             
Spring Newsletter - 2016

In the Vineyard
Boy! Time has really gone by fast this Spring! At this time of year, it's all fun in the vineyards. "Suckering" (trimming the base of the vine), dusting, thinning and testing vines for nutrients. It's all essential in producing quality fruit.
Our vineyard manager, Les Dunning really has his hands full this time of year. He works 'round the clock to ensure timing of each process is perfect. Two more weeks or so, and it will slow down.
As for the outlook on this year's crop, we have been counting clusters as they've been recently showing themselves. Looks to be an average-sized crop. Average is good when talking about yields as it makes for better quality fruit to make fantastic wines.
Until next time, Cheers!
-Steve and Lori Felten

Did you see?
Our sales team recently visited the Charleston market. While there, they stopped at Bill Murray's restaurant, Harold's Cabin, and had the pleasure of tasting some 2013 Old Ghost with Mr. Bill Murray himself! Pictured here from left to right: Bill Murray (obviously), Elizabeth Barnard (National Sales Director), & Lynne Barnard (Former President of Klinker Brick).

Carefully crafted with top quality in mind, Grand Reserve represents the finest syrah from each vintage. Aromas reflect black currant, leather, oak shavings and subtle floral notes. On the palate, seasonal notes of cinnamon, anise and nutmeg are wrapped with bold flavors of licorice, plum and black cherry. This wine is big, bold and not for the faint of heart…
This special production of Farrah Syrah is extremely limited. Get yours today!

Spring Wine Club Release Party was a huge SUCCESS!!
Wow! That band was AWESOME! 'ClusterPhunk' lit up the tent with some classic yet 'dance-able' live music and entertainment spicy enough to keep pace with Addy's Paella, which once again, was incredible! The beautiful weather certainly added to the fun as well. A big thanks to Robin Baglietto and The Local Artisan Co-Op for making their local and limited products available to club members. Also thanks to BAM Treats sampling their delicious chocolate-covered toffee. Hope to see everyone again in July!
Next Club Party - July 23-24
