If you recall from last month’s Twisted Missive #1, we asked you to name two foods and a wine, where any two of those items taste good together, but when all three are combined, taste terrible. You folks came up with some great answers!
Yes, that’s right! A moment’s indiscretion in providing your email address some time in the distant past now results in this little missive hitting your email box! We hope you will give it a chance – read on!
Congratulations to Mary Jane & Greg who came closest to guessing the blend for the next vintage of Parcel 17 – correct answer was 40% Mourvedre, 20% Carignane, 40% Graciano.
So it was the weekend, and I wanted to eat some beef. And yet the traditional go to of a grilled ribeye, flank steak or beef tartar just didn’t seem like the right fit for what I was craving. It was cool, a little rainy outside and I even had my fake fireplace glowing (heating the inside of my chimney and nothing more), so I thought something with a little braise would be JUST the ticket. Since I work in the tasting room and often get to bring home leftover bottles of opened wine, I perused my selection on the kitchen counter. The skull stood out to me and I grabbed the bottle to see just how much was left in that puppy – about 1/2 a bottle – more than enough to get some flavor going.
In the Spring of 2004 two momentous events occurred. We moved into our new winery in Vallecito, and a little white pup came into our lives.
This is the time of year when newspapers, magazines, the airwaves (and cablewaves), and internet are full of it… er, meaning of course advice on what wine you should drink with your Thanksgiving turkey.

When we started our wine clubs way back in 2003, we had one club – The Twisted Few – and you could get two, six, or twelve bottles sent to you in January, March, May, July, September, and October. Life was good.
