What Are Those Pretty Plants In The Vineyard? Mustard In The Vineyards

by Monica Bennion on February 15, 2017

As winter winds down and signs of spring start to pop up, one of our favorite things to see in the Napa Valley is the burst of yellow that blooms throughout and blankets the vineyards.  While these pretty plants are pleasing to the eye, their purpose goes beyond aesthetics.  But just what are those beautiful blossoms that seem to pop up overnight?  Mustard plants!  Probably not the eloquent name you were expecting for such an eye-catching and beneficial plant, but that’s exactly what it is.  While it may not qualify for one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it’s a true wonder in wine country not to be missed.

Beer vs. Wine - Why Choose When You Can Have Both!

by Monica Bennion on January 02, 2017

It's that time again!  Time for our next "Beer vs. Wine" Dinner on January 12, 2017!  If you missed the sold out event last year, NOW is the time to get your tickets to this one-of-a-kind dinner event.  The 2017 "Beer vs. Wine" Dinner event will be held at the Volcano Union Pub + Inn in historic downtown Volcano, CA.  The team at Volcano Union Pub + Inn has magically and masterfully crafted a menu to compliment wines produced by Scott Harvey and beers from Cool Beerworks out of Cool, CA.  Seating is limited...Don't miss this once-a-year event!

Our assistant Tasting Room Manager, Nicole, has written a wonderful blog describing the experience from our first "Beer vs. Wine" Dinner in 2016.  She shares with us how this idea was born all the way through the dinner event itself.

GET YOUR TICKETS TO THE 2017 BEER VS. WINE DINNER

"As Scott addressed the room full of people that had joined us for our sold out Beer VS Wine dinner at the Volcano Union Inn + Pub, I found myself taking a moment to reflect on how we got here to the magical end of this wonderful and challenging journey.  It must first be known that I have been in the industry for six years.  I have been a part of my fair share of Winemaker’s Dinners and have hosted my fair share of Beer Pairing Dinners.  The idea came to me one day while enjoying a pint after work at Sutter Creek Provisions in historic downtown Sutter Creek, CA.  I started to talk with Darin, proprietor at Sutter Creek Provisions, about the idea of a beer and wine pairing dinner and he mentioned that he had done one in the past with great success so I thought “This is PERFECT for us.”  We all know that it takes “a lot of good beer to make wine” and that every winemaker (at least all the ones I have met) loves their beer thirty during harvest so why not combine the two things we adore into one must attend dinner.

My How You Have Grown ~ A Look at the Growth of the Wine Industry

by Monica Bennion on October 06, 2016


As we wind down the 2016 harvest (Scott’s 43rd bounty), let’s take a moment to reflect on just how far the California wine industry has come.  By Proclamation of the Governor of California, September 2016 marked the 12th year that we have celebrated “California Wine Month”, and rightfully so!  The wine industry as a whole has grown exponentially over the last 50 years, and that growth has been seen largely throughout California.

While the 2016 harvest is finishing being picked, crushed and fermented, the 2015 numbers show us just how big the wine industry is getting, globally, nationally and here at home in sunny California.
