Haiku for you
Freddie Mercury Dog chillin' with his lion pal.
The Dog Days of Summer are here.
Yet they fly too quickly.
Mercury Wines in quaint Geyserville, CA specializes in Bordeaux-style blends and small lots of Tempranillo, Mourvedre, and other fun varieties. All lovingly watched over by Freddie Mercury Dog.
Grapes, grapes, and more grapes
Yup, it's that time of year again. Thought you'd enjoy seeing the abundance of this year's harvest!
After loading these photos, I wondered, what exactly is a "grape". Did you know it's a berry? And that yeast occurs naturally on it's skins so somebody about 8,000 years ago in probably around Georgia (not the peachy Georgia but the Stalin (meah) | Black Sea Georgia) had an "Aha!" moment. Very cool, yes?
If you've drank Argyle Sparkling Brut, then you've drank Oregon bubbles! Bet you didn't even know it.
The Dog days of summer
Winery dogs rule!
And so do surfer dogs!
The Rustridge Gang
Life's tough patrolling 400 acres.
If I could drive, I'd trade me some Zin for big juicy bones!
Really, you drank a '73 Chateau Montelena last night and didn't pour some in my bowl?
Yup, this is my Eminent Domaine!
Do you know the story of "Wino Forever"? When Johnny was dating Winona Rider, he had "Winona Forever" tattooed on his upper right Arm.
After the break up, they couldn't get the rest of it out. So he turned it into "Wino Forever". Deep, yes?
Thank you, Johnny.
A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words...
As W.E.P. French said, opening a bottle of wine can lead to many things. Occasionally, we love posting photos of our adventures here, or a little ditty on wines we think you'd love, people of interest, and other things that come to mind.
