2016 Year in Review
My parents left me an amazing legacy—one that I will continue to maintain—farming, winemaking, hospitality—at levels that would make them both proud. Little will change! I can promise you that.
What we all love most about this lifestyle—is you—the people we meet from all over the world. You make the food and wine taste better and always remind us of how lucky we are to live in paradise! To all of our many friends and loyal wine buyers, we thank you for your ongoing support.
After harvest in 2016, I pulled an acre of aged Merlot and will plant 600 Cabernet Franc vines in the spring of 2017. Napa Cab Francs seems to get better every year and several very good ones come from Spring Mountain. So I am excited by the possibilities! Patience please! It will be 8 years before I will have a Paloma Estate Cabernet Franc to share. It will be called “Ode to Barbara” to ensure her ongoing support!
