The Countdown Begins

This is my last blog post until Pinot Fest (May 15-17) is over, so here's all the latest and greatest at Foursight:

- Our 2007 Sauvignon Blanc was just named one of the year's best in the June 2009 issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine. I'm amazed - between the 91 points, 90 points and editor's choice, gold medal and now year's best, this wine has rocked it. Especially for a white wine, where 90 points is general considered a bit of a glass ceiling. I know we love it, but we're apparently not the only ones.

- Our grand opening is next Sunday, May 17, so if you're in town please stop by and say hello. We're having food, wine of course, and maybe a few surprises. Hours are 10-5 at 14475 Hwy. 128 in Boonville. (707) 895-2889 or info@foursightwines.com

- The Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Festival is a big event for us (and the rest of the valley). Even with a tough economy, our grand tasting has sold out yet again, so only a few events are still available.

For Foursight, it's when we debut our new wines, so look for our 2007 Pinots at the grand tasting on Saturday (at Goldeneye Winery). It will be interesting to see how a Pinot Festival is with a tasting room. My younger brother, Tim, is in today - learning the ropes. My brothers will be helping to man the tasting room next weekend, which the rest of us are busy running the event or pouring our wines. The only person who will be missing on Sunday will be Joe (sadly), as he has to help at the Londers' open house.

Until then, pull, pour and enjoy!
