Do you dig Winter?
Wait, let me retracticulate; do you dig Winter in Northern California Wine Country?
And are you down with Wine? Specifically, Wine from the Northern Sonoma territories? And if thou do indeed be so hip to it, let me ask you this: When you see the word “Land,” do you think Noun, or Verb?
Put another way, do you Husker Du:
Barren lands and barren minds
In another place and time
I feel i’ve never known myself
Frozen in the sand again
See the blank expressions waiting for progression
They’re standing still in place and time
And no one’s moving, they’re only
Standing still in ice cold ice cold ice
Or do you Bernard & Smith?
Gone away is the blue bird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along
Walkin’ in a winter wonderland
Or do you in fact Winter Wineland?
This is a great opportunity to meet winemakers, taste limited production wines, new releases or library wines. Some wineries will offer food pairings and others will have tours. Each participating winery will either host an artist for the weekend, so you will enjoy their fine-art, or the winery will have an educational display to help you learn about vineyard management or wine making….thus,
Wine ~ Art ~ Education.
Point bein’, cat, that this is where it’s at, where all the good words posit theyselves in the same sentencennial constructive; meaning, put Winter, Wine, & Land together, and they harmony starts gettin’ it!
Lost? Glum thee not, here are the specs from our very own Sandy Johnson, Empress on High of Lytton Springs:
Join us on January 15th and 16th in the Lytton Springs Tasting Room for the 19th Annual Winter Wineland Event – A wonderful weekend blend of wine, food, art, and education!
We will be pouring an esteemed roster of Single-Vineyard offerings as opening act to a headliningly fantastico food & wine pairing:
2006 Ridge Vineyards Lytton Estate Syrah/Grenache with a delicious and savory slow-cooked Brazilian Feijoada stew (chicken, pork, sausage, black beans and spices). Foodawesomeness to come germinatingly from the oh so digable Relish!
And jes’ in case that t’weren’t enough, there is a visual component as well!
The Lytton Springs Tasting Room will be proudly displaying the most beautaceous and fine natural fiber artwork and photography of esteemed local artist Fred Vedder.
