Back with another one of those Block Rockin’ Easts!
You were there diggin’ Block 3. You know all about it!
Now, it’s time to rock Blocks 1, 4 & 5 …
and this time, EVERYONE is getting into the action!

Whatever it is, just remember that when you see that Wine Educator, that Wine Salesperson, that Winery Representative, coming through the door, and they’re well-dressed, and their socks match, and they’re rockin’ high-brow/lo-brow-sophisticate footwear, and their pomade is sparklin’, and their horn-rims are layin’ just right, just remember, just remember, that that lil’ speck of rust-colored somethin’ that you see spacklin’ a cuff, just remember that ain’t laundry fluff, or a loose thread, or a croissant crumb. That’s vineyard dust, baby …
Left to right, that’s Mike Torino, Dan Buckler, and Christina Donley. They’re our Regional Sales Managers, and if you’ve got a good wine shop in your town, they’ll be there. Block Rockin’, authentically …
Congratulations to John Olney, and to Will Thomas, our Lytton Springs viticulturist, and to the entire Lytton Springs team, for another great pick!
