Each shipment comes with a letter from Joy
Here is the cover letter from the most recent shipment:
Dear Club Members,
I am very excited to send you your May shipment, while spring is in full flower. The poppies are the highlight of the moment.
They are an upside to a dry year, which I hope bodes well for an equally vibrant and abundant vintage.
We’ve included a bottle of 2010 Summer’s Cuvee for you to toast the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day, which is, amazingly, right around the corner. How perfect that the label is inspired by a field of poppies.
The 2010 Native Yeast Chardonnay is a clean, elegant and complex wine, brisk in acidity and wonderfully dry with bright citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Most of all, I love the texture of this wine. It is my choice to go with a classic lobster roll.
I hope you will join us for Oyster Sundays – every Sunday - for fresh, locally harvested Myagi Oysters, shucked to order, raw or barbecued at $3 each, cash only. What could be better than bubbles and oysters on Sunday afternoons overlooking our view? And, we are hosting a Garden Party exclusively for club members at my parents’ home on June 8. Please contact Wine Club Manager Kevin Vanderhoff to make reservations 707 887 1507 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also give you fair warning that we are down to 35 cases of the Tasting Room’s current favorite, 2011 Winery Block Pinot Noir. Call or email Kevin to order before it is gone. The 2012 is still in barrel and won’t be released until after harvest.
Wishing you all my best, as always,
