2014 Review

2014 was a special and wonderful year. We have been accomplished a lot with wine inside and out. The key experience was the US trip to the West Coast.

The four weeks Anniversary trip was complimented with the vineyard, food and wines – how amazing ! They are also different exposure and “culture” to diversify our wine experience.
