Winemaker Matthew Crafton at CHATEAU MONTELENA In Napa Valley for 7 years wrote to me today, Wednesday afternoon, May 20th, 2015 just before leaving : " Don't change .... pleas. " Now that means a whole lot to me. Thank you for that Matthew for that. I wo't change, too young for that now! I really enjoyed trying all your wines here today, what a grand treat, it was very special for me. I liked all the wines, I liked the style, the honesty, their unique character and not trying more than they can be from the growing conditions, the soil and the age of the vines and being wines that I would indeed enjoy drinking myself. Nice.I liked hearing the phylosophy behind them, that the Zinfandel was a labor-of-love to make and certainly not the most profitable, and yet because you all believe you do it anyway : LOVED that! Also loved hearing the small bit about Virginia and the winery that Dave Mathew's mother owns and where I believe you said you know the winemaker, at BLENHEIM? Nice. Do you also know Brad McCarthey? Cheers, let's stay in touch. I would like that. TONY 5/20/2015 Come back again anytime : you are always welcome,
