Dear Friends,
 
The results from the 2019 SF Chronicle Wine Competition are in! We scored big in the largest American wine competition. Both the 2016 Alitia and 2016 Picnic Hill Zinfandels were awarded Gold Medals. And our 2017 Carneros Chardonnay received a Double Gold Medal just missing out on another Best in Class! The rest of wines entered took silver. Nice to see all the hard work and long hours paying off. Now it's time to start drinking these award winning wines.
 
Recently a great group of dedicated and loyal friends helped bottle our premium reds from the 2017 vintage including Quartz, Alita, and Picnic Hill Zinfandels, as well as our Syrah. We also bottled our brand new 2018 Estate Rose. Wait till you get a taste of this Provencaux style Rose - coming this spring!
 
While we toast the newest wines in the bottle, it's time to get our shears and loppers out and start pruning the vines for the 2019 vintage. The ground cover is appearing, even sprouting, through the recent snow we've had over the past week or so. Watch Facebook for some great photos! Soon the vines will start waking up and we start thinking about this year's vintage!
 
If you purchased Futures, you're probably wondering when we're going to celebrate with our Futures parties. Mark your calendars - March 23 & 30 and April 6 & 13. An official invitation is coming to Futures buyers and wine club members. Be sure to make reservations early! Call the tasting room anytime during normal business hours or email Susie today.
 
Come see the start of spring in the Amador Foothills. Daffodils are just starting to bloom and you can catch a glimpse of newborn lambs in the nearby pastures. Kick off the 2019 growing season in our Tasting Room. We are so proud of our people, our vineyards, and our wine.
 
Cheers!
The Story Winery Family
