Johan Wine Dogs due a Visit!
I’ve been a little perturbed by the doggie scents I get from Valerie after she has been at Johan Vineyards.
She is about to launch her new website, Once Upon a Vine…, where she is following Johan Vineyards for a year, from season to season, as the vines grow, and new plots are planted. A tasting room is developing and the owner, Dag Johan Sundby is building his house on a site that takes in views of the whole valley. The Pinot Noir 2007 is barrel tasting very well, and their chardonnay is pouring great.
But then there’s the wine dogs, I need to meet these guys in person. One can run the whole way from the road to the vineyard like an Olympic medalist, and the other has furry wet paws and a big smile. And then there are the kittens, lots of them! Valerie’s been teaching me not to chase cats. Our neighbor cat, Sponge, was an obliging test case. So it might be time for a visit.
Johan Vineyard’s is going to be open to the public this Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 from noon to 5pm. There will be vineyard tours, live music and of course tasting.
Hope to see you there!
