Is Winter Coming?
Despite some frost in the canyons this morning, we've had a mild fall with just a few spritzes of rain. We are grateful that green grass has started in most places on the Ranch but we're worried about the relatively dry, unseasonably warm weather. At Woodstock back in '69, young people in a drug-addled frenzy chanted for "No Rain." Here, now, in the Adelaida hills, we old farts, somewhat wine-addled, are definitely chanting for MORE RAIN! We'd even take snow at this point, like we received in February of 2006.
Holiday Gift Specials
Whether you are appreciating your loved ones or treating yourself this holiday season, think about our vivid Rangeland Wines, the goodness of our grass-fed meats and the pristine slice of old California that we are conserving here at Adelaida Springs Ranch. For delivery by Christmas, place out of state orders by December 15. California, Nevada and Arizona are served by Golden State Overnight, so we should be able to fulfill Christmas wine orders to these states up until December 19.
Mistletoe Specials: Two Bottles for $50 or 20% off by the Case
We are offering a Mistletoe special this month; 2 bottles of 2015 Mistletoe for $50, a $14 savings before your club discount. This 2015 vintage includes Cabernet Sauvignon 46%, Syrah 27% and Tannat 27%. The Tannat seems to give this wine a spicy complexity and tart vivacity that pairs wonderfully with rich foods, which--at this price-- includes your favorite night pizza any night of the week. You can place multiple orders to different addresses to knock out your holiday gift list. Order here.
Order a full case of Mistletoe and get 20%, on top of your club discount. This lowers the price below $20 per bottle for wine or meat club members, so stock up now.
Bordeaux Special: 3 bottles for $110
We've updated the Bordeaux special to inlude the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a nicely fruit forward but still balanced rendition. The 3 bottle selection also includes the 2013 Watershed (Cab, Cab Franc, Merlot and Petite Verdot) and 2013 Limestone Reserve Cabernet, for $110--that's a savings of $20 before your club discount! Order here.

For California, Nevada and Arizona shipping addresses we have begun to use Golden State Overnight for meat shipping.
