Redmon Wines was excited to show our wines at a dinner for 75 people in San Clemente, CA last weekend at the Bella Collina Gold and Country Club. The club was beautiful and the food was amazing.
The Chef paired our 2009 Chardonnay with Diver Scallops, Baby Brussel Sprout Hash, Sweet Pumpkin and Puree and Bacon Vinaigrette. The 2008 Cabernet Blend paired beautifully with Lamb Tenderloin Roasted Acorn Squash, Romanesco And Port Wine Syrup. Everyone was thrilled with the menu and we had a beautiful evening.
Thank you to our friend and customer Frank and Bette Brooks for inviting us!!

Harvest is right around the corner and we would like to extend an invite to come experience the picking and crushing of our grapes with the Redmon crew. Mother nature has been a bit sporadic this year with the weather. We’ve had some early cooling and rain and we are anxiously awaiting the heat and final ripening of the fruit. We expect to pick next week sometime, although we won’t know the exact day until just a few days beforehand. If you have an interest in joining us this year, please reply by email and we will put your name on a list of folks we will contact when we have the exact date locked in. We usually start at about 7:30 am and pick until 11 or 12 noon. We’ll stop for lunch and then take the fruit to Cardinale Winery where we do the sort and crush in the afternoon. Our company is still small enough that we can invite our customers out each year. We usually have about 10 people join and it's a whole lot of fun. Hope to see you there!! Regards, Scott and Lisa

Redmon Wines is pleased to release 200 cases of our 2009 Chardonnay. The inaugral release of this wine sold quickly last year as our customers seemed to appreciate the style of this medium bodied Chardonnay that shows just the right balance of oak and butter.
Crisp and fuity, the flavors of this wine combine hints of melon, white peach and apple balanced with notes of lychee nut and tropical fruits. The french oak barrles add a touch of almond and vanilla.
The price is $39/bottle or $468/case and is available online or by calling Lisa at 707-235-0282.
Stay tuned for information on our Harvest party in September where we will be pouring this Chardonnay.

Scott and I had the chance to pour our wines at an amazing party this weekend held a clients' home in Scottsdale, AZ. The group shared cooking duties and prepared an amazing menu of crabcakes with remoulade, stuffed mushroom with turkey sausage, beef tenderloin with a cabernet sauce served with hash brown potatoes Au casserole and grilled asparagus. The three wines paired beautifully with each course. My favorite might have been the custom red velvet mini cakes dipped in white chocolate and topped with the Redmon "R" in red for dessert.
We had a fun night educating this group of 25 on the Napa Valley and the release of our 2008 Cabernets. The group was a whole bunch of fun, the decor was beautiful and the food was delicious. We hope to get invited back again!!!

Redmon Wines was thrilled to participate in The Guardsman's annual event in San Francisco this year. The organization is a wonderful group of men who are helping to fund children's education.
We poured both our Estate Cabernet and our new Cabernet Blend. These newly released 2008's were a huge sucess.

Redmon Wines is excited to release two beautiful Cabernet's this week. We have produced only 250 cases of each and expect it to go fast.
We are thrilled with the outcome of the Estate Cabernet this vintage and feel that the improvements we have made in the vineyard over the past years are really paying off. When we first took over the vineyard in 1999, we spent our first years updating the farming on our amazing 3 ½ acre piece of land. We changed the vines from head trained to trellis, put in a new irrigation system and paired our yield back from four tons per acre to two tons per acre.
We are also excited to release our first Cabernet Blend. We've been working hard on this project over the last years and were able to source fruit from two lovely, small family farms in both Rutherford and St. Helena. The blend is 81% Cabernet and 9 1/2% of each Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The wine is showing beautifully and will be one that will really evolve over time.
Both wines are available on our webiste at www.redmonwines.com. Stay tuned for information about the release of our 2009 Chardonnay in early July.
