We've had the honor Redmon Wine poured at many charity events over the years, but the Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego did it well at the Hotel Del Mar in San Diego over the weekend of January 26th. Our wines were poured by acrobats hanging from the ceiling - WOW!!

Acrobats hung from the ceiling and poured our Chardonnay and Cabernet for guests. If you look closely, you can see the distinct shape of our Chardonnay bottle in the picture!



We thought it would be fun to share the experience.

Happy New Year!!

Scott, Lisa and Shelby

Entries are in for the 2013 Harvest Contest. We asked Redmon fans to write us with their favorite story about an experience with our wines and below are stories from the top three contestents. The winner will enjoy a weekend at the Redmon Ranch in St. Helena. We'd love to hear from you with your favorite of the three:

DID YOU DRINK MY DADDY'S WINE!?!?! - So...Redmon wine almost broke up two blood brothers in Texas, sworn together by a fraternity. Dramatic enough for you? ..... imagine:

I was 23, recent grad of TCU, heading to a party y'all in Lake Conroe. After a night of celebrating an engagement of a frat bro, said bro offers my girlfriend and I a bottle of Redmon wine out of the extensive collection. Knowing a bit about Napa wines, I'm happy to accept. We drink, not so much eat, but we are merry. Then... the new fiance sees the empty bottle of Redmon and begins to freak out! She asks, "Who drank this bottle, because...YOU are going to have to answer to Larry!" After that, it got real awkward. We then had to drive home 4 hours to Dallas, TX to get away from the situation to avoid further confrontation.

THE SECRET IS OUT... - Over 25 years ago a Frenchman, Francois Pasquier, had a unique idea for a private dinner party. He would assemble a list of his friends and contacts, notify them to standby for information of a secret public location where they would set up their own dinner, enjoy a great evening of fellowship, then remove their place settings leaving the area just as they found it. Ah, but there was one more etat (condition). In order to recognize the others attending the clandestine party in this public setting, all were to dress in white - ALL white. Pasquier disclosed the location just hours before the start of the dinner party, the guests found each other, in a fashion that would be called a “Smart Mob” today, and enjoyed an evening reminiscent of elegance of French court society. Departing that night many of the guests wanted to elevate this affair to the status of a tradition. And, in fact, “Le Diner en Blanc” now attracts thousands to gatherings all over the world who enjoy a brief evening of the camaraderie of sharing an experience of beauty and good taste.

What does that have to do with the singular pleasure of enjoying Redmon wines" Well, it just so happens that San Francisco conducts its own version of this mass chic picnic in very public places. This year, just last week in fact, “Le Diner a San Francisco” was held at Civic Center Plaza. Three thousand invited guests were alerted to this secret location just hours before the start of the affair. Prior to this the enlightened had spent, in many cases, months preparing table setting commensurate with the decorum of the evening. Then, beginning at 5pm all began to assemble at the Plaza to busily prepare their tables for the ritual of the waiving of the napkins to signal the start of fine dining and a truly enchanted evening – much to the astonishment, of course, to all those passing by.

Our table was adorned by a prized bottle of Redmon 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. We love sharing our “secret” - the best Cab we have ever tasted - with the unenlightened. And, the reaction is always the same. ALL who sample want to know more about the origin, heritage and availability of this delicious king of the red varietals.So, the secret is out among our guests who share a glass with us; that Redmon Cab befits the most discriminating taste and most magical moments.

REDMON IS AN AMAZING LAST NAME!! - Several years back, we were introduced to Redmon wines by a neighbor who works in the wine industry. He gave my husband an apron with the Redmon logo and name on it and boasted that their 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon had just been named number 30 out of the best 100 wines in the world. We were surprised to see the unique spelling of the name as our surname is Redmon as well. Shortly thereafter, my husband called Lisa to learn more about the winery. She invited us to bring our family to join her for a private wine tasting.

My husband and I raised our four Redmon daughters in Sacramento, California. As adults they scattered throughout the country, with our oldest remaining in Sacramento, the two middle girls living in the Los Angeles area, and our youngest living in Brooklyn, New York. Coming home for Christmas is our family’s favorite tradition. Shortly before the holiday in 2011, when the girls were home for Christmas, we took Lisa up on her generous offer and had a wine tasting with two of our daughters and their husbands. Our family fell in love with the wine, and our daughters loved sharing their “Redmon-girl” stories with Lisa. At the end of the day, Lisa gave each of us a Redmon apron.
Our four girls maintained a deep connection to each other and all things Redmon. The oldest two kept their maiden name and the youngest hyphenated hers. Their husbands always joke how they have been “tamed into submission” and are frequently called Mr. Redmon when visiting Sacramento. During our week-long Christmas celebration, each of our daughters and their husbands prepare a unique dinner for the entire brood. These dinners are always complimented by a special bottle of Redmon wine from our cellar. Attached is my favorite picture. As you can see, I am surrounded by two of my “Redmon” sons-in-law (not-so-proudly) wearing their Redmon aprons!

We raised our girls to love their sisters, their Redmon name, and great wine. There is no better way to celebrate our family than with a bottle of Redmon.
Thanks for your feedback!!

Take a good look at the "before shot" because Redmon Wines has big plans for renovation of the ranch house courtyard on Dowdell Lane.  We met with our favorite local designer this week and have come up with some great ideas for an outside entertaining area.

We're looking at outdoor couches, bar, fire pits on top a beautiful crushed granite floor.  Stay tuned for more information on the progress of this project.  We're hoping to have it finished by spring.

Redmon Wines is happy to announce that we are an official partner of The Harvest Inn.  This lodge is one of my favorite in the valley as it's one of St. Helena's first luxury hotels and brings back lots of fond memories of it's opening.

I was able to visit the hotel again last week to attend their annual Christmas party and was again taken by the warm environment.  The dark woods, rock fireplaces and rich colors create an amazing feel to the shared areas.  The room are also warm and inviting.  The accomodations at the back of their propetry with vineyard views are just a stones throw from the Redmon 3 1/2 acre vineyard from which we produce our Estate Cabernet.

As a partner, Redmon Wines is able to offer our customers preferred rates for this property.  If you are interested in booking a room, feel free to click on the link below to view this special pricing:

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!!

Hope you had a wonderful turkey day and were able to celebrate with some Redmon wine.  We thought it would be fun to share with you a bit about what the Redmon/Mangelson family did over the long weekend - we picked olives for pressing.  If you have visited us in St. Helena, you might recall that we have 15 beautiful olive trees on our property.  We decided to harvest them for the first time this year and will press them next week to make olive oil.

Redmon Wines began as a home winemaking experiment in a garage 12 years ago. Similar to the wine project in those early years, we are just having some fun and learning about the process of making oil. Come see us in 2013 and we'll let you taste and give us your opinion on the oil.


Stay tuned for information about our 2012 Wood Gift Boxes. We will email out specifics next week.


Regards,

Scott and Lisa
