April 2023 – Responsible Wine Choices

| Thoughts
Crocuses

As I start this email in later mid-April, Frank and I are sitting outside enjoying our morning coffee together. It is not yet 7:00 a.m. While we love it, it is disconcerting and a reminder that global warming is real. The April issue of our newsletter always features “earth-friendly” wines as we welcome spring and are mindful of our deep connection to this magnificent planet. It has been remarkably forgiving of our disregard and even abuse. We owe it some care, including making consumer choices that consider the practices of the producers. Each of the wines we recommend this month is a product of environmentally-responsible farming and winemaking. It is our pleasure to work with these producers.
