Thankful…

Enjoy a sweet note from Kathy, our wonderful matriarch! “Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  It means so many different things to me.  In our family we have many birthdays to celebrate during the season.  We also look forward to harvest that fall brings.  Our men work crazy hours and lack sleep but it’s year of work brought to rest.  I love the color changes, the different smells and  the cozy feeling fall brings. November is always a good reminder of all the things I am thankful for.  I am thankful for this:  This November George is not in the hospital and is feeling much better.  That’s a big ...

“Fall is one of my favorite times of year.  It means so many different things to me.  In our family we have many birthdays to celebrate during the season.  We also look forward to harvest that fall brings.  Our men work crazy hours and lack sleep but it’s year of work brought to rest.  I love the color changes, the different smells and  the cozy feeling fall brings.

November is always a good reminder of all the things I am thankful for.  I am thankful for this:  This November George is not in the hospital and is feeling much better.  That’s a big thank you.  We have had a good harvest and wonderful wines from this vintage are on the way.  Our wine club is growing like crazy and we are so thankful.  We have family and friends along with our amazing staff that is here helping us whenever needed.  You see…I could go on and on about being thankful because we are so blessed.

So as this holiday season approaches, take a minute or two and count your blessings!  May your holidays be filled with love, laughter, family and wine!!

Thank you, Kathy”

Continuing the thankful mood, we put up our very own “Harney Lane Thankful Tree” in the winery last week and it’s already covered!  Visitors have been filling out little cards with their own thankful wishes. What a great way to start the holiday season!

 

Cheers to you and yours this Thanksgiving! May you have lots of love, laughter and Harney Lane wine!

 

Summertime at the Winery

We’ve had a busy summer here at Harney Lane. We’d like to catch you up on all the good times we’ve been having at the winery! In May, we celebrated Lodi’s ZinFest weekend, where we welcomed hundreds of wine lovers to Harney Lane.  We hosted our Wine:30 Club Pick Up Party over Memorial Day Weekend, serving up delicious picnicking treats alongside our chilled 2011 Albarino and the very popular 2009 Petite Sirah. In early June, it was Ladies Night Out, where hundreds of ladies came out for an evening of tasting and shopping in our beautiful wine country gift shop.

In early June, it was Ladies Night Out, where hundreds of ladies came out for an evening of tasting and shopping in our beautiful wine country gift shop. Early August was once again time for a great Wine:30 party- this time we treated folks to a Gourmet Popcorn Bar! Guests loved creating their own concoctions, including popcorn tossed with bacon, blue cheese, parsley and Fiori’s seasoning! With the popcorn, members were enjoyed our 2009 Lodi Zinfandel and the exclusive-to-members, Primitivo! The very next weekend, we hosted our annual Crush Pad Jam. This year, we featured Miss Lonely Hearts Band, which the crowd absolutely loved! Guests enjoyed wine-by-the-glass, wood fired pizzas by Guantonio’s and live music all night.
Please enjoy these photographic memories of our fantastic summer. Want to join the fun? Become a Wine:30’er today! You’re clearly missing out if you haven’t joined us yet!!

Merry Christmas!!

Most of us have our Christmas Traditions, don’t we?  In our family, many of our traditions are centered around our Christmas trees.  As long as I can remember, we have traveled as a family….sometimes a few of us and sometimes many….to cut our own Christmas tree. Since I was a small girl and my parents remodeled their home, they have been putting up an 17 to 18 foot tree every year which is not easy to find on a tree lot!  Another tradition in our family…. exchanging ornaments.  Usually its something that reminds us of the person or the year gone by.  When I got married to Kyle and moved out of the house ...

Most of us have our Christmas Traditions, don’t we?  In our family, many of our traditions are centered around our Christmas trees.  As long as I can remember, we have traveled as a family….sometimes a few of us and sometimes many….to cut our own Christmas tree. Since I was a small girl and my parents remodeled their home, they have been putting up an 17 to 18 foot tree every year which is not easy to find on a tree lot!  Another tradition in our family…. exchanging ornaments.  Usually its something that reminds us of the person or the year gone by.  When I got married to Kyle and moved out of the house my mother boxed up all the ornaments I had collected over the years.  I had so many, in fact, that it filled our first Christmas tree.  In response, I , of course, started buying ornaments for Kyle and now for our kids (after all…it was OUR tree) so soon one tree was not enough.  Now our home is graced every year with 2 trees.  Maybe one would be enough if I had room for an 18 foot tree.

Kyle typically thinks all this is a little bit of craziness (Although I don’t remember saying it was reasonable).  This year, however, he surprised me and came home with the ornament pictured above for me!!  He said he picked it because Santa was sitting back relaxing on the moon and that’s what he wished me……a little relaxation!  And that is the biggest thing I wish for all of you this Christmas and into 2012!!  We hope you are all able to stop and relax a little bit! Enjoy your time with family and friends!  Share a few wine:thirties!  Just pause and enjoy!!  That’s really the best tradition to have anyway, isn’t it???  Special times and great memories!!!

We at Harney Lane wish you all a very Merry Christmas AND we wish you health, happiness and time to relax and enjoy in 2012!!!!   CHEERS!!!!

~Jorja, Kyle, George, Kathy, Kirsten(Lizzy), Ian (James), Ranger & Max too!!

p.s.  The fire will most likely be roaring this winter when we’re open if you need to pause and enjoy a wine:thirty with family and friends!!
