December 5th marked a very special day for Vellum Wine Craft!!

December 5th was Winemaker Karl Lehmann's birthday!!

We celebrated the day with a chicken tikka curry dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Sonoma - A Taste of the Himalayas. And then it was off to our other hang-out across the Sonoma Plaza, the Girl and The Fig.

Over a couple of Manhattans, Karl and I got into a bar-wide discussion about the repeal of prohibition in 1933.

We were pleased to learn from James (voted best Barkeep in Sonoma) that the 21st Amendment abolishing prohibition was ratified on December 5th, Karl's birthday!!

So the right to drink wine was granted on the same day that Vellum's winemaker was born to make it.

Coincidence? We think not.
