VELLUM for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday!!

And for the first time in many years, our family will celebrate Thanksgiving in different cities and time zones...

Despite the distance, it will be a great day of celebration - and though we won't share the same dinner table - we will all be sharing bottles of our family's fantastic 2007 VELLUM Cabernet Sauvignon.

It's not too late to have VELLUM with your turkey dinner.

Place an order this week and your 2007 VELLUM will arrive in time for the festivities!

Or send a magnum to the loved ones who celebrate as our family does this Thanksgiving - separated by distance...but warmly remembered with a sip of wine and a toast to holiday cheer.

Wishing you all the best this Thanksgiving,

- Jeff Mathy and Karl Lehmann


Harvesting VELLUM Cabernet

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Many Thanks for Another Great Year!!

The cool weather was definitely on our side for 2009 and it made my job easier but winemaking is never-entirely easy.

There are many people involved in the process from the vineyard to the winery that help us every step of the way. We're not done yet so some of them will be digging out the tank for pressing of eleven tons of Linstad Cabernet Sauvignon later this week. This is never a simple task so my special thanks in advance for that!

I think I say this every year, but without them VELLUM would not get made. So, I want to thank everyone who supported us and even helped us to successfully complete our 2009 vintage. We also had a great harvest party so I also want to thank all those who were in attendance and helped us celebrate the day.

I think Jeff and I will continue this theme and looking forward to this holiday season, some much deserved rest and cracking open a few prized bottles of 2007 VELLUM.

Thanks Again!

Meanwhile back in the winery...The 2009 wines still have yet to finish their secondary malolactic fermentations before they get put to rest. More on this soon...
