Wine Season is right around the corner. We are busy getting our calendar of events planned and making final decisions on our portfolio of wines that will be bottled in the next month. We have three new exciting wines to release this year as well as the mainstays that fill our lineup of dry whites to sweet reds. As always, we have a wine for every palate with some new surprise releases to expand our offerings. Visit us in the tasting room and take advantage of our pre-season merchandise sale. Throughout the month of March, we will have Merch Madness- 30% off all merchandise (excludes Centellino’s, Cigars and wine). It’s a great time to do some gift shopping for the wine lover in your life and enjoy a peaceful, early spring visit to wine country. Wine Club Members! Hopefully you’ve heard by now that our 4 Wine Club-only events have been planned, so mark your calendars! Registration will open next week for both the Wine Sensory 101 and the Field Trip to VB Chocolate! As always, thank you for your support of Noboleis and local wine. Cheers! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cellar Expansion Update Remember when we said that we had to wait several weeks for the walls of concrete to cure?
