As we saw the final bottles drop into cases in our latest round of bottling, we now look forward to sharing the latest fruits of our labor – and time - with you soon! Bottling is always an exciting adventure, and in a very real sense, it represents time in a bottle.
From their devotion to battling capricious late-spring freezes and tending vines in preparation for the sun-drenched days of summer, John Piña’s vineyard management team spent thousands of hours nurturing the vines. Larry Levin’s meticulous and precise wine-making ensured that the unique qualities of the fruit were heightened, then blended to ensure the one-of-a-kind attributes you enjoy in every bottle of Lawer Family Wines. This is the culmination of our hard work, special care and the year’s unique quirks of nature.
“If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
Till Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.” – Jim Croce
This has been a year of change, both subtle and dramatic. A year of transitions, both thoughtful and positive. And a year to celebrate award-winning recognition and hard-earned success for Lawer Family Wines. Our new labels are a tribute to the dedication, commitment, hard work and the time it has taken to reach these milestones.
We can’t offer these new wines to you just yet as they achieve maturation to overcome bottle shock for the next month or so. With all the agitation from barrel to bottle, each wine needs a little time to settle and coalesce before it’s ready for your wine glass. So stay tuned, we’ll be releasing these wines in August.
We’re thrilled to share this new vintage with you and, as always, hope to join your celebrations from backyard summer BBQs to special dinners with family and friends. For us, wine-making is a toast to mutual success – ours and yours – and a celebration of time well spent…time in a bottle.
