Galante Gazette- November 2015

   

It’s Back – But Not For Long

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2014 Almond Flat Pinot Noir! I know the wait has been very long but I am sure you will agree that it was worth it! Made from three distinct clones of estate grown grapes, this remarkable vintage created a full-bodied pinot that exhibits contrasting complexities.  Soft leather and boysenberry fills the nose, followed by a bright burst of stewed berries and a hint of vanilla on the palate. It finishes with a soft elegance. Order your supply now as this very limited bottling won’t last long! A FABULOUS Holiday wine!

Holiday Hootch

I know it is unbelievable that another year-end is creeping up on us, but thank goodness we at least have wine to help us get through the holidays and into a new year! Speaking of which, what better way to help spread the joy but with a bottle or three of Galante Wine! Let us help you make your gift giving easier. Simply send us your holiday gift list and we will be happy to help you customize your gifts and take care of all the shipping for you, along with your personalized messages. We can accommodate everything from single bottles to 3-bottle gift boxes to customized gift baskets. Feel free to email or call Danielle at 800-GALANTE and let the gifts begin!

Jack’s Saddlebag – Thanks to All

As you all probably know, we at Galante Vineyards are not big fans of the point rating system for wines. Naturally, we all love to be recognized for our achievements and appreciated for our products, but the point system, especially when frequently driven by advertising, just doesn’t do it! We so much prefer receiving well thought out tasting notes and comments from reviewers and the press. Our favorite recognition, however, comes from all of you – our customers. Once again this year you have chosen the Galante Vineyards Tasting Room and our Cabernet Sauvignon as the Best in Monterey County in the 2015 Golden Pine Cone Awards. All of us here in Carmel love our local paper, the Pine Cone, and its readership, including its on-line free subscription, now tops 30,000! If you haven’t yet subscribed and want to see what a local newspaper should look like, I urge you to check it out. Thanks again to the Carmel Pine Cone readership and to all of you for continuing to enjoy our wines as much as we love to make them for you.

Sincerely….

Cheers!
Jack Galante
