Waiting for reindeer...
Fall on Pritchard Hill is truly quite like no other place...
Having been a resident of the Napa valley for many years, my experience of the seasonal change has always been from the valley floor. Here, the noise of traffic is replaced by wild turkey gobbles (yes, a rafter of wild turkeys was foraging in front of our office for a few days), city lights are replaced by twinkling stars and sounds of a neighborhood are exchanged for crow caws and hawk screeches. Young deer timidly graze, as squirrels scamper, providing tranquil midday entertainment.
As it seems vines grow by the hour during summer, leaves seem to change color by the day in the fall. One cold weekend can turn remaining foliage on trees to paper thin, rust colored ornaments on trees. Tangled branches of vines begin look like webs, having “caught” the remaining yellowed, tattered leaves.
I invite you to join us for this magical, transitional season. Tours and tastings are less impacted and if Mother Nature cooperates, lunching at the Meadow can be an awesome treat. Call for an appointment – see you on the “Hill”.
An exciting new club level will be introduced in 2013, the Collectors’ Club, with added benefits to members of that level. Twice yearly, members will receive a case of Chappellet Cabernets, consisting of a case of Signature Cabernet and a case of Pritchard Hill Cabernet. Contact us for details.
Best regards for a Happy Holiday Season,
Jo Dayoan, Wine Club Manager
