 Yates Family Vineyard Update

Hello From Yates Family Vineyard,

We hope everyone is falling into the "new" normal of life from Quarantine. Some of you are getting back to a quasi-normal, others are still shelter-in-place, while others are feeling done with this all! No matter where you are at, we hope you and your loved ones are healthy and happy!

We are staying busy even with Shelter-in-place still in effect in CA, the vines are happily growing and moving towards bloom which usually takes place in June. The wine is gearing up for bottling which is taking place this week, we are excited to see the outcome of the 2018 vintage.  Thank you for all who have been supporting us through these times, we appreciate it and hope to see you in Napa soon when everything opens up!

Cheers,  All of Us at Yates

May is for Mary (it’s her birthday Month!)
We are celebrating Mary Yates this month and a Special on our Fleur de Veeder "Merlot."  It is a month of M’s around here! Learn a little about Mary Yates below and our May Special. If you don’t know Mary Yates, she is the usually the lady behind the communications if it’s calling the office or sending an email. Mary has been working with her family since 2007 and still enjoys it, sometimes icon smile Yates Family Vineyard Update

How do you usually spend your birthday?
Since my birthday is always close to Memorial Day or is Memorial Day (like this year), I try to plan a trip with the family. Usually it includes camping, a lake, and the family.

If you aren’t drinking wine, what is in your glass?
Is this a trick question (haha), if I am not drinking wine, I would say I enjoy a martini, half vodka half gin (aka a Vesper) with a lemon twist or a Dark and Stormy.

Where can we find you on Friday evening?
Well during the Summer, we have Friday Nite Lights, a night of music down by the Napa River at Veterans park featuring small local bands. Todd and I take the kids down there almost every Friday to hang out together, dance a little (minus Todd, he is not much of a dancer!), and picnic. Usually with a bottle of Viognier and Fleur de Veeder “Merlot.” 

Mary if you were stranded on a desert island, what wine would you take with you?
Oh, that is an easy one, I would take our Cheval “Cabernet Franc.” It is such a unique wine with a lot of complexity and I think it almost always changes with whatever meal you have to accompany it. I wouldn’t get tired of it then!

Any last comments?
Yes, I wanted to give a shout out to my baby niece, Lillian Silva ,Whitney’s daughter as she was considering coming on my birthday but decided the night before was better, Happy 2nd Birthday Lil!!
