The Brandts spent a year in the Rhone Valley learning to make wine from Eric Texier


That was interesting. Has anyone tried their wine?

The part about great wine emanating from the East Bay is also a catchy slogan, but technically the grapes come from all the Usual Suspect CA regions..

We were all hoping you had! Get out there and give your palate up for the sake of science!

Rashaan,
The shoppe where I work just received today two boxes of samples Steve Edmunds graciously provided. They arrived quite cool, so we'll let them sit for a day or two and pop some corks later in the week...travel shock be damned! I'll try to post some notes then. I've heard a lot of great reports on ESJ and we look forward to representing them in Indiana...assuming they pass the palate test.

I was actually asking about the A Donkey and Goat wines.

But that's ok, feel free to regale us with ESJ TNs..

Whoops. English as a first language can be a challenge at times for me.

No worries Bill, English gets the best of us all. Heck, the Aussies stopped speaking it years ago! :lol:
