As we watch the ball drop in Time Square, we look back at the year. We had some major excitement here in Napa Valley. Looking back at the early morning in August where we awoke to an earthquake measuring at 6.0 on the moment magnitude scale. The tremor's epicenter was located south of Napa, approximately 3.7 miles (6.0 km) northwest of American Canyon near the West Napa Fault, beneath the Napa Valley Marina on Milton Road, just west of the Napa County Airport.
We are grateful, as damage from the quake was quite minimal to our cellar, and we were able to continue winemaking with no delay. Our winemaking team has been blessed with two new additions Jose & Sergio. These two talented gentlemen allow Barb & Tim to focus on streamlining our winemaking process making sure each barrel is getting all the love it needs.
2015 is full of possibilities as we get to introduce our fans to some fantastic new releases. Kristen has been working on some magically delicious new wines that add a whole new dimension to the Spell Wine portfolio. Discovering some amazing new vineyard sites, she looks forward to tantalizing your taste buds with some vivacious vino.
