Sell No Wine Before Its Time

Great news for the Mountain Winery in Saratoga. Best know for being one of the best venues to see live music in the Bay Area. I've enjoyed every single show I've seen there immensely: Bonnie Raitt, Jewell, Cowboy Junkies, Neville Brothers, Bill Maher and more . . . . But, as a bit of a misnomer, their wine was anything but memorable.

It turns out that the wine bottled under the Mountain Winery label hasn't been made from the vineyards on the property for years. That is about to change. Let's hope the quality of the wine will match that of the setting and performers in time. Read more from Laurie Daniel of the SJ Mercury News.
