Anyone who thinks of winemakers and wine aficionados as pretentiously, overbearingly serious really should meet Ken Wornick.

Fantastic! I simply walked in during an open house and was purely elated with the experience and environment of being back home in the South of Italy. I will surely consider this venue for my next wine purchase (which I bought three boxes), family event (My is family is quite large) or company gathering.

Well done La Honda Winery!

I just want to know when that Super Tuscan is going to be in the bottle and ready to imbibe -- soon, I hope. I'm curious about how Sangiovese fares in the northern Santa Cruz Mountains.

Dear - Luciano Garza and VivaVinoItaliano
Thanks for your kind comments and questions. The 2005 Super-Tuscan blend is sold out, and the 2006 will be released in the early spring of 2009. So it'll be a year of waiting. Sorry. But in a few weeks, our next release is a 2005 Napa Oakville Merlot (yes, that lonely variety that is now reviled in the USA and loved only when hidden inside a $200 Bordeax!). This is a six-barrel lot of super smooth proportions, soft like Merlot, but not flabby, and ready to drink.
Let us know if you'd like to come by for a visit. - Ken

When is some of that world class cabernet, named Lone Hawk, going to be available. I'm getting thirsty.
