The last few weeks have been INCREDIBLEY stressful, but super exciting at the same time, for Twin Pomegranates Wine!
On Tuesday, I transported the wine from Madera to San Miguel (near Paso Robles, CA) where it will rest for a couple weeks, until bottling. At the moment she’s being chilled to a frigid 35 degrees Fahrenheit… BURRRRR!
On Wednesday, I successfully navigated his 18 wheeler through the seemingly impossible streets of Oakland, actually Emeryville, to pick up Sweetie’s freshly screen-printed wine bottles. Big trucks and long trailers aren’t made for tight city streets. YES, I even jumped a few curbs and brushed a few tree limbs… for the record, no one was injured! BUT, the icing on the cake was the drive home. An hour and a half from being home, I had what truckers call a ‘blow-out’ because when a tire explodes, It BLOWS UP everything around it! The explosion tore off the mud flap, completely mangles the mud flab hanger and splintered the wood floor. Luckily, I was able to baby the trailer and bottles home… SPEW!
All in all, last week was a fantastic week… and we’re inching ourselves, daily, to get closer to bottling ‘Sweetie’!
