Mojo as good as the juice – Saarloos and Sons
I really dig the snappy videos on this site – in particular The Moment Fruit Becomes Wine from the farmers-turned-uber-cool Saarloos and Sons in Los Olivos (click on the video at the bottom that looks like the lid of a red paint can.) It runs through the process of draining a tank, digging out a tank and pressing the skins.
The wines are juicy but please make note – their mojo is as good as the juice. Check out the Sermons. You are preaching to the choir, my friend! My favorites …
#2) “No tasting notes. We don’t tell YOU what YOU taste.”
#8) “If you are snobby we will kick you out of the house. A snob is defined as: Someone who uses their level of experience or knowledge to make someone new feel inferior or uncomfortable.”
Saarloos and Sons tasting room is a restored craftsman house on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Olivos – just 1.5 hours from Los Angeles – make the trip, you’ll dig it too. Thanks to Pamela at Senorita Vino for directing me to this gem!
