MISSION CELLARS WINERY
Newsletter for August 2022
What's happening at the winery
Peter has been keeping an eye on the wine cache. He's been handling the usual testing and tasting. We had some trouble with our new Kegerator so we got a replacement unit. Peter has it all hooked up now and it's chilling our white wines to perfection. The old Slushie machine is now up and running and so we'll have a great supply of Slushies this weekend.
We also replenished our bottle stock so we have lots of wine in the tasting room and we'll be bottling a couple new wines soon. All is well at the winery.
Here's Peter testing and tasting.
We have a lot of barrels full of wine that we continually care for.
Pouring out a lot of Slushies each day......

Better than this, I hope......
When it's hot outside, we still have a nice cool tasting room. It's a great little get away, where you can relax and enjoy a tasty glass of wine. Let's cool off at The Mission.
On another musical front.....
Strings and Vines
The first guitar lesson was held at The Mission on July 21st and it was a good lesson enjoyed by those who attended. When you get a glass of wine with the lesson, how could you go wrong? The next one will be held on Thursday, August 18th from 7 to 8PM. The sessions are intended for beginners or for those who would just like to brush up on skills.
MIke Slayen is one of the musicians who has played for you at The Mission on Sunday's. His adult lessons are just $25 for an hour (7 to 8PM) and include a glass of wine of your choice. This is a group setting with small groups of 5 to 10 people and one lesson given at the winery each month. Please bring your own guitar. Other arrangements can be made with Mike directly.
Here they are enjoying a lesson and a glass.
