Harry won the photo contest! Our wine is in the Top 100.

Our son Harry started taking a photography class last year as an elective at school. In general, he's very observant, and it turns out he has quite a knack for photography. We asked you all to vote on which of Harry's photos he should enter in a photography contest. Well, we are proud to say that, thanks to all of the input, Harry got 2nd place and a $100 cash award!

 And last year, he got 2nd place in the Napa County Cover Art contest for the annual crop report and won $150....he's doing very well so far!

And in the world of wine, we are very excited to be included in the San Francisco Chronicle's list of the Top 100 Wines of 2011. Here is what they had to say about the wine:

2010 Matthiasson Napa Valley White Wine ($35, 12.5%): 
When not doing some of the best vineyard work in Napa, Steve Matthiasson keeps fine-tuning his brilliant white blend, this time a co-fermented mix of Sauvignon Blanc, Ribolla Gialla, Semillon and Tocai Friulano. It's more subtle and focused than ever, and time in bottle has given flesh to steely chive, key lime and orange notes. It'll be even better in a year — no surprise considering its inspiration in the long-aging whites of Italy and Bordeaux.
