  1. Just had your Woodruf pinot that I picked up at 41st ave liquors. It was exceptional. When I told that to Thom, he mentioned that many of your vineyards are dry-farmed. We dry farm tomatoes up at Molino Creek Farm in Davenport so I have a soft-spot for it!

    Keep up the great work. Looking forward to trying some of your other wines.

  2. Just had my first bottle of Ghostwriter Woodruff 2010 Pinot; I picked it up from Whole Foods San Francisco. It’s been on my “to be tried” list for a few weeks now, after it was mentioned in SF Gate’s 100 Best Wines. It’s delicious, gentle and slightly peppery. Thank you. I hope to visit the vineyard soon.
