Summer Solstice, Essay, Tinned Fish

Friday, 6/23, we are opening the treasure chest of library wines, which is pretty unheard of given the tiny quantities of our wines, but recent warm evenings spent with friends talking and opening bottles late into the night inspired us to pull out the key.

We’ve assembled ten mixed cases of Yeah! wines for your special meals and extradimensional enjoyment. Friday, 6/23, at 7AM PT, this 2023 Extra Special Yeah! Case will be released to the Yeah! mailing list.

  • 1 bottle 2019 After Midnight Red
  • 1 bottle 2021 Astral Plane Old Vine Mourvèdre
  • 1 bottle 2020 Innervisions Red
  • 1 bottle 2020 Brosseau Vineyard Chenin Blanc
  • 1 bottle 2020 Evangelho Mourvèdre
  • 1 bottle 2020 Barbdawg Yeah!
  • 1 bottle 2020 Semdawg Yeah!
  • 1 bottle 2021 Five Points Red
  • 1 bottle 2021 Nightlight Old Vines Red
  • 1 bottle 2019 Mo' Yeah! Mourvèdre
  • 1 bottle 2021 Mighty High
  • 1 bottle 2022 Marvelous Mourvèdre

Set your alarm for 6/23 @ 7AM PT. There are only 10 of these cases.

Happy Solstice
Today marks the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. We welcome the longest day of the year and plan to bathe in the sunlight and warmth. You can find some history and science about this day here. It’s a good night to open a bottle you have been saving and get to work setting intentions and welcoming in the light of the season.

This essay in Emergence Magazine by geologist-writer and Professor, Lauret Edith Savoy, “surfaces tectonic movements alongside the deliberate construction of race in colonial America—and reckons with her own inheritances in this enduring terrain.” So often the happenings of place and that of human culture are separated and Savoy beautifully brings us back into the ground that we live upon.

You can’t go wrong with summer sunsets and killer tinned fish. We are glad to see that two of our favorites, Patagonia Provisions and José Gourmet made this list. We suggest throwing a party and opening them all. They will make you happy straight from the tin or accompanied by a cracker or crusty baguette - a must have this summer!
