First Feliz Noche wine club barbecue a great success in Los Olivos

Feliz Noche held its first wine club barbecue August 18, 2012 at Oak Savanna Vineyard outside Los Olivos. Members and their friends joined Don Felipe and vineyard owner Tom Dittmer for a fun afternoon of food, wine and music. Since then it has become an annual event. This year's BBQ was on September 5th when about 100 Feliz Noche Wine Club members and their friends gathered at the picturesque vineyard. Stay tuned for an announcement of the 2016 event.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine reviews Feliz Noche Syrah, Pinot Noir

Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently published excellent reviews of our 2006 Syrah and our 2007 Pinot Noir. Awarding the Pinot Noir 92 Points, reviewer Steve Heimoff called it "a real beauty that should develop complexity for a decade." Only 50 cases were made, so it isn't expected to last long! A month later, our Syrah earned 91 Points. Heimoff wrote: "What a roll Feliz Noche has been on. They're scoring hit after hit, and this lovely Syrah is right on." Thank you Steve - this is the kind of review we love.
