Shhh! Tasting Room Opens Today!

Don't tell anyone but we are opening our tasting room today.

We are very excited about opening the Long Meadow Ranch Winery tasting room in the historic Logan-Ives House, the restored 1874 Gothic Revival farmhouse at 738 Main Street in St. Helena.

If everything goes according to plan, we'll quietly open the doors to the public at 11 AM today.

We'll be offering tastes of our five wines and two olive oils and a short tour of the property. In a few weeks, we'll be offering small plate food pairings from the kitchen.

But, in the meantime, we'll share our family's hospitality and tell our story. I might even play the 1904 upright piano.

The progress at our project site, which we call "Long Meadow Ranch Winery & Farmstead," is now very visible and friends tell us how great they feel when on the grounds.

The historic house has been restored, the landscaping is largely in place, vegetable gardens are partially planted, and the organic nursery has been remodeled. The solar project is producing "juice" and we have moved into our administrative offices upstairs in the farmhouse.

The next step will be opening of Farmstead restaurant early in the new year. But, more about that in another post.

Don't tell anyone, but we would love to have you come by.

We're open until 6 PM.

Can you tell me what kind of piano it is? I saw it and it looks like a Byron Mauzy.

The piano was manufactured in 1904 by E.G. Harrington under the supervision of Hardman Peck & Co.

Re the piano, Byron W. Mauzy was my grandfather. I live in Vancouver, Canada now but have a place in Calistoga, and will be coming down there in mid-June. I'll be sure to stop by your place to taste your wine and also see the piano. Diane K. Mauzy, Professor, University of British Columbia

I also have a Marshall & Wendell Player Piano made for Byron Mauzy. It came up from the Bay area with my in-laws years ago. It belonged to my wife's grandmother who lived in San Francisco. I just put it on Craig's list today for sale.
