Dear Reader,

I want to thank all our Veterans that have sacrificed so much of their time, their families, their health, their limbs, and even at times their minds and lives. I have two sons, Jason and Aaron who have served overseas, Jason, who was in the Navy, was in the first wave to go to the Middle East in 2001. Aaron has served 15 months overseas and then one year in the Middle East with the Air Force. Both would do it again and both don’t think they sacrificed enough. Like the many solders that come into the store, they all have a common thread; humility or humbleness, courteous, respectful and most do not say how much they have sacrificed because they don’t think they have done enough and most would do it all again.

Self-sacrifice may also be more broadly defined as selflessness, or the readiness to inflict pain upon yourself to save others.

I like to see a man or women proud of the place in which they lives. I like to see a man or a woman live so that their place will be proud of them. WE ARE PROUD OF OUR VETERANS! Thank you for all your sacrifices for us and others!

Friday 4:30 to 6:30 & Saturday 1 to 6 PM
Three decades ago, the California Central Coast had yet to emerge as one of North America’s world-class winegrowing regions. With little history or viticultural precedent, planting on the Central Coast was a gamble. One of an early handful of pioneers, Jerry Lohr was among the first to realize the vast, untapped potential of this now-acclaimed region with the establishment of J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines.

J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines is dedicated to producing flavorful wines that are the finest examples of quality and flavor from our given appellations.

Today, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines includes more than 900 acres of cool-climate estate vineyards in Monterey County, with an emphasis on Chardonnay, Riesling, Valdiguié and Pinot Noir, 2,000 acres in Paso Robles dedicated to Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Sirah and other red varietals, and 33 acres in Napa Valley, highlighting Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc. From this rich and diverse palette of sustainably farmed estate fruit, J. Lohr crafts wines showcasing bold, concentrated flavors and a vibrant sense of place. The winery offers four tiers of award-winning wines: J. Lohr Estates, J. Lohr Vineyard Series and J. Lohr Cuvée Series. New to the signature portfolio is J. Lohr Gesture limited-release wines.

Here is our line-up for the weekend:

  • J. Lohr Sauvignon Blanc Carol’s Vineyard
  • J. Lohr Arroya Vista Chardonnay
  • J. Lohr Valdigue Wildflower
  • J. Lohr Falcon’s Perch Pinot Noir
  • J. Lohr Los Osos Merlot
  • J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah
  • J. Lohr Hilltopr Cabernet Sauvignon

Come by and bring your friends and find some wines perfect for Thanksgiving!
