Yeah! Peak of the Week 2/7/24 Ultimate Blending Session, Citrus, Fast Car

This past weekend, we brought out the pipettes for a unique experience with a special set of customers. Hardy guided them through the fascinating process of blending, resulting in the making of a barrel of their own truly exquisite wine (an old vine Mourvèdre and Carignane blend). In a few months, this personalized blend will be bottled and shipped to their homes. If you've ever dreamt of crafting your own wine, there is one last slot available in 2024.

How it works - gather a group of up to eight individuals and join Hardy for a two-day adventure. This exclusive experience offers: private Yeah! wine tasting and dinner, barrel tasting, a full-day blending session,1 barrel (approximately 25 bottled cases) of your own wine, and weather permitting, a vineyard tour. Don't miss out on this unforgettable opportunity. If you have any questions or need more info, send us an email,

Growing up in Maine, Kate fondly recalls winter highlights from the '80s when her grandmother would send boxes of oranges and grapefruits from Florida. Now living in California, our citrus doesn't have to journey as far. Last week, a thoughtful friend brought us a bag of limes and oranges from her fruit trees, brightening our days. When the sky is gloomy, embrace the tart and tangy flavors of the season—grab some citrus and explore this list of citrus inspired recipes.

Tracy Chapman's recent Grammy performance alongside Luke Combs has left a noteworthy mark, and we can't recommend it enough. If you're diving into her music, don't miss out on her entire self-titled album from 1988—it's a timeless gem worth exploring.

Author, Elizabeth Rush has written The Quickening: Creation and Community at the Ends of the Earth and Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore. A short adaptation of The Quickening, called Glacial Longings caught our attention this week and can be read or listened to here. This piece resonates with reminders, especially amidst the backdrop of recent wild storms in our area, growing awareness of rising sea levels worldwide, our individual writing aspirations, the rigors of parenting, and the profound wisdom of the earth that beckons us to listen closely.

"It is impossible to short-circuit time. Impossible to cheat your way towards more of it. I tell my writing students that in order to write something compelling, you show up time and time again. Good writing, transformative writing, is not about innate talent; it’s about labor, about a temporal investment in the work. Mothering is similar. When I think about how to translate this knowledge to the question of how to recognize the animacy of the more-than-human world, the answer is simple enough: start close to home. Forget the quest towards the sublime mountaintop. Start with the earthworms in the backyard. Start with the soil where we attempt to throw down our wobbly roots. Pay attention to the place where our lives unfold. Where time, lots of it, is at least partially, a given. Here, right here, is where we begin to recognize the Earth as alive."
