  1. Speaking of Ice Wine, for these warm summer days, we do what would make winemakers aghast: add ice to our wine. But our ice is a bit different. We take our "house white" – an inexpensive Chardonnay – and pour it into ice cube trays. When we want a nice, really cold glass of Chard, we pop two or three iced wine cubes in the glass and we cool down mighty fast. No question that it changes the wine a little, making it seem more concentrated and intense in a slightly fake way. It can also drop more tartrates that wineries don’t remove because they don’t actually freeze wine during cold stabilization. Fun!

    What a great idea! you always has ones! Hope you’re staying cool in the Lodi AVA. I’ve almost been feeling guilty about the lovely weather we’re having!
