Twin Oaks Cellars: Two Stellar Pinot Noirs
We are big fans of this California boutique winery that produces small quantities of high quality Pinot Noir. Twin Oaks Cellars is owned and operated by Mark Weiner who does a magnificent job in selecting top quality vineyards and hand crafting his vineyard-designated wines. Mark’s Pinot Noir winemaking skills were acquired working with Ed Kurtzman, Brian Loring, Adam Lee and other top producers. He has chosen to remain a small producer in order to focus on producing unique, artisanal wines from great fruit sources. These two releases are single vineyard Pinot Noirs from the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Rita Hills, both outstanding growing areas for Pinot. The famed Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, highlighted in our Report # 20, is the source of Mark’s Santa Lucia Highlands fruit. The organically farmed La Encantada Vineyard is the fruit source for the Santa Rita Hills. Both the Sleepy Hollow and La Encantada vineyards are located in the coolest parts of their respective appellations.

Wine 'Doggy Bag' Regulations in Iowa
Senate Bill 447 provides that a person holding a liquor control license may permit the removal one unsealed bottle of wine if the customer has purchased and consumed a portion of the wine on the premises and the licensee securely reseals such bottle in a bag designed so that it is visibly apparent that the resealed bottled of wine has not been tampered with.
