2010: Looking Forward

As 2010 dawns, a new year of wonderful wines await. But first a few words about 2009:

The last couple of years, especially 2009, have been difficult for many people. On behalf of all of us at Steven Kent Winery, I just want to thank everyone for their very generous support. We are honored by your continued commitment to our mission to create world-class wines from the Livermore Valley.

2010 will see:

  • Not only our first Malbec (a blend for members of the Future Release Program in February; and a 100% Small Lot Offering in May) but also our ninth vintage of Sangiovese for Collector's Circle members in March.
  • Radius, a blend that has morphed from predominantly Barbera to a mix of Bordeaux varieties, will be a Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend starting with its fifth incarnation. 
  • Our Second Open House event will take place on May 15th and will feature the release of our Small Lot Offering Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec among others. 
  • There are a number of Wine Dinners on the calendar as well. We'll let you know, soon, when the first dinner is scheduled.
We look forward to sharing these wonderful wines and occasions with you in the coming year. Cheers to a great 2010!
