Lindsey’s direct view from Continuum Estate
January 27th, 2011
Greetings from Continuum Estate!
As I sit here, cross legged on a massive andesite boulder I’m distracted by the beauty that surrounds me. Vineyards in the foreground, San Francisco in the distance…What an amazing part of the world this is!
One of the highlights of working here is to be able to take in these sweeping views every day. Even better is when I get to share the estate with the occasional visitor we are lucky enough to have up here.
Still, our location…or should I say the road to our location does not lend itself well to much traffic and while we can have the occasional car or two bump along up the hill for a visit, we would like to try to bring Continuum to you. And with about 70 percent estate fruit in the 2008 vintage, we now have the ability to bottle this site and take it “on the road.”
This year, in addition to hosting wine dinners, we will be hosting pre-dinner wine tasting receptions at fabulous restaurants throughout the country. Information for all of these events will be posted on our website as well as our Facebook page under the “Events” section. We will also be reaching out to those of you on our mailing list as we schedule events in your neck of the woods.
The first of these events will be taking place on February 17th in San Francisco at Foreign Cinema. Tim Mondavi will be hosting the dinner event and will be pouring four vintages of Continuum! We would love to have you join us and, of course, your friends are always welcome. www.foreigncinema.com. For those on the East Coast, Carissa Mondavi will be hosting two dinners: first on February 23rd in Washington, DC as part of the Capital Wine Festival http://www.capitalwinefestival.com . Then a wonderful meal as Chef Daniel Bruce joins Carissa on February the 24th at the Boston Wine Festival http://www.bostonwinefestival.net . Finally, for those in New York, partner and founder Marcia Mondavi, along with Carissa, will be hosting a dinner on March 1 at the acclaimed Crab Tree Kittle House-http://www.kittlehouse.com.
For those of you that have been calling and e-mailing me…the wait for the 2008 vintage is almost over! The wine is slated to be released on March 1st. If you are new to our mailing list, please mark the date on your calendar as the limited quantity of wine is made available on a first come, first served basis and if the last few years are any indication, it will go quickly.
I’m looking very forward to the year ahead and keeping you in the loop as things develop. Please feel to contact me at anytime. It’s always lovely to hear from you!
All the Best and Cheers,
Direct to Consumer Coordinator
