Old School

TOPGUN_Mug

Kicking it old school for this morning's bottling.  Vintage TOPGUN mug with both the Hornet and the now retired big fighter, AKA the F-14 Tomcat.  Mug has seen a little wear since I picked it up in January 2000 but still does the job, and looks good doing it.

Bottled some great new wines and will update the blog with some pics and info in the next couple days.

Privileged to Help the Battle Buddy Foundation and Host Team Red, White, and Blue

We were fortunate to be able to help The Battle Buddy Foundation at their recent Scotch and Cigar event at the TPC Valencia in Santa Clarita.  We know it was Scotch-centric, but the Volatus wines were a perfect pair with the food and cigars.

If you are not familiar with The Battle Buddy Foundation, they are an organization dedicated to providing dogs to service disabled combat veterans.  I have been involved with Battle Buddy for over two years now and am very impressed with everyone and, most importantly, the impact they have on veterans' lives.  Please take a look at their website and get involved if you can. 

As a bonus, look for a fun and delicious Volatus and Battle Buddy project in the spring of 2018.

We also had a great time with representatives from Team Red, White, and Blue. John and Garrett, pictured above, were running and assisting with the recent Old Glory Relay.

It was a tremendous pleasure to meet them and I encourage everyone to get involved with a local Team Red, White, and Blue group.
