News from ACORN/Betsy and Bill
We want our industry friends and neighbors to know that 2023 will be ACORN’s last year selling our field blend wines. We will be continuing business as usual —welcoming and hosting tasters ( by appointment) and selling ACORN Wines until we’re sold out.
Going forward, we will be focused on growing and selling our Alegría grapes to other wineries that share our commitment to vineyard-centric, sustainably farmed, field-blend wines, and making small lots of wine, for others.
It has been a fabulous adventure! Meeting folks and sharing our wines has filled us with alegría (happiness & joy). Thank you for your referrals, friendship, and, support over the years. We hope to see and thank you in person, this year.
Thank you to our partners for their financial support.
Ron Rubin Winery has financially supported our Wine Road Podcast for the second year - covering all costs associated with producing the show. Without that support we would not have been able to continue. Thank you!
Our show was just listed as #3 in the Top 70 Wine Podcasts.
