Hi GAN EDEN wine lovers! I'm going to try to have a new GAN EDEN.COM web site up and running within a few weeks. Right now, let it be know that I am attempting to identify investors to resurrect GAN EDEN, and have had new labels designed for that purpose. In the meantime, please enjoy my Agua Dulce Winery 2010 OU kosher for Passover wines. These are excellent wines of very good value, despite their per-bottle prices of $30-$50. Each of these wines is a medal winner. The 2010 Agua Dulce Cabernet Sauvignon was entered into the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition and the Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, and won a Bronze and a Silver respectively. The 2010 Agua Dulce Syrah was entered into the International Wine Challenge in London, the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition, and the Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, and took Bronze, Silver and Silver respectively. The 2010 Agua Dulce Zinfandel was unfortunately shut out of the Winemaker Challenge, but won Silvers in both of the others. This is a fantastic showing so far in competition, only having been shut out of 1 medal in 8 entries. Unfortunately, these wines have no future, as subsequent vintages, with the possible exception of the 2011 vintage, will be nonkosher. The good news is that these wines, which have years of improvement ahead of them, will be collectors' items. The bad news is that once they are gone, they're gone.
After 5 years away from winemaking, my abilities have not suffered. From a career standpoint, it was the wrong move to sell the winery (now known as Ross Road Custom Crush) and relocate to Los Angeles. From a family perpective, it was really the only move to make. I retained ownership of the GAN EDEN brand name for wine, and I retained www.ganeden.com . The idea was always to return to winemaking, and I would eventually like to do it with GAN EDEN. Wineries are capital intensive enterprises, and there is money to be made, but not without putting in a considerable amount. I will continue to work towards establishing a full-functioning, dynamic, modern winery in which to produce full-flavored, balanced and elegant GAN EDEN wines of the future, here in California or elsewhere. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, my email, or at 707-494-7095, my cell phone. Thank You.
