While the weather was not too cooperative or spending time outside with family and friends on Memorial Day weekend, warmer and sunnier days do lie ahead for the coming weekend and beyond. It is time to fire up the grill, fill your plate with its delights and summer bounty, and to add a glass or two of wine.
This coming Sunday, May 9, 2021, is Mother’s Day, so let us raise a glass of wine and celebrate all the women in our live—whether they are a mother by birth, by adoption, or by their kind, caring, and nurturing spirit. Our suggestion is to toast moms with women-made wine or cider.

Saturday March 27, 2021, begins the seven-day most sacred, and widely observed holiday of Passover (Pesah or Pesach) that commemorates the Israelites’ liberation from 400 years of slavery in Egypt.
