Salute! This is such an excellent piece of writing - thanks to Matt for bringing this story to life. I had no idea of all the ups and downs Richard & Thekla have faced and still continue to make some of the best wines, and on their terms. Taking risks is the backbone of being an entreprenuer and I sincerely hope the Sanford's only have success from this point forward. He surely does deserve all of the honors and accolades IMHO. Congratulations. I posted it on my page so my friends back East can learn more about Sanford and Alma Rosa.

Luncheon was nearly sold out as of Friday 4.13 Suggest you call first thing Monday if you're intent on going - there will be no 'at the door' sales. Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket!

It's ALL about starting the conversation and these certainly will do that. Love the humor used here to get the message across.

Such a kind man with a passion for this town and its citizens. He was one of a kind - he will be missed dearly. Sincere condolences to his family on their loss.

Went to the lecture Vic was at and found the info presented fascinating - altho very academic - learning that Japanese ships were familiar with the West Coast due to buying oil from us for eight -nine years before WWII broke out was a new piece of info for me. Lecturer pointed out lots of myths that have sprung up about why Ellwood and drew the conclusion that we had oil (lots of it the picture of the Richmond Oil tank so close to the beach was startling), the ship's captains were familiar with our coastline and Ellwood wasn't guarded like the larger target cities on the coast were - San Francisco, San Diego and L.A. Retaliation would not be swift here as it would have been in larger cities. Amusing anecdote about a small diner up by the abandoned gas station on Hollister in Ellwood became the defacto point of info on the shelling. Go check out the exhibit and see for yourself. I can't wait till the next talk.
