After being back in California for just 3 weeks I am leaving to go back to Burgundy tomorrow. I have a 7:45a flight into Paris.
Things have been nice being back in California. Seeing my family, playing with my daughter. Its unexplainable how much I missed my wife and daughter. The thing is, the winemaking isn’t quite over and it’s time to get back to business.
I’ve had a good friend, one of my grape brokers topping up my barrels since I was away. The wines were located in a temporary above ground facility in Saint Aubin while I set up my own facility. This upcoming week, I will be moving the wines to my facility in the center of Nuits Saint Georges. No more winery partners sharing space, just Maison Ilan. The facility also has a nice house attached where we will live starting next year.
Being so far from the wines has made me a bit nervous, impatient and now quite excited to get back to see them.
For now, it’s back to packing. I should make it to Burgundy just in time for the Hospice de Beaune vente de vin this Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by.
