Hi everybody. Sonadora, it sounds like it's Joel you should be jealous of--I sure am--with his case of Escafeld PV. Josh, I have that zin to look forward to! And Elsbeth, you are kind to offer but I'll be "home" in June to stock up on everything I need. But one day we'll have to have a Liverpool exchange. When I told my mom where the pub was, she said "I'm sure your grandfather and uncle would know it!"

Thanks, Dr Debs, for such a wonderful post! I'm so glad you enjoyed the PV and I'd love to hear more about your Liverpool roots! I'm travelling back there next month to take my daughters home to see the sights and visit their Grandparents--let me know if there's anything I can bring back!

I hosted a tasting recently at which we sampled all of Escafeld's wines that are offered at WineQ, together with a few wines from other wineries as well.

All of our tasters (there were about 8 of us) enjoyed the Petit Verdot a lot, especially given its modest price point.

Somewhat surprisingly, many of us liked Escafeld's 2003 Zinfandel even better -- including one seasoned wine drinker who described himself as "not normally a Zin fan."

I took a straw poll at the end, and all but one of our eight tasters rated Escafeld's Zin as their favorite wine of the tasting.

Ever since I found them through WineQ its become my Friday Night tradition...come home from work, crack open the Escafeld PV and have a glass.

I've been buying it by the case and it 100% exemplifies why I support any business that allows me to discover and supports the wonderful boutique wineries (a la WineQ)!

I think I saw a review by WineHiker (Russ) who raves about it as well.

I'm jealous! I really want to get my hands on a bottle, but sadly they don't ship to VA. Though I did get my WineQ with my Twisted Oak in it!
