I hope this finds you safe and healthy. This whole week felt like a constant pivot between new COVID restrictions and managing another heat dome with temperatures above 90 degrees. Sadly, we had to cancel our last Pizza Friday of the summer. But the heat seems to be behind us and now we need ot move forward and understand how it has affected the 2021 vintage. Heat can speed us up or it could also shut the vines down for a bit. Either way, we are anticipating a smaller than normal yield but amazingly delicious, concentrated fruit!
Due to COVID, we are back to masks indoors under a State mandate. Our trip to Sicily has been postponed until October 2022. I am grateful that we invested in the air scrubbing purification system last year to ease the anxiety of our guests and team when they are indoors. And now with these cooler temperatures, it feels great to be outside.
The team has been hard at work to bring you some amazing events! Read on and enjoy!
BEYOND BROOKS 2021-2022
Last year, I took a big risk to start a new program in an unknown COVID world. I wanted to do something unique, something that supported other like-minded businesses. To my surprise, the Beyond Brooks program was a success more than I could have ever imagined. AND I had a blast and learned so much from all of our partners! I am super excited to announce to you Beyond Brooks 2021-2022 SEASON 2!
This year, we are completely dialed into every partner, every product, every wine, and every date! We are exploring so many amazing pairing ideas from BBQ sauce to spirits aged in our Pinot Noir barrels. We have toured many of partner facilities and planned events rich in people, place and product.
For $99 a month plus shipping, your Beyond Brooks shipments will include 2 bottles of Brooks wine specifically curated for the following partners:
- September – Som Cordial and The Dry Goods Beverage Company
- October – The Joy of Cooking Cookbook
- November – Steve Smith Tea
- December – Olympia Provisions
- January – Camas Country Mill
- February – Woodblock Chocolate
- March – Kiss the Ground
- April – Bull Run Distilling
- May – Felton & Mary’s
This year we are offering you a choice between 2 gifts when you purchase the entire season.
Last year, we had over 600 different people participate in at least one Beyond Brooks event. This year, we are anticipating 2 times as many friends. We subscribe to a unique virtual event platform (not Zoom!) that is an excellent experience for our guests. Here is what a few folks had to say about Beyond Brooks from Season One.
$5 for every purchase will go back to 1% For The Planet and Kiss The Ground! I am so excited about our second season! A huge shout out to our team for bringing it all together in advance!
