Now I do have to report on a bit of a snafu on my part. Both of these wines were to be called “Sticks & Stones” (you will see that in the enclosed copy of the offering letter) and that’s also how they were presented to Jeb Dunnuck at THE WINE ADVOCATE and Antonio Galloni at VINOUS MEDIA. But since then we have been contacted by another winery in the Central Coast that apparently holds a trademark on that name. They were concerned that customers might be confused and somehow might buy our wines thinking they were buying theirs and thereby interfering with their business. So naturally we wanted to, and had to, comply with the law and have changed the names. So here are the new names: What was 2012 Syrah “Sticks & Stones” is now 2012 Syrah “Stock” (means stick in German) What was 2012 Grenache “Sticks & Stones” is 2012 Grenache “Stein” (means stone in German). I am sorry about that confusion. As you know we change our names frequently – we give every wine its own, never to be repeated identity / name – and so I never really think about things like fictitious name trademarks and legal stuff like that. But I should…and I will be more careful in the future. I certainly had no intention to rip anyone off or somehow cause commercial or financial harm to another winery. In fact I seldom look outward. We just do our own thing here with little (at least not enough as it turns out) concern as to what others are doing or how they go about their business. So again, please be cognizant of the fact that if you see something written about our 2012 wines and they are referred to as “Sticks & Stones”, these wines are indeed the ones mentioned above – named “Stock” and “Stein” instead.
