• We’d be remiss not to mention the passing of two iconic California wine legends—Esther Mobley penned a beautiful tribute to Sean Thackrey in the SF Chronicle.

• Martha on the passing of Jonathan Waters: “He was one of the first people that welcomed me into the wine community when I lived in the East Bay (hopped right on into my text messages! And always welcomed a BBQ at our shared Berkeley house). He had an incredibly kind heart. [And he] certainly had an effortless warmth that he shared with everyone—he was the opposite of a gatekeeper in the wine world."

• ICYMI: Wine corks make a great natural fruit fly repellent. ⛔️🪰

• “I thoroughly enjoyed this podcast I listened to last week [...] Patrick [Cambell’s] journey is inspiring not just from his expertise as a grower-producer/vigneron. He is also one of the champions for the Supreme Court verdict that enabled direct shipping to out-of-state consumers [...] Even more inspiring, he was diagnosed with a severe illness leaving him partially paralyzed with limited mobility and found a way to work his vineyards.” —Imane, Distribution Sales Manager

• According to this article, the next sound you may hear when out in the vineyard is not vines rustling or birds chirping, but sheep baaing. 🐑

• Is Rosa one of the best things you drank in May? According to Gear Patrol: Yes.
