The Moments

As the dust settles and I return to my daily routine, I look back at the Triples Alley experience with a great sense of awe. I've been to dozens of games, seen amazing plays, and even sipped on some spectacular wine at the ballpark. But the moment I will never forget is walking along the field with a Giants’ staff member and dirtying my boots with the dust of champions. A few feet from this Giants team, this legendary, World Champions Giants team. The stands are full, everyone is waiting for the MVP ceremony to begin and I feel like I’m part of the action.  Looking up, taking it all in, I cemented that moment forever into my mind and my baseball loving heart.

As I settled into my seat, midway up in section 103, the MVP ceremony began. I was prepared for Buster and his family to be there in attendance, but I wasn't prepared for the other 4 Giants MVP’s who joined him on the field; Jeff Kent, Kevin Mitchell, Willie McCovey and Willie Mays.  I cheered and clapped and smiled, honored to be at the best ballpark in the country, celebrating a fantastic player and the legends before him. I wasn't the only fan moved by these men on the field.  All 42,000+ fans were on their feet.  Having that moment too, as the Giants’ motto from last season rang true, “Together We Are Giant.”

If you weren't able to join us, we will be heading back to AT&T Park in August and hope to see you there!  Give your Wine Scout a call for more details.

San Francisco Vintners Market at Fort Mason

When our friends at the San Francisco Vintners Market called and asked if we wanted to sponsor the springtime event again, we jumped at the chance. Last year we had prior commitments during both their spring and fall event, so we were excited that our calendar was free the second weekend in April. This will be our fourth SF Vintners Market we’ve sponsored and wanted to freshen it up a bit,  so we put our heads together and came up with the idea of having an exclusive Napa Valley Rocks Section. With a little help from the Napa Valley Vintners, we have put together a very special section.

Here are the featured wineries in our Napa Valley Rocks Section:

If this event is new to you, it’s definitely worth checking out. It’s a great “try it before you buy it” styled tasting weekend with nearly 200 wineries and their wines on hand for you to taste, learn and enjoy. In addition to our Napa Valley Rocks section, we will be sampling our Bounty Hunter Spirits in the reserve room. Admission to our Napa Valley Rocks Section will require either the Reserve or the Cult ticket. Hope to see you next weekend at Fort Mason! If you can’t make it, catch up with us at the Craft Spirits Carnival in June.
