inter can sure seem long when one’s experiencing ‘Woo Woo’ deprivation. Never fear, lovers of Dirty Laundry Vineyard! Most of their sold-out wines bottled last March will be available again at retailers and at the wine shop (re-opening April 1st).  An expected 17,500 cases (20% increase from 2011 vintages) will include a marked increase in DLV’s most popular wine: ‘Woo Woo Vines’ Gewürztraminer, going from 2171 cases to over 3000.

High demands for DLV’s proprietor blends, Hush (blush) and Bordello (Bordeaux-style red) have prompted the crafting of the winery’s first-ever white blend, ‘Secret Affair.’ Marketing manager Judi Skinner says that they’ve been “talking about doing this blend for years” and is very excited about what is sure to become another hot seller from one of the most talked about wineries in the valley (see tasting notes below).
