My sharts generally turn into crusties, not cash.

No. A friend is one of their distributors. Met one of the owners at an event some time back. He's from up here in Minnesota.

The main dood is an immigrant from Eastern Europe. Serb or Croate I want to say. We were there over Xmas and they have a big outdoor pizza oven and wood burning grill which was great in the cold weather. Handing out free slices and some homemade (housemade?) sausages with recipe from his home country.

Edit: Or wait. Is that guy from up north the son of a Serb or Croate?

Yeah- that's Rick I think.

Little guy, right? I can't remember now if it's him or his parents...but heavy ethnic influence at the winery. Really, a great time there and I recommend a visit.

Yeah- that's him. I think it's his parents or whatever. In Duluth they lived in a serb neighborhood. My friend is from Serbia. Paso's wines generally interest me the most from California.

I really want to tour Oregon (specifically JK Carriere) and Walla Walla.

Yup, that's got to be him then. Seriously, the winery is a fun place. Rustic and fun. Wine is okay to meh but the place is fun and vibrant. Wine is all priced well though.

Ugh- the Bay had a set of 12 (6 bordeaux and 6 white) Ridel Grape on for like $150. Should've jumped.

Looks like Pasobaire has a new comrade.

The St Eugène was quite fruity, but not in an unpleasant way. Overall decent, but a little undescript.
Schneider's Riesling is good too. Focus on acidity.
