Glitter is getting back on track!

July 17th, 2015

We have wonderful news! Thanks to generous donations from our wine club members we were able to take Glitter in for a proper diagnosis on her ear. Because it is squamous cell carcinoma, all we need to do is remove her ear and expect a full recovery. As love and support flows in we will be making her excision appointment in the next few months. All of Glitter’s loved ones in the tasting room are very grateful and thankful for the ongoing support. Stay tuned for an update next month when we schedule her appointment.

This Saturday is it!

A big thank you to all of the participating wineries who poured with us at Pinot & Paella to support Paso Robles Youth Art Foundation! It was a cooker. We felt heat well into the upper 90′s. Be sure to get your tickets early next year as tickets were sold out.

But, somewhere in the tasting room are not one, but two optical illusions painted by artist Stephen Price. He has work all through out wine country at locations listed on his website. The key is finding the illusion at each location and he will paint you a reward. Check out his website to find us and more information. We hope to see you out on the trail. Cheers!

Image result for apple blossom daysIts been a busy month at Hearthstone and we want to give a big thank you to everyone that helped make it fun. The Apple Blossom Days festival at  the Apple Farm turned out to be a big hit last Saturday. To left is a picture of the critters at the petting zoo. It was a family affair. And, we thoroughly enjoyed pouring alongside Eberle, Pomar Junction, and Sculpterra.

Shortly after the festival we hopped on back to the tasting room to have even more fun at our two consecutive wine club pick up parties. We poured all of our new wines such as the 2011 Syrah and 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. The food was a hit thanks to Frank at Falcon’s Nest catering.

For those of you who came out for Vintage Paso (Zinfandel Festival) we hope you thoroughly enjoyed those meatballs that paired with our Tempranillo, Brunello clone Sangiovese, and the Petit Sirah blend. For those who were saddened, fear not, our lamb burgers will be back in action this May for Wine Festival Weekend.

March 2nd, 2015

Organizers of the tenth annual California and Nevada Credit Unions for Kids Wine Auction have announced that more than $1 million was raised for the eleven Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in California and Nevada.  Hearthstone has been blessed to be part of this event over the last few years and we look forward to further participation. It is a wonderful event.

The sold out event, which took place Friday, February 20th, at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point, California, drew over 425 attendees and was supported by more than 80 credit unions, business partners and hospitals.

The annual wine auction continues to be one of the premier fundraising events for Children’s

Miracle Network Hospitals’, as more than $3.6 million has now been raised by the Credit Unions for Kids Wine Auction since 2006.

“Through the incredible efforts and generosity of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers, we have set a new milestone of support for the eleven Children’s Hospitals in California and Nevada,” said Jeff York, event chairman and president and CEO of CoastHills Credit Union.  “Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a special cause for credit unions and we are pleased to be giving back to this great organization and the children of our community.”
