Hello everybody, and welcome to the Von Holt Wines website!

This is my first blog. I'm glad it will be about something close to my heart.

I'm a retired US Secret Service Agent and two diverse things come to mind when I think about special feelings from my old career. Those of you with law enforcement backgrounds will especially relate. First is that feeling when you get home from a midnight shift and immediately dive into bed, and get that first 4 hours of unbelievably deep sleep. The second is watching Air Force II take off with the Vice President, from a country that you barely knew existed two weeks ago, after you have conducted a successful "advance". They are special, warm feelings that create a place of comfort in their own way deep inside.

In August last year, I experienced a similar feeling of special comfort when I watched the first bottle of Von Holt Wines roll off the bottling assembly line. It's a crazy process if you haven't been involved with it before - much like the old "I Love Lucy" TV show where she can't put the candy in the boxes fast enough. Seeing my dad's name on the bottle was another special, warm feeling that hit a place inside me that's hard to describe. Obviously, it's my name too, but I always associate it with dad. He was the first person on either side of my family to be born in the US, worked two jobs his whole married life to support my mother, brother and me, and, everybody loved him. He would have enjoyed reading about your experiences with Von Holt Wines.

So, this venture, Von Holt Wines, is as much about my dad as it is about me. I wish he was here to see it. He also missed seeing me marry Pam, who he would have greatly loved. So, everybody, here's to my dad, Fred Von Holt!

I hope you will share your Von Holt Wines experiences here on our blog. Thanks for reading and enjoy your warm memories with the wine!

If you are a Pinot Noir fan, the VonHolt 2009 from the Saucci Vineyard in Sonoma is a must have! Chris VonHolt provided my wife and I with a tasting, and that was all we needed. Our first case is down to 2 bottles left, after gifting 2 of the bottles to fellow Pinot fans. I recommend buying a bottle online for your own group tasting, then follow up with a case buy afterwards. I found that if you email Chris through the website he is happy to chat with you. On a case buy you might even get him to throw in a little bonus of some kind! Never hurts to ask! Besides, he is just starting to get the word out about his wonderful offerings, so maybe he will be feeling extra helpful! Cheers! Carl

A respectable and instructive article without a doubt . It urges me a ton to redesign my understanding, I to a great degree like the way the writer displayed his viewpoints. http://www.israelbigmarket.com/write-for-us/
