National Drink Wine Day!

By | Blog | No Comments

Yes, it’s true – today is National Drink Wine Day!

A day worth celebrating, not only for the pure enjoyment of sipping a glass of wine, but reaping other benefits as well.

Studies have shown that drinking wine (in moderation) has many health benefits including a healthier heart, boosting immunity, protection against cancers, promoting weight loss and stronger bones, as well as improved mental health.

While those benefits may be reason enough, wine serves other purposes ~ it provides a compliment to a wonderful meal, gives you an excuse to go wine tasting, makes a great hostess gift and tastes divine!

“Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life’s most civilized pleasures.” – Michael Broadbent

Raise a wine glass in celebration…Here’s to a healthy, happy life!

Save The Date… Raving Rock-R Rendezvous coming April 22, 2017

By | Blog | No Comments

With some energetic new additions to R-band, in addition to your already favorite gals, Gina & Jo, the next Rendezvous is planned to be a RAVE!

Wine pong? Why not?
Costume contest. Check.
Awesome music. Check.
Glow-in-the-dark accessories. Check.
Dancing? Of course!
Singing and karaoke? Natch!
Trance-jammin’ DJ? Wouldn’t be a rave without that!
Winemaker willing to stay until the last Rock-Rs wanna head home (usually dawn)? As always!

Tickets will be limited to respond to snag yours as soon as the formal announcement hits your inbox or phone.

Pump it up!

Rockin’ R (finally) Dives into the Ravin’ New Millennium!

By | Blog | No Comments

Yep, we R very old school! Dinosaurs. Crusty and dusty. We love that old time Rock-n-Roll.

But we also like Rockin’ R World.

So without further ado, Rockin’ R Winery is finally diving into the great big ocean the modern world calls social media. If the president of the U.S. can spit forth uncensored raves from his non-secure cell phone in the middle of the night, what the hell could Dean possibly do that would be that disastrous?

The Crush-R is awakening from its Yeatsian slumber and slouching, once again, toward Bethlehem to be born. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, you name it! Of course, Dean-o-saurus is loathe to actually be present on social media daily-by-day and minute-by-minute, so he is going to once again rely upon the anonymous Crush-R to respond, moderate, poke, annoy, and otherwise communicate in these forums.

As always, if you REALLY want to talk to our owner and winemaker, call his cell phone or send an email to one of his many addresses.

But if you wanna have some social media fun, please forward your most irreverent and laughter inducing replies to the blog posts which we hope will soon be regularly filling this digital space.

And, of course, enjoy some fine wine while you whine!

Peace

R-Website and Facebook Page?!

Hey Rock-Rs, what do you think of R-new website design?
This is the new cornerstone of communications with R-Fan Club and the public in general.

R-blog is open to your replies and comments, although the Crush-R reserves the right to sift the gems from the rabble. Read More

ZZZZZZZZ???

The 2013 wines are all safely in barrel and hibernating for the winter. Now, maybe Dean can get some shut eye, too…

But wait! The Crush-R just heard that crazy guy has decided to sit at the bar — I mean, for the California Bar Exam this coming February! Is he nuts? Read More

Post-Harvest W(h)ining or (G)rumbling?

By | Blog | One Comment

The Crush-R is feeling a little blue since the 2013 crush is over. Ya know, kinda like the day after a long anticipated party? (Would you call that w(h)ining? Or (g)rumbling?)

Dean’s focus has now shifted to post-Harvest chores like racking and tasting through all of last year’s wines (twelve different varietals), culling out old barrels, and satisfying a dizzying amount of government paperwork.

Oh, it must be a tough job…thieving wine from dozens of barrels – swirl, taste, spit. Are we supposed to feel bad for you, Dean?

Did YOU Do the Harvest Stomp?

By | Blog | No Comments

During the Harvest Festival, Rock-Rs were invited to foot stomp grapes for the Rockin’ Stomp4Arts. For generous donors to the local arts (just $5 or more), it was a smashing good time (some might say Crushing! ;-))

Once again, Rockin’ R provided great antipasti and BBQ’d treats backstage for their loyal Rock-Rs.

FYI – we’re still working to squash Dean’s skepticism about Social Media.
If you have any pics or quips to share, post them now!!!

Listen to the Music?

By | Blog | No Comments

So, have you had a chance to listen to the New Times Music Awards CD yet?

The NTMA CD has been pounding in Crush-Rs quarry for the past few weeks. Some of my favorites include: Hollywood (Vincent Bernardy – Rock/Alternative), 12 Rounds (Group Home Music – Hip Hop) and Catskills (Country/Americana/Folk).

What were your favorite tracks?

R-Fan Club Open House Rocked!

By | Blog | No Comments

The Crush-R hears Dr. Dean manned the BBQ for three straight days in the sweltering heat ~ drinking Pink! (the newly released Rosé). Rock-Rs stopped by to enjoy the BBQ’d goodies, sample other new releases (Remain in Light and Go Your Own Way), and taste wonderful food-wine pairings such as Europa and Revolution matched with herbal sauces (chimichurri and pesto made from scratch by Rock-R Angie). Deeeeelish!! Read More

R-Fan Club’s Tasty Open House

By | Blog | No Comments

Rather than a one night Rock-R Rendezvous, Rockin’ R is hosting an Open House Pick-up Party for the entire weekend of September 6-8, 2013.

The Crush-R hopes to see you there! (Will you be able to spot the Crush-R? If so, come say, “High?”)

New Times Music Awards Rocked

By | Blog | No Comments

A case in point of Dean’s failure to capture the social media audience…I bet none of you even knew that Rockin’ R sponsored the New Times Music Awards CD release, right?

This past Thursday night at SLO Brew, top local artists took the stage to perform their original songs (and the Crush-R was there). The live-judged show featured winners in six genres and the crowd rocked out to everything from folk to hip hop. Read More

The Crush-R Is In!

By | Blog | No Comments

I’m IN!!!
Who am I? The Crush-R!
It is my mission to crush Dean’s antiquated belief that computers and social media are nothing more than a fad.
He’s such a technological dinosaur that he spends hours writing HTML in an attempt to maintain the Rockin’ R Winery website — how 1995!!! Read More
