Popular Wine Myths Debunked – Part 1

In the 4.0 Cellars tasting room, one often hears comments about wine from customers that tend to fall into the categories of myths, misconceptions, and sometimes just plain quackery.

Part 2 will follow.  Continue »

Vine Pruning, February, 2020

One of the great things about 4.0 is the diversity of people working here. I’m not gonna’ lie: We’re kind of a kooky group. We have young and old…and some in between. We have some who’ve lived in this area all their lives and some who found their way here (perhaps accidentally). We have some wine aficionados who are members of many wine clubs (including 4.0) and others who, quite honestly, would just as soon drink beer (or bourbon). And we have Beth (Beth-o) and Cristol (Triple C), two people who could not be more different from one another but who work together almost daily to steer our team in the right direction.  Continue »
