Cooking With Casey…and Wine

I love to cook. Some of my best memories are of my mom and grandmothers in their kitchens whipping up their favorite dishes. When I was very young, my mom took a gourmet cooking class. She still talks about the time she tried to make homemade croissants.  Continue »

Inching Towards Normal

Looking back through my Facebook feed, I can identify when the pandemic hit home for me. It was Friday, March 13, the last day of our Spring Break here in Fredericksburg and the day we found out that school wouldn’t be starting back up the following week. It would be several more weeks before we’d find out that school wouldn’t be starting back up at all.  Continue »

4.0 Staff Survey: Pandemic Style

As I sit at home for the 493rd day, I’m beginning to wonder what my 4.0 coworkers are up to. Yes, we opened the winery on Friday to quick tastes and bottle sales only, but we’re keeping the number of staff to a minimum for safety reasons. And some of the staff is waiting a bit longer to come back to work. An abundance of caution is not a bad thing during these strange times, but still, it means that “our work family” has not been together for a really, really long time.  Continue »

Wine and What You’re Watching Now

If you’re like most of my friends and me (and apparently the rest of the world), you’re spending at least part of your “corona time” watching movies and TV shows. During these uncertain times, it can be comforting to lose yourself in fictional stories and other people’s lives (the crazier, the better). And there are some pretty great shows to choose from these days.  Continue »

Wine in the Time of Pandemic

Strange times, these. Though I normally spend a good part of each week working from home, the idea of not being able to go anywhere has me a bit lost. Most of the time, I don’t what day it is, and honestly, as I write this I’m not even sure whether it’s still March or if we’ve finally moved on from the longest month ever.  Continue »

Spring is Coming…and So Is a Great Event!

Every year about this time, I start yearning for spring. Despite my husband’s warnings that another freeze could be right around the corner, I take my plants back outside (even though we ALWAYS end up bringing them back inside), and I start shopping for new plants. I push my sweaters to the back of my closet and dust off my flip-flops (never mind that my toes will be cold until June). At the first hint of a warm day, I’m ready to be back outside on the patio, glass of white wine in my hand and dogs by my side.  Continue »

“It felt like serendipity”: Meet the Fritzes (the first in our series about our Wine Club members)

Ever had that feeling that you’re where you’re supposed to be? It’s a pretty great feeling. Jim and Laura Fritz felt it when they walked into 4.0 on July 4, 2013. That’s the day they first visited 4.0…and joined our Wine Club.  Continue »

Meet Your 4.0 Leadership Team: Beth-o and Triple C

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 »

How Well Do You Know 4.0?
