  1. Howdy ya’all from Dallas Texas. Hope you all having a mighty fine day. OMG., Oh dude, I am such a phony, I am a native Californian, raised in the OC.
    For now, I’m only California Dream’n.
    Last week I walked to Urban Crust,. 15th St. Plano, Texas. Little pizza place has become one of my favorites. Last week I tried a Stone with Pinot Noir, I took in a sniff, ooh that smells yummy. Took a sip and fell in love.
    I Googled Stonewood, to find it is a distributor. May I have more information about this particular Pino Noir. I didn’t check the year.
    Looking forward to another taste.


    1. Hello Pat – we are a small online DTW wine merchant and private concierge. We are not the winery Stonewood Wine. Sorry we hear their wines are a bit sub-standard as well. We hope it improves. Also visit our property Stonewood Farms @stonewoodfarmz. Cheers!
