Hahhaaa you love me. Sucker. #hallsdeep
Family is just not something we talk about it. We will be donating ALL TASTING FEES + portion of our gross sales to a wine club aka “Family Member“ that has been effected by the fires. — I don’t care if you call In and “buy tastings” Or if you call and say “donate this much“ and we will run a card and we will make sure it hits their home. we take care family and family comes first.
15 years ago today the good Lord called my grandfather home, in a room full of people who loved him. We each arrived separately, around the same time, without planning to do so. He looked over our heads in expectant awe, and his body released his spirit. It was one of the most profound moments of my life. Tell people you love them. Tell them so often that it removes all doubt.
In 2 days we will have been married 19 years. She still looks at me like this. 19 years later, and still, no one knows why. Least of all, me. “That’s YOUR Wife?!?” Is still music to my ears. @heathersaarloos

Now you don’t need to go see any art today. There it is, all the best stuff in New York. Arguably more than half a billion dollars worth of perfection, of artists that died broke, unappreciated and mentally destroyed. it always intrigues me why somethings make it up on walls and some don’t. If you’re creating for the sake of creation please continue to do so, one day you’ll probably be on the wall somewhere, but if that’s the reason you’re creating you probably should stop right now. be a creator not curator.
VIII - it’s on.
11:45 Pm NYC - “I want a Doughnut or 6. Better eat them fast before my stomach hates me. - oh and a French Cruller to go.” You all married very, very wrong. @heathersaarloos - The blueprint.
The WineClub Family got a 2 day head start. Now everyone else gets a shot. Come to think of it... I am fat, I am prematurely gray, I wear the same outfit all year long, I have a beard, I want to spread joy, I live in a snow globe... Um. Yea. I'm ok with this. Merry Christmakwanzakah to all!!

Keith Kong Devours New York City : I walked 12 miles - biked 15 - saw everything and made 27 new friends today. I was literally hugged by six people I’ve never met before and one somm after dinner. Magic doors opened and I wanted to see what was inside. It only took 13 years to get me here but It felt like this town waited to give me a hug. Your invited if you can keep up. I like this town.
I went to the 9/11 memorial today. I looked at the names, looked into the voids of what once was, thought about where I was. Then I thought about what has changed since then, how the words Fear and Terror have become staples in our lives. So much has transpired since then. “Safety” has replaced freedom. I love my country. But since then everything feels like it has changed, none of it on the surface... I looked up like a tourist and took this photo. I held my breath as it flew by.. Sometimes not having an answer, is the right question to ask. I feel like I am still holding my breath.
We didn't repeal prohibition to drink mass produced, soulless, bullshit booze... It's an honor to work this hard. Hug your Winemaker. Kiss your Farmer. ________________ #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle #wine #losolivos

Family - check your email - Once a year we do everything we can to give back to those that have supported us all year long. We scour the corners, the open cases, pull things off the hidden shelves and put them in little brown Wino bags and tie them with twine. We mix them all up and ship out older vintages - the “sold out” the ridiculously expensive vintages- All for a to the bone discount. No we don’t know what we ship you and you don’t know what you’re getting but I can tell you. It’ll be worth for more than you spend. Yes we know we’re crazy, yes it is insane. But that’s just how we are. That is what this time of year is all about. We support those that have supported us. From our plow to your porch. Time capsules of liquid love letters. Get some. While you can. Link in the Profile. -Santa Saarloos ________________ #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle #wine #losolivos

If anybody asked my kids if they were born in a barn and raised in a bar the answer would be yes. And we have the wall to prove it. I am beginning to think that Cash might be larger than the average Ape. Son Of Kong. ________________ #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle #wine #losolivos

Career Day at my Sons School. Nothing resets the work mind like standing in front of a rabid group of 3rd graders and telling them why your job is unreal. Telling them how awesome it is to do what you do and to answer questions and hopefully plant a seed in their minds. Most of the time I am just trying to make the 9year old kid in me impressed by things we get to do. As someone who suffers from dyslexia and a few other learning disabilities, I was pretty crappy at school. But when you can’t read or write well you develop other skills like figuring out problems, and how to be nice enough to the smart people and have them help or write your papers for you. One thing I hated about school was that if you weren’t good at it, you weren’t going to be good at it for at least 18 years. That can really screw you up as a kid, you think you are a failure... and shove you down some bad and destructive paths. But to a person, everyone I truly admire, was just bad at school, figured a work around during it, then found out what they were great at later. We need to constantly strive get the kids who aren’t good at one thing naïvely enthusiastic to find out what the next thing they are going to be good at is. That is a very easy or very cheap. If I listened to my English teachers growing up I would’ve quit writing, which I did for a long time. Screw that, I like it, And in this age of auto correct it will screw it up way worse than I ever could. My 6th grade English teacher said that if I took her calligraphy class I wouldn’t have to ever take a spelling test again, I took her up on it, it was a “girls class” but she taught me “WORDS ARE BEAUTIFUL” and I started down a path of seeing words as such and Writing them as such. It bled into every part of my life, to the point I married a woman who does nothing but make things beautiful. I think about that teacher often and where I would be if she didn’t pull me aside and make me that deal. If you want to understand the entrepreneur study the juvenile delinquent—- Best job I’ve ever had. My kids was pretty stoked. ________________ #saarloosharvest #blessthishustle #wine #losolivos
