Charlie "the Winery Cat" has Retired!

October 07, 2019

After years of playng the role of "Page Mill Winery's Cat," Charlie has officially retired! Charlie was adopted by Teresa, who started working at the winery back in 2012 and had always taken special interest to the adorable cat. Teresa wanted to give Charlie the wonderful retirement he deserves and knew she could do so as she is already a cat owner and has a lovely backyard in which Charlie loves to explore.  Teresa also has chickens, similar to the winery, and Charlie is fully adapted to them! As he spent years roaming around the winery, Charlie is still adapting to life in a normal home. Although he has not yet taken interest in sleeping inside the home, he spends most of his time in the comfort of Teresa's husbands tool shed. Teresa even put a patio chair and blanket in the tool shed to make it feel similar to the winery, as Charlie was always lounging on our patio. He has become familiar with the scents of Teresa's other cat's but is still adjusting to seeing them in person. He enjoyed some time inside the house the other day while the other cats were outside exploring and he was running from room to room excited about all the new smells. He also found a cat nip mouse and had a ball with that! He has also come to the understanding that his food bowl will always be there and there is no need to eat it so quickly, which is something he would do here at the winery! We are so happy that Charlie has found a forever home and look forward to hearing updates about our adored winery cat!

Page Mill Winery Wins "Best Classic Pairing" at the 2019 Taste Our Terroir Event!

July 26, 2019

We are overwhelmed with happiness, love, and joy from being awarded "Best Classic Pairing" at the 2019 Taste Our Terroir event! We couldn't have asked for a better restaurant to pair with than Oakland's very own Millennium restaurant. A Huge thank you to Millennium and to the Livermore Valley Wine Growers Association for making this possible!

Here are a few words from Dane Stark, Owner and Wine Maker:

"As winemaker at Page Mill Winery, i have a love/hate relationship with wine and food/wine competitions....

I love to win them, that is natural..... what i hate is to beat my fellow winemakers.... because it is not the essence of wine.


It lessens the efforts of the other teams in some small way, and i dont like to be a part of that. 

Each pairing that i tasted at the competition was thoughtful, and creative. The wines were fantastic and the food was exquisite. When a team nailed it, each sip of wine cleansed the palate for the next bite of food, and the food did the same for the wine. When the pairing truly worked the sum was greater than the parts, the synergy created a symphony of the senses, and the pairing feeds not just the body but the ethereal body.

In each team's own way, this was achieved and should be celebrated. The display of artistry at the Taste Our Terroir 2019 event was exceptional and the real winner is this incredible winemaking and culinary community. 

My hat is off to all who participated, who worked, literally for years, to make this event shine. I share our award of "Best Classic Pairing" not just with Millenium Restaurant, but with all the wineries and the restaurants who participated, who do not take our collective ethereal body for granted, and strive to create sensorial experiences that lift us up.

Cheers,
Dane Stark"
Owner/Winemaker, Page Mill Winery

Page Mill Winery in the News again!

July 24, 2019

Page Mill Winery has been featured in another news story by Spirited Magazine regarding our Biodynamic farming practices! 

 

We take pride in our sustainable and organic farming practices. We are taking it to the next level by introducing biodynamic farming to our vineyards!

 

Biodynamics is based on timing and harmony-on the very fundamentals of the cosmos- so instead of applying chemicals in reaction, the goal is to establish a healthy ecosystem where the forces of nature keep things in balance. Minding these forces can help you mitigate the negative impacts of many grapefarming threats, including mildew. 

The Biodynamic Movement at Page Mill Winery

July 17, 2019

Page Mill Winey takes pride in our sustainable and organic farming practices. We are taking it to the next level by introducing biodynamic farming to our vineyards!

 

Biodynamic Farming excludes the use of synthetic chemicals on soils and plants (such as herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides) and takes into consideration Celestial and Terrestrial influences on biological organisms!

 

The goals behind this type of farming practice are to

  • farm without depletion or degradation of soil

  • enhance the nutritional quality of agricultural products

  • restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony

  • encourage natural and functional biodiversity

  • and to reinforce ecology by strengthening the life forces

We're Featured on NBC Bay Area News!

May 03, 2019

What do chickens, sheep, and natural ingredients have to do with winemaking? We are honored to be one of the featured wineries in the @nbcbayarea story yesterday evening on biodynamic farming, and it’s importance in winemaking.

When we treat the soil and vines as a living organism, and nourish them with clean, natural ingredients, this is turn produces beautiful fruit for amazing wine. Organic and biodynamic farming plays a significant process in soil to vines and barrel to bottle. We, at Page Mill Winery, strive to bring you quality, hand-crafted wines and incorporate earth-conscious practices in our winemaking.

“A painter who begins with clear and bright colors, can create a masterpiece, but if we begin with dirty, muddled colors the art produced is limited in scope.” Dane Stark
