A Date with Release Day

At Release Day (we’re counting the days!) our guests will be among the first to taste our 2013 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. As we gear up for one of our favorite days of the year, we’re inspired to post this “Bottle Story” from a guest at last year’s event. Thank you Brianna for sharing your story!

Botle Silver Oak 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet and wine corks “Release Day in 2016 fell on our anniversary weekend! What’s more, the release was for the 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet – the year we wed! Right then and there, we knew it was meant to be.” – Brianna, California

As longtime fans of Silver Oak, my husband, Christopher, and I have always longed to experience a Silver Oak Release Day. But, between work, family, traveling and well, LIFE, there seemed to always be *something* on the calendar preventing us from attending. We felt doomed!

This past summer, just a few weeks before our fourth wedding anniversary, we realized we hadn't yet planned anything (how romantic of us, right? Like I said, LIFE, people!). So, we figured we should at least do a weekend somewhere to celebrate another year of wedded bliss.

Knowing Release Day is in August, I decided to take a quick peek at our trusty Silver Oak calendar hanging in the kitchen. Lo and behold: Release Day fell on our anniversary weekend! What's more, the release was for the 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet, the year we wed! Right then and there, we knew it was meant to be.

The event was everything we could have hoped for and more. From generous pours of Silver Oak and delectable food to meeting winemakers and being surrounded by beautiful vineyards, it was a day we’ll never forget. Of course, we made sure to stock up on plenty of 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet before we left! We look forward to celebrating many more years together over a bottle of our favorite wine, from our most favorite year.
