"I'd like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that we just received our reviews from Jeb Dunnuck's brand new publication (www.jebdunnuck.com) and inform you that our most recent efforts were very well received (see scores below)! While our goal has always been to make the food friendly, enjoyable wines that Neeta and Kunal enjoy so much, it is always exciting to hear praise from our peers and friends in the critical world as well! Thanks again to everyone who has been a part of this journey! I look forward to continuing down the path with Neeta, Kunal, and all of you in the years to come!"
