SALE!  PINOT NOIR - $22.00
(outstanding fruit!)


SEPTEMBER (Cont'd from Home page)
Also, DID YOU KNOW. . . that my outstanding Pinot Noir is on sale right now for $22.00? And, in case you didn't know, El Paso Winery is FOR SALE? Yes, it's time. Everyone knew the time was coming especially since Jerry's passing. But, to be sure, I'm still here and remember, there's always Plan B. Plan B is to CLOSE for the season like I do, and RETURN next Easter!




I keep telling myself that there's another chapter in these bones. The problem is. . . I just don't know when that chapter starts. Maryl



JULY (Cont'd from Home Page)
Everything considered though, life is good and it's now time for me to start a new chapter. So, until then, I'm still here, although mostly "in the cellar" -- Thursdays thru Sundays, 1 - 6pm.

             Hope to see you soon, Maryl

DID YOU KNOW. . . that El Paso Winery is open for business. and has never been permanently closed? Well, if you look up El Paso Winery on Facebook, that's exactly what you would see.

I, who know absolutely nothing of how Facebook works, and who, many years ago had my page created by someone I can't even remember, taught me how to edit my seasonal closing, any changes to my hours of operation and an occasional new post. So, last week I decided to check this out and "yes" it's true. Not only does my page state that the winery is permanently closed, it seems that all current postings have been removed and the most current ones are from 2021. I, now have spent hours trying to re-edit my page but to no avail. I can't even log on to it. I don't even know the correct terminology to use, but it seems to me my page has been hacked.

So, until I can fix this mess, the only thing I can say right now is . . . it sure is dumb being so  dumb. And, "yes" El Paso Winery is open and I'd love it if you'd stop in for a few FREE tastes! 



DID YOU KNOW. . . (Cont'd.)
some kind of heating mechanic named Phil. All I know is that he came, he looked the situation over, he came back with a new boiler, AND INSTALLED IT THE NEXT DAY! And, he did it all by himself!

Then, it was about a day or so after the boiler install that I was talking to Isabel. I told her I was going over to the winery one more time to check on the temperature -- just to be on the safe side. It was late. I was in my slippers. I threw on an old jacket and walked over. I opened the door and before I could put the lights on, WATER POURED OUT! Totally soaking me and my bare slippered feet. It appeared to be gushing from the loft but how could that be? There aren't water pipes up there. After I gained by senses, I could see that the faucets in the little sink were blown off and iced cold water was shooting up  -- not pouring down. And here I thought I had remembered everything Jerry taught me about how to close down the winery before winter set in so that pipes wouldn't freeze.
Oh, well. . . just one more thing -- my washer/dryer gave up the ghost the other day.

I think I'll take the next bus out of town.

I'm still keeping the faith and trying to giggle along the way. . .

                                                       Hope to see you soon, Maryl
