A Sign on Life…

It’s been a while since we posted here. Not that there weren’t any news. We are just terrible at disseminating it.

While we will promise to update you and our blog very soon, you might want to see us this weekend and get a taste of our latest bottlings.

It’s going to be a rainy weekend, so what better than spending a day under the roof of Fort Maison, tasting away…

Meet winemaker Matt Duffy on Sunday or proprietor Stephan Schindler on Saturday. Hope to see you there!



Fort Mason Center,
Marina Blvd and Buchanan St.,
San Francisco, CA 94123


Nov 17 and 18. 1pm – 4pm (there is a trade window too!).

Easkoot Sighting: Slanted Door Restaurant / Ferry Plaza Building / San Francisco



Slanted Door RestaurantShould you ever be so fortunate as to successfully lock down at a table at San Francisco’s Slanted Door restaurant, make sure to spend some extra time with the restaurant’s fantastic wine list. Here at this Bay Area staple the idea of matching the right wines the food has been followed with great attention to detail from the days Mark Ellenbogen ran the wine department to now with Chaylee Priete at its helm.

Founded in 1995 on Valencia Street by chef Charles Phan, the restaurant later moved into a large open space designed by Olle Lundberg in San Francisco’s busy Ferry Plaza Building and blossomed from there into a group of restaurants and smaller “out-the-door” eateries. As of this writing, the original Valencia street location will reopen shortly much to the delight of Slanted Door’s loyal following.

Cane Pruning: A new growing season starts with a good haircut.



Mark Pasternak, grower at Easkoot Cellars demonstrates cane pruning at Easkoot Cellar’s Chileno Valley Vineyard.

While other pruning methods might have advantages over cane pruning in different locations, the soupy weather conditions in the Petatuma Gap’s Chileno Valley make cane pruning the method of choice at this vineyard.
