The winter rains have been blessing the earth, but as the clouds clear up it feels like spring around Tanis Vineyards and some special things have been happening! The weekend before Valentine's Day, Steve and Kari (big Tanis Cabernet Franc fans!) came by the winery... but it was no ordinary visit.

Several weeks earlier, Steve had contacted us about the possibility of a specialty label...a very SPECIAL specialty label! With excitement, preparations were made.

And so at the end of their tasting, Steve calmly asked the question that was to trigger Andrew handing him the "very limited edition" wine bottle. You can imagine how overwhelmed and surprised Kari was when Steve got down on one knee and held the bottle up for her to read, "Kari, Will You Marry Me?"

And her answer? ... "Of Course!" The special proposal bottle not only had the perfect question, it got the perfect answer and was the very first bottle of our (not yet released) Tanis 2006 Cabernet Franc, Kari's favorite!

We were so happy to share in this moment, and wish Steve and Kari the very best. May their days be blessed and their life be fruitful!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Hi Jill and Andrew... This is Kari, (from the label Kari)... :)... I haven't had a chance to give you a huge Thank you... things just got very busy after that. Having the two of you with us for that day made it extra special. We are getting married next weekend, May 2nd. We are honeymooning up that way and plan on visiting you and getting some of that yummy Cab-Franc. I still can't believe I have the first bottle! YAY! See you soon!

Have a beautiful wedding day!

Jill & Andrew
