Cazadero Communications - March 2015


Cazadero Communications - March 2015

by Natasha Pehrson

    As I write this from my airy cyber-hut, there is one month until the official start of Spring!  But the mild weather and lack of rainfall would indicate a definite pre-Spring atmosphere!  As of today, we have received 41" more or less, which is a lot more than last year at this time and would certainly welcome some more!

   Please contact Cathy regarding the beautiful Sky Garden's planting and watering schedule. Her email is

   I am happy to congratulate the Cazadero Winery, owned by Ronita and Dave Eggers, for being awarded 2 more Gold Medals at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition,which is widely recognized as the largest competition of American wines in the world. Winemaker Eric DeMuth was involved with the Gold Medal winner 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is the 4th year in a row that the Winery, which has historical wine growing roots from the 1920's, has won 2 Medals.

   Stop by the Cazadero or Duncans Mills General Stores for a good variety of everyday groceries and many locally grown and created products. We tried some of the Duncans Mills Store's 'Cowboy Jerkey' , made on the premises and highly recommended!  Duncans Mills is unique-I can get my locally roasted coffee beans at Gold Coast and cross the road and get a variety of teas at Mr.Trombly's!

  Raymond's Bakery has reopened and their popular Friday live music and Pizza Nights great time out!
