Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @AndyOnFarmWine @hvwinegoddess Pinot from RRV, Sonoma Coast and Anderson Vly, Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @ThrallsWine @hvwinegoddess nice fruit profile on the pinot are you striving for burgundian styled wine? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @AndyOnFarmWine Striving for what CA terroir gives us. But I do enjoy restraint & elegance in my wines, little oak, bright acid #SommChat

The Drunken Cyclist ‏@masi3v @StephanieMiskew @ThrallsWine @AndyOnFarmWine @hvwinegoddess how far are you willing to go to source your fruit? @edthralls #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @masi3v Right now maybe as far as Oregon or even Santa Barbara areas & anywhere in between. Some great CA #Pinot regions #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @ThrallsWine @hvwinegoddess do you use the natural yeast fermentation approach? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @AndyOnFarmWine yes, primary & secondary terms are 100% spontaneous/native #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr Shy #SommChat peep - was it hard getting funding 4 UR new #wine venture? What advice can U give 2 others thinking of #wine adventure?

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @KeeperColl funding was my own initially, saved up over years... may need to consider next tier as biz grows #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @KeeperColl Advice: Obey your passion, journey will be tough, but stay the course and work your butt off #SommChat

The Drunken Cyclist ‏@masi3v @edthralls Looking back, was it easier or harder than you thought it would be to get into the wine business? #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman @EdThralls Any plans to make #wine in Spain or Italy? what region(s)? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @thrallswine what does @EdThralls enjoy about producing #Wine on a smaller scale? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @KeeperColl (1/2) being 100% hands-on making what I drink, pleasing those who “get it” vs. trying to please masses #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @KeeperColl (2/2) being small also allows for experimenting #flexibility like #wholecluster & unique small lots for club #SommChat

Sip on This Juice ‏@amylieberfarb Small Lot Handcrafted Pinot is the best kind @ThrallsWine #SommChat @EdThralls @alawine @hvwinegoddess

Debbie Gioquindo,CSW ‏@hvwinegoddess @ThrallsWine What is your production? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @hvwinegoddess very small -- 500 cases total, but growing quickly #SommChat

Debbie Gioquindo,CSW ‏@hvwinegoddess Good 4 U! So proud of you! RT @ThrallsWine: A. @hvwinegoddess very small -- 500 cases total, but growing quickly #SommChat

Lori & Michael ‏@Dracaenawines @hvwinegoddess @ThrallsWine we have heard that 500 is a magic number for small wineries- balance of per bottle cost- true? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @Dracaenawines So many variables. Diff varieties cost more/less, etc. But for long-term sustainability 500 too small #SommChat

Debbie Gioquindo,CSW ‏@hvwinegoddess Q. from hubby - can we get your wine East or do I need to pick it up this weekend and pack it in my suitcase. #SommChat @ThrallsWine

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @hvwinegoddess I can direct ship to NY, but not NJ! #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl – Good morning from CHILLY Chicago! Anyone all done with their wine shopping for next week? - #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @amylieberfarb Distribution just starting up, can find at Enoteca and Wine Annex in #Sonoma, InnerFog in San Francisco #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass Q. @ThrallsWine What are the state laws on distribution? Can you self-distribute? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @winecompass different by State thanks to TTB/ABC. I can self-dist in CA only because of my license, otherwise need middleman #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass @ThrallsWine In CA, is the license that allows for self-distribution based on size? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @winecompass No, based on what license: I have an "02" vs. a "17-20" as an example which comes with certain capabilities #SommChat

The Drunken Cyclist ‏@masi3v @StephanieMiskew @ThrallsWine @AndyOnFarmWine @hvwinegoddess @EdThralls What % of your time is spent on selling the wine? #SommChat

The Drunken Cyclist ‏@masi3v @StephanieMiskew @AndyOnFarmWine @hvwinegoddess @EdThralls I hear that sales takes up an inordinate amount of time, true? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @masi3v with a day job, not as much as I like... looking for help in this regard since growing so fast #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @masi3v it's a necessity... definitely need to spend more time in this role vs. actually making the wine as an example #SommChat

The Drunken Cyclist ‏@masi3v @ThrallsWine I'll send you my resume! @edthralls #SommChat Wait, you have a day job too? #MustHaveMissedThat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @masi3v duh! #SommChat pay the bills!

Cecchi Winery ‏@cecchiwinery How important do you think a wine club is in order to increase brand awareness and a relationship with customers @ThrallsWine? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @cecchiwinery Clubs create value, build loyalty, etc. not necessarily awareness IMO, but def helps build close relationships #SommChat

Cecchi Winery ‏@cecchiwinery Relationships and good wine make the world go 'round @ThrallsWine :-) #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl – Keeping in mind the Paso expansion, do you think there are too many AVAs in CA now? Should system be streamlined? #SommChat

Thralls Wine ‏@ThrallsWine A. @demilove a HUGE debate of course. Yes, prob too many, but there will be many more to focus on more distinct "neighborhoods" #SommChat
