I Like This Grape

Copia Vineyards is a tale of a young couple who left successful careers in engineering and journalism to follow their love, passion and ambition for wine. Not only did Anita and Varinder not grow up in wine, but they grew up without wine. Meet Copia Vineyards.

Our Response to Covid-19

We Are Open and Safe

We're working hard to provide a warm and hospitable "touchless" guest experience!

As we prepare to reopen, we're being incredibly intentional and thoughtful. Your health, well-being and safety are of topmost importance and we are following strict sanitizing and social distancing guidelines.

We are following strict and frequent sanitizing and social distancing guidelines. Reservations will also be limited to maintain proper distance between parties. 

Here are a few things to know as we enter into this new environment:

Social distancing practices, including face masks upon entry and being seated, are required for all parties. If you don't have a mask, one can be provided to you.

Wine and food go together, we always say! In the case of reopening our doors, it is actually a requirement and all wine purchases (tastings or by the glass/bottle) must be accompanied by a meal order. Click here for more information on our Wine & Food Tasting Experience.

Reservations are required and can be made here. Same-day reservations are also welcome by calling 805-296-3000 (Thurs-Sun).

We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Our hearts filled up with so much positivity and inspiration from all the week's wonderful posts! Thank you to everyone who took some moments out of their day to share this with us. There was one photo that really spoke to us and we've selected the poster as our winner. Congratulations to Carol (@thehealthyacademic)!

What Does Abundance Mean To You?

GIVEAWAY: WEEKEND STAY AT COPIA VINEYARDS GUESTHOUSE
Enter for your chance to win: Read below!


Hi Friends,

Sometimes life can give you lessons of humiliation in tiny doses. Maybe you only got to second place in your 2nd grade spelling bee (true story). Other times, life can literally bring you to your knees. Maybe, due to circumstances outside of your control, you had to leave almost everything and everyone you knew behind (also a true story). One day, we'll sit down with you and tell you all about it ...
 
"The world breaks everyone and afterward
many are strong at the broken places."
- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Knowing that you are small in the grand scheme of things allows for appreciation of life's lessons. And if you get through it, you learn resilience. Without our own experiences, we would never have been able to take the risks and leaps to reach what is now Copia Vineyards. 

People often ask us, "What does Copia mean?" Copia (Cōpia) is from Latin meaning abundance. It's such a powerful word. What better way to encapsulate the sheer feeling of fullness that takes its residence in our hearts. We're always saying that life's path is winding and we're glad it led us here. When we arrived on this property in 2017, we couldn't help but be consumed by the ample sense of home. So, Copia is home to us. 
 
And now, we want to spread the wealth of this good, good feeling!
We  want  to  know  what ABUNDANCE means  to  you.
 
Choose any photo that represents abundance to you. Post on Instagram and tag @copiavineyards
We'll pick one winner for the ultimate getaway:

The Little Things

 
Hello Everyone,

Down the rabbit hole we all went back in March. Just like Lewis Carroll's Alice, you could say that it has been an Adventure in Wonderland, with all it's complexities, dramas and strangeness. Back in March, I'm sure a lot of us were wary of mandatory sheltering. Then in April, if you didn't have to seek medical help, you might have felt gratitude for just being healthy. And now in May, dare we try to be cautiously optimistic? To some, it may feel too soon. To others, it may not be soon enough.

This "downtime" is difficult, but it doesn't come without feeling transformed somehow. It's been the little things during this time that feel like blessings. Little reflections. Little activities. Little lessons. We learn how to just "be" in the same space at the same time as our significant other. We can gain an appreciation for the things that the other person does throughout his or her daily life. We share their struggles and relish in their triumphs. Our thoughts become unlocked and free. We share them with each other. We listen to nature uninterrupted and think about our own influence on its cycle and heartbeat. Life is taken slower than before, because we don't have much of a choice, do we? It makes me wonder how many of these "little things" I will want to keep alive in my life after the height of this pandemic passes. Years from now, I suspect I'll look back at this time with a weird sort of nostalgia. I know I'll be forever changed by it and it's not necessarily a bad thing to have life interrupted only to value it more. 

It seems like we're on the cusp of moving to Stage 3 of California's "Resilience Roadmap." We shall see. This last week, we've been discussing how to successfully and safely conduct wine tastings again. On Friday, we joined a Zoom call with around 250 of our peers to learn about where we stand when it comes to reopening. It feels imminent and we are preparing for the eventuality.

Finally, to everyone who has been ill or knows someone who has been affected by COVID-19, we wish you strength and hope that there are some little things that you, too, can hold onto at this time.

Strawberry Bakewell Tart | Recipe by Sarah Boone

This recipe sings summer to me. Being from the UK, a bakewell tart is a summer staple – a delicious concoction of sweet shortcrust pastry, fruit, jam, frangipane (a chewy French almond filling) and topped with sliced almonds.  It’s a show stopper piece that can be made with just about any fruit and jam you like, or have on hand. Strawberries from our local farmer’s market have been delicious lately, I recommend making this with whatever fruit is in season at the time … strawberries, plums, and cherries to name a few. This tart is best served at room temp, so pack it up for your next picnic or backyard BBQ. A classic bakewell is finished with a sprinkling of confectioners sugar, this part in my opinion is optional, and I actually prefer it without!

Honesty and Hope

Hello Copia Friends and Fam,

When I started sending these emails each week, I told myself that I was going to be one thing above all: Honest. And honestly speaking, I'm getting a little stir crazy. Between stories of killer hornets and sheltering in place for a month-and-a-half, it's been really tough to not see you. It's like the car ride that never ends. There's a sort of feeling out there right now, a collective itch, if you will, of people waiting and wondering, "Are we there yet?"

I Zoom'ed (it's a verb, now) with my niece in Wisconsin this week. She had her head balanced on one hand while she told me how her college semester has been hijacked by Rona. That, in her charming Gen Z speak, is how she refers to Corona Virus. It's an uncomfortable familiarity that we're all developing with something that we'd just as soon see vanquished forever. Varinder and I trade this frustration back-and-forth, but then we also keep reminding ourselves that this will pass at some point. Tomorrow may not be the same, but it will come, nevertheless. And with each passing day, with hopeful hearts, we'll look forward to reintroducing all the things we enjoy sharing with you, like tastings, events and visits to your hometowns. God-willing, that time will be soon. In the meantime, we'll keep sharing with you, virtually! We're highlighting a wonderful interview with Varinder conducted by Randy Smith of The Wine Write, sharing a recipe for a homestyle chicken dish with a slightly elevated preparation and highlighting some specials we have at the Copia Vineyards store.

We'd also like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Take heart friends, keep hope and definitely stay in touch as you have been. We love hearing from you.
