When the sun is low and the shadows are long, the evening takes on a dreamlike quality. Out on the back deck it’s the time when problems are solved, answers are found, and friends become family. Evening Shade was named for this tranquil time and we hope our wines can accompany the enjoyment of these serene moments.
