In a little over a year and a half, this little seedling was well on its way to a full-grown cabernet sauvignon grapevine. See more photos from 2007 - 2008.
2009 - 2010
In 2010, we were able to taste PasoPort's first vintage of 4hearts port. Loved it! Steve and Lola released a special package of four different vineyard-designate ports and 4hearts was included. Very special. See more photos from 2009 - 2010, including photos from the very 1st harvest in '09.
2011 - The Great Road Trip
In 2011, we got to taste the first bottling of 4hearts vineyard zinfandel produced by Dunning Vineyards. This 2009 vintage was 55% 4hearts and 45% Dunning. It was love at first sip! (This label was actually still in production phase.) We also drove 30 cases of 4hearts and Steve's Surprise from California to Michigan in 6 days...
In the winter of 2015, Willie checked out what is now a very mature vineyard. Not to mention, he got to taste some of the 2014 vintage right out of the barrel. See more photos from the trip.
