Ryan Jewel said it best in his song he dedicated to Desert Rose - "Come here as strangers and leave as friends" captures what we embody here at Desert Rose.

September Newsletter 

All of the grapes in the vineyard now have protective netting installed and Verasion is well underway. We are praying to the weather gods so we can complete the season on a high note. We normally would be picking some of the white varietals by this time but due to the delayed bud-break last spring, we are likely two weeks away from harvesting most of them. “Only the strong survive” might be an apt description for the grapes, as well as the owners, as this vintage enters the record books!

How many businesses have a song written about them – well we do! Local entertainer, Ryan Jewel, who has moved to Nashville to further his career has written “The Desert Rose” song.  We’ll admit that it captures us pretty well and while we are completely unbiased, you can click on the link to the left to see if you agree. 

To cap it off, a long time work friend that I first met in Tripoli, Libya many years ago, had the original handwritten lyrics, along with a picture of Ryan, beautifully framed by a local firm. The work is now on display in the tasting room and I have informed Ryan that when he makes it big in Nashville I plan to auction it off for a million bucks – never!!  Just one of the many things that makes owning a winery so much fun!

Hope to see you 'round the ranch!
Bob, Linda, and the DRW Gang
