Clark-Claudon’s WeBlog

Engage, Experience, Educate

We are so excited about this new focus!


  From the vineyard…


















to the bottle…

2004 Clark Claudon Cabernet,



to medical and educational outreach… the circle feels complete. 


Since our Peace Corp experience, hands-on-philanthropy has played an important role in Tom’s & my life.  We learned as young adults that the perceived giver is often the receiver. From Colombia to Nicaragua to Nepal to our own community, we have been touched by amazing people. Hence, besides making great wine, outreach will always be prominent in Clark-Claudon’s mission. 


 To that end, we have allocated 400 cases of Estate Cabernet to our new 50% Outreach program. 


The details: 50% of the proceeds will be donated annually to our family’s chosen charities.  The program will begin with our current 2004 Vintage. Want to join the movement?…order here & now!


The V Foundation and its tremendous support for cancer research stands out as one of the most impressive foundations dedicated to cancer research.   Hence, it will be the first recipient of our new outreach focus.  Funds raised will go directly to the V Foundation’s 2008 Pediatric Grant.  This new program will be kicked off at the V Foundation’s 2008 V Foundation Celebration weekend beginning August 1, 2008.

It has been like living in a mushroom cloud around here.  As we all tried to adjust to the dark choking gloom I appreciated our firefighters on a whole new level.  Thankfully most, if not all, of the fires are now contained or under control.  The blue sky has not returned, but at least the air is more tolerable, there is a breeze and clearer skys are on the way.  A week like this puts just plain breathing into perspective.   Thank you Fire Fighters!!!

Did you know…

One barrel of wine equals 20 cases which equals 1200 glasses of wine

A ton of grapes makes about 720 bottles of wine, or 60 cases

One vine, on a hillside like ours, produces about 2 bottles of wine or 10 glasses annually

Each bottle of wine contains about 2.8 pounds of grapes.  That means each 5-oz glass of wine contains a little over half a pound of grapes.

Interesting…worth sharing over a great glass of red wine…I might have a few suggestions of which red wine…

Wow!  Auction Napa Valley raised over $10,000,000!  Wine is an amazing vehicle for raising money for life changing programs.  Our wine was a great success, but more importantly it is so satisfying to contribute to this amazing event. 

Thanks to the NV Vintners staff.  They are even more amazing!!!
