This Trio provides you with an opportunity to take the true test of ‘Terroir’…Three different Calaveras County vineyards, same vintage, same varietal. Blended together, these three make up the current 2017 Petite Sirah. However, you now have the chance to try them as Single Vineyards. Enjoy them side by side, or one at a time.

Newsome Harlow - Wines Defined By The Sierra Foothills

The gang here at Newsome Harlow is singularly focused on the experience of our customers. Our goal is to pay particular attention to your tastes in wine so that we may bring to you the wines and stories that are tailored to your preferences.

Furthermore, we may be winemakers and wine marketers, but we are wine drinkers first. So we get that not everyone cares how many awards our wines have won, that we work with some of the greatest Zinfandel vineyards in the Sierra Foothills or that the small batches of wine we produce are becoming harder and harder to get.

Most people care that our wines taste good. Really good. And we get that. That’s why we pay attention to the details — we walk the vineyards, we know the land, and we steward the greatest wines we possibly can into existence — and let you reap the rewards.

Today, and every day, thank you for putting the care in healthcare. Dignity Health, Mark Twain Medical Center, Hello humankindness.

03/13/2020 - (Postponed) Calaveras High School to present “Oklahoma!” March 13 - 15!
San Andreas, CA...Calaveras High School Performing Arts is proud to present its Spring 2020 musical, Rodger’s and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” Onstage at the Calaveras High School Performing Arts Center in San Andreas for one weekend only, performances are March 13 at 7:00, March 14 at 2:00 and 7:00, and March 15 at 2:00. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly (Zachary Zahniser), a charming cowboy, and Laurey (Amaya Halepota and Madeleine Hedger, alternate performances), a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie (J'Cie Garrett) and hapless Will Parker (Nate DeYarmon) in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.
