  • t-posts and wire are a poor replacement for golden rolling hills

  • To bad nothing to be proud of the Humboldt County fair was a joke it was sad seeing how many people were there Mabey 40 at most. The LEO’s prolly brought there kids and realized what there really doing to this county it’s funny to watch this cookie crumble. Welcome to the dumbest county in history.. one of the wealthiest happiest people in the north now we’re just like crescent city. It’s sad

  • Congratulations Briceland Vineyards!

  • Columbia Basin wine millions of acres, water beyond belief, soils made for wine grape growing and does not pull water out of a local world class Salomon/Steelhead spawning stream. They don’t have near enough acres out there to grow the volume of Wine they have been salen through the years, wonder what they are paying $180-200 per ton for crush grapes from the real Wine grape growing regions of the west. They probably do know how to make great wine and are good marketers.

  • Truth in advertising would be Briceland Wine Makers Cooperative. We make the best Wine in Humboldt County. Show me the acres of grape vines and yield per acre.
