Swirl. Pause. Assess.

The simple art of wine tasting ain’t so simple. There are all sorts of nuisances to get familiar with; think cork taints and oxidation, olfactory characteristics and other esters. Don’t forget the tasting arena—yup; the different parts of the tongue that pick up on different tastes within each wine. There’s something for everyone. Floral, spicy, fruity. Whatever aroma suites you, you’ll get a chance to give it a swig at the newly opened tasting room at the Clif Family Winery & Farm.

Would You Rather…

We’ve been keeping a secret in our back pocket for a while now. We’re tired of keeping our lips sealed so we’re spilling the beans. But before we share our surprise, let’s play a little game of would you rather.

The Launch of Fastpak™

The new SHOT BLOKS® Fastpak™ is now in stores. Yup, Chris, athlete extraordinare and CLIF SHOT brand manager, worked long and hard to get this snazzy new packaging out the door and here's what he has to say about it... Getting a new product out the door is exciting. It’s also a huge relief. Developing something that was once just a mere concept and then shipping it off to stores without getting derailed by various cosmic conspirators (i.e the law of unintended consequences and the law of the unknowns) is quite a process.
