Lieb Behind the Scenes – June 2020

I just looked back at my March blog post. It was 3 months ago but feels like a lifetime. I’m not going to sugar coat it. These past few months for our business, our employees and our families have been rough, mentally and physically.

The low was probably the day I single-handedly worked the phone, e-comm and the tasting room because some scary statistics had just been released, and my team members were (rightfully) afraid to come in. I didn’t sleep that night. I went days with stress headaches....

Lieb Behind the Scenes – March 2020

Woah, guys. I thought about not writing my blog at all this quarter. I mean, what can I possibly say right now? Does what's happening "behind the scenes" at Lieb even matter? Can I offer any words that will be at all helpful or insightful? No. This crisis is so much bigger than me, than Lieb.

Yet, here I am typing. I feel compelled to say SOMETHING.

What feels right, I think, is not to report on what's going on here, but simply to take this post to wish everyone reading this health, perspective...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – December 2019

 

How are we wrapping up another year already!? My sixth year at Lieb Cellars, in fact. And when I sit back and reflect on these past years, I think it’s fair to call 2019 the “year of the curveball” at Lieb Cellars. 2013 was my first year and was all about learning the business. 2014 was about planning our rebrands and overhauling the company from the ground up. 2015 was when our new brands were launched and we began to rebuild. 2016 was when we got serious and really started to...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2019

Guys, I’m wearing a sweater and drinking hot coffee in the office right now, and I LOVE IT. Welcome back Fall! We’ve missed you on the North Fork. Fall is always a bitter-sweet season for me, though. “Sweet” because of the crisp, refreshing weather, beautiful sunsets, fall foliage, my gloriously comfortable (albeit less than flattering) fall wardrobe, and of course the excitement of harvest. “Bitter” because it means winter is only a few months away. But, let’s focus on the positive,...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – June 2019

HOW IS IT SUMMER? Well, unofficially at least. I think what’s throwing me off is how cool it’s been. High 60’s and low humidity are my jam but certainly not the beach and BBQ weather I expect in June. Regardless, it’s here. And we’re ready for it!

At Lieb, we’re in full “on season” swing. Our tasting room and patio are decked out with new furniture and umbrellas. Our Sunday summer music schedule is on the books, and we’re looking forward...

Hey all,

Spring! Well it’s not officially here but it is in my mind. The next month or so I’ll step out of my house in the morning with a light jacket and refuse to turn around to swap it out for a winter coat despite immediately realizing it’s still cold out and I’m inappropriately dressed. Spring is here dammit!

So what’s going on at Lieb “behind the scenes”?

At the winery, spring is bottling season. It starts in January with our Bridge Lane Rosé and continues through...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – December 2018

Hey all,

We made it! This whirlwind of a year at Lieb Cellars is only a few days from coming to a close. And as I sit here trying to reflect on the past 12 months, my mind keeps wandering to the 12 months ahead. 2018 has been banner year, and I’m super proud of all that #TeamLieb has accomplished. But rather than look back fondly, what I’m focused on right now is starting fresh and getting to work in 2019. There’s so much more to do!

With this being said, in the spirit of looking...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – September 2018

Hey all,

Harvest is here! It marks my 6th at Lieb Cellars. Yesterday my husband and I brought our two daughters, Renny who is 4 and Gabi who is 2, out to the vineyard to help our crew pick Sauvignon Blanc grapes. They pretended to drive the tractors, played with our vineyard foreman’s daughter Nilda, snuck tastes of the grapes and ran around acres of open space. Reflecting on the day, I felt incredibly grateful to live where I live and work where I work.

It also made me nostalgic about...

Lieb Behind The Scenes – June 2018

Hey hey guys!

It’s been 3 months since I sat down to write a blog post and WHERE DO I BEGIN. Whirlwind and insomnia are the two words that immediately come to mind when I think about this year thus far. Whirlwind because we’ve seen a boom in media attention and sales, the likes of which I’ve yet to experience in my 4 years (wow, almost 5 now!) at Lieb. And insomnia because all of the excitement has me up at night running through my ever-growing to-do list and contemplating all the ways...

Lieb Behind the Scenes – March 2018

Hey guys!

I was hoping to write this blog post last week but then came down with a horrendous flu.  I then tried to write it on Tuesday but we got hit with our 3rd Nor’easter in two weeks, so I was stuck at home for 12 hours with two very cute but very high-maintenance toddlers and zero peace and quiet.  And as I sit here writing today, I’m wrapped in an oversized wool scarf because it’s 36 degrees out.  Who’s ready for spring??  ME.

Yet despite the challenges of winter, I’m...
