We have been getting tattooed for a while over here at Lucky Rock Wine Co.
“Why?” you may ask.
Well, simply put, because we wanted to, and now it’s too late to turn back, so we embrace, enjoy and just keep adding ‘em on… and one thing is for sure, we sure aren’t lasering these bad boys off.
Many people love to ask us this always-obnoxious question… “What are you going to do when your 80 years old?” The answer is, “WHO CARES?!”
It seems like every day, we see more and more, ‘older’ looking people walking down the street with tattoos, and honestly, we just think that they are probably a little cooler, and a tad more interesting, than your average ‘old’ person… We imagine they have a story to tell, in large, because their tattoos are already telling it – their love for art, for their kids, their passions, prison time – whatever, you name it…
If you don’t want to talk to us because we have tattoos (which is rare), then, we probably don’t want to talk to you - so, thanks for helping with the vetting process.
On that note, we are proud to have seen two of our favorite local tattoo shops featured in the Sonoma Magazine/Press Democrat article, ‘Top 10 tattoo shops in Sonoma County,’ written by Shana Bull.
Justin Shaw, owner of Faith Tattoo, helped design the Lucky Rock Wine Co. label and has been tattooing both of us since we were 18 years old.
Mike Pritchett, owner of Matchless Tattoo, is responsible for many of Jesse’s tattoos, and is a stellar on the canvas AND the skin!
If you are in the area, and in the market for a new tattoo, we highly suggest you go get inked by either, or both, of these two dudes… Don’t know what to get?! We hear the Lucky Rock picaxe is getting pretty popular…

Chilled Red Wines
If you have not had a chilled red wine, it can be quite the mental pivot. Truth-be-told, most people drink red wines too warm and white wines too cold. As they say...“the worse the beer, the colder you drink it”.
Wine cocktails have a bad rap and we can think of a few folks to blame for that. Maybe the culprit is your wine cooler swilling Aunt Karen who conveniently brings two and and a half bottles of Bartles & Jaymes to family gatherings and decides it’s the perfect time to hop on an emotional rollercoaster (awkwaaard). Or maybe it’s because of trendy, millennial influencer Saraa (note: no “h”, double “a”) that frequently posts IG pics of “the squad” draining bottomless mimosas at brunch.
Either way...it’s time to take back wine cocktails from the hands of hammered Aunts and trendy influencers.
How are we gonna do that you ask? Well, by showing you some great options for mixing wine with booze and mixers.
