Tattoos + Sonoma County = Love

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.

Lucky Rock Brand Tattoo from Faith Tattoo

Tattoos are like wine charms, or corkscrews… they are collectibles, very expensive, irreplaceable collectibles.

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…

At Lucky Rock, we like to refer to our tattoos as “asshole filters.”

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.

Big ups to our featured friends over at Faith Tattoo, in Santa Rosa, and Matchless Tattoo, in Sebastopol.

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…

What makes Lucky Rock stand out in a sea of generic wine brands?

This question of identity and differentiation is something that most businesses should evaluate. What brand characteristics stand out in the infinite sea of wine brands — of all shapes and sizes? Even wineries that historically stood out as the best wines are now tossed in with the rest (and beers, and spirits, and seltzers).

So, what makes Lucky Rock special? Is there anything that makes us unique? Why should you, the consumer, even care?  We want to get real with ya...

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”.

Today we’ll discuss a couple of questions regarding red wine and chilled red wine:

  • What is the optimal temperature for drinking wine?
  • What happens when you drink outside of the suggested temperature for red or white wine?
  • When is it best to flip the script/go outside of the box and drink red wine on the dark side...chilled red wine? Coors Light has blue mountains to tell you when it will taste less shitty…we’ll work on the wine label equivalent and get back to you soon.
