The Legend: Toad Hollow is a collaboration of two old friends who, more or less, retired to an existence of peace and quiet in the Hollow, after a life of whirlwind world travel. Neither of these two gentlemen believed in self-denial, and over the years had probably wined and dined at every major eatery and watering hole in the universe. Dr. Toad and The Dancing Badger (as they were fondly called) were sitting on the veranda one day gazing out over Mr. Badger's beautiful hillside vineyards that ran from the banks of the Russian River clear up to the house. They began to discuss the fun times they had experienced over many years, remembering all the wonderful people they had met. During their conversation they decided they wanted to find a way to repay the warmth and friendship shown them along the way. As the two old friends had in common a love of good food and fine wine, they agreed whatever the plan, it must honor food or wine. With Dr. Toad's infamous years in the restaurant business (and whose wife was adamant that he never return to it) and Mr. Badger's keen palate and exceptional ability to make stellar wines, the two decided they would pioneer the making of world-class wines at affordable prices. This natural pairing—Dr. Toad, a man known around the neighborhood as one who could sell sand to a Sheik, as well as a consummate storyteller…he would be in charge of marketing; while Mr. Badger, a gentleman extraordinaire, who had honed his palate during visits to chateaux, whilst dancing for kings…would craft the wine. It is obvious to all who knew these two that retirement was not part of their makeup, as they were off and running with their new project immediately. As you taste the wines from Toad Hollow Vineyards, please take a moment to envision these two old friends…Dr. Toad and Mr. Badger, sitting on the veranda, smiling as they raise a glass of wine to salute you. (Heaven knows that neither would turn down a chance to share a good bottle of wine.) In light of the legend just read, please keep in mind that Toad Hollow wines are very seriously crafted from premium vineyards along the California Coast. We will continue to offer you stellar wines at an affordable price. Read less
