Spring is a time of serenity in the winery, patiently waiting while the wines rest in barrel.
Bud break, suckering, and tucking. The vineyard crew watches tentatively as the vines begin to develop.
A traditional Japanese technique for perfectly folding a silk cloth to hold anything, but ideally a wine bottle!
We experienced an early harvest after warm summer temperatures into the 90s that created luscious grapes and optimal hang times for sugar and acid development. The picking of our Sauvignon Blanc grapes is finished and our team has begun harvesting the red varietals. We are very pleased with development of our crush this year, as it has been the most plentiful one yet.
