News about vintage

2014 harvest and vintage is complete. As a most simplistic summary, we received higher than average Spring rainfall, thus providing good soil moisture leading into our rather warm and dry summer. Canopies were big and healthy early, much vigilance was required in the vineyard and crops in general were light. The total upside of all this is that fruit quality was a stand out. All wines are in barrel including our first crop of Pinot Noir off 15 year old vine stock. We are very excited about the 2014 wines. Adding to the excitement of our Pinot harvest, our second boy ‘JED’ was born the day before picking.

New Vineyard Plantings

A new planting project has began. All soil work has been completed, ripping, discing and smudging. Posts have been punched in, now for wires, clips, irrigation and finally planting. We are adding to our plantings of Shiraz and Chardonnay. Utilizing different rootstock and clones which will add some new character and structure to future wines.
