Good morning everyone and happy Monday! We had a great weekend in the tasting room with a lot of wonderful guests. We will be open again this weekend, Thursday - Sunday. Check our website for details.
Our popular 2016 Intertwined Red Blend is on sale through the end of July, at $18 per bottle, reduced from $22.
We will be bottling our 2017 over the next month, and should start to introduce the new wines into our tasting room rotation in September. If you come out in the next couple of weeks, you might get to try some from the barrel before it is bottled. We have some really fun new wines and are anxious for you to try them.
We have reached "bunch closure" with our Pinot Noir grapes, as you can see from the weekend photo. The vines have (mostly) stopped growing, and all the energy is going into ripening the grapes. We have started to check sugar levels, which are between 4-5%. The next big event will be verasion, or the change in color from green to purple. We should expect to see signs of color change by August 1.
Have a great week, and we will keep you posted on grape progress!
