We’re very pleased with the crop this year. And Rhiannon and Ryan are pleased to have picked up the last bins of 2018, as you can see in the photo above :).

The unsung heroes of delicious wine: our summer vineyard crew. This hardworking team untangles every last vine on the farm, removing excess growth and letting the sunlight in! You can see the Before/After pics below– if we didn’t do this work, the grapes would never see the sun. It’s direct sunlight that helps ripen the fruit, and ripe fruit that makes delicious wine.

It has been an uncharacteristically hot and dry summer and we are seeing . Read More »
