In the vineyard:
Spring was late in arriving, but a warm May has been making up for lost time. All varieties are now past bud break and shoot thinning has started. So far so good.
In the cellar:
We made the final blends of the 2017 red wines and are very excited about both the quality and quantity. We will slowly start bottling the 2017 whites and rose. Our goal is to give these wines more time to develop, so there is no rush to bottle.
