In the vineyard:
Red grapes are up to bat now. The weather has been in our favor and we are taking advantage of it by delaying red harvest until the week of September 25. Big week for some very ripe Merlot! For more depth and detail, regular updates can be found under “Journal” on Linden’s website.
In the cellar:
The winery is filled with yeasty, fruity aromas. After months of dormancy the cellar is alive and active. Very pleased with the quality of the whites so far.

Of Special Interest:
Vintage 2017 has started. The crush pad and cellar are very active. A good time to vist, especially if you want to see winemaking in action.
