Greetings wine lovers!
Vineyard and Cellar News:
Harvest has started! We've picked Merlot and Cabernet Franc from Athena's vineyard in Gilroy, and Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Grenache and Syrah from Chirala Estates in Morgan Hill. Sampling on our Soli Deo Gloria (Merlot, Cabernet, Petite Sirah) and Coop Vineyards (source of Let There Be White) are ongoing. We'll be picking every weekend between now and mid October, and tending to our new wines around the clock for punchdown and pressing. A highlight this year is having a forklift with a bin tipper feeding a new destemmer, so we're not shoveling tons of fruit into our original "hobby size" machine. Last year we put 40 tons through it, and it deserved a rest, as well as our cellar crew's backs.
This week's Releases: These wines will be on a SPECIAL DISCOUNT this weekend ONLY!!!!
