2013 Harvest, Crush and Press Complete
Early on October 10, we completed the 2013 harvest amidst beautiful conditions. Totaling over 3 tons of fruit, the 2013 harvest represents our largest production for the winery. The fruit was handpicked from roughly 450 dedicated vines and was hauled immediately to the winery for crush. After a 5-day cold soak, fermentation was initiated, and on November 1 pressing was completed. Now, it’s 15-months of barrel aging in a mix of new and neutral American oak. We can’t wait for our first barrel taste in a few months to see how things are developing!
