Harvest 2017 Update
We started before dawn on September 8, and this year we harvested both the Zinfandel and Petite Sirah on the same day. We are excited about the quality of the fruit with the heavy rains last winter promoting healthy vine growth. The heatwave we encountered at the end of August was certainly a challenge, but careful canopy management in the vineyard minimized its impact. Kian is busy in the winery and fermentation has already finished. Not much longer before we’ll have the first wine, our Rosé, available. Stay tuned!
As a quick note: The 2014 Zin is nearly sold out. To purchase some wine, please email us ASAP.
Exciting New Partnerships
In addition to all of the vineyard activities, we’ve been busy building great relationships to have our wines more available to the general public.
First, we are thrilled to have Mikami Vineyards Zinfandel now being served at San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 restaurant, Iyasare, in Berkeley. Iyasare has been consistently recognized as one of the finest modern Japanese restaurants in the Bay Area. Secondly, for our loyal customers in Japan, we are being served at the popular restaurant, Wine Terrace Yu-Me, located in the Fuchu area of Tokyo. Additionally, last month, we had a great time pouring our wines at the famous Olympic Club of San Francisco. Through all of these relationships, we hope to introduce our wines to folks who are as fanatical about handcrafted, limited production wines as you are.
