    2024 February Updates

    As we leave January, the month that seemingly never ends behind us, we roll into the shortest month of the year.

    This month kicks off with Atmospheric Rivers bringing a series of very wet and windy storms thru the area. Flood warnings and wind advisories are in place for at least the first week of the month. This will at least insure a heavy soaking and will make the final prep and planting in the vineyard a lot easier. It is really the wind that is what you need to watchout for.

  • In the Barrel

    A short take on the 2023 vintage. 2023 will be remembered for a relatively cool summer, that provided excellent hang time on fruit. In general terms the summer was a relief from recent very warm summers. An added bonus was that this was a year without major wild fires.

  • Winemaker's Blog

    'Hurry up and wait"............ It's a classic line that has all too much truth within it. Everything is now in place for finishing the first vineyard block. Spring is 6 weeks out, and now it is simply picking the window to plant the vines. It need to be dry enough to work in the vineyard, but also cool enough so that the vines get a chance to adapt and settle in before the summer heat arrives. Last year there was just enough spring to get the trellis in before summer arrived, which was by far the more demanding task. So this Spring we are set and ready to go.

    As promised we'll give you a chance to see all of this via youtube. Stay tuned.......
