July 2010 Vineyard Update

Thu, July 15, 2010

It has been a very mild and pleasant summer here in Calistoga. Eating a lot of squash from the garden while anxiously eyeing the green tomatoes and small melons. Our above average Winter/Spring rainfall has manifested an abundance of all sorts of edible things here at the winery. Never seen so many olives on the trees. In the next several days we will begin thinning fruit from the Syrah vineyard in front of the winery. The mild weather has vineyards running about 2-3 weeks behind the 2009 harvest. I’m predicting a very late harvest with plenty of hang time for the fruit and of course exceptional wines. Stay tuned.

The latest wine club shipment has just gone out. A delicious combo of 2007 Zinfandel and 2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy!

To our club members and special guests, call ahead to make arrangements for our VIP group treatment. Barrel tastings, food pairings and more can be arranged by request.
