Winter 2012

Winter has finally arrived here in the Valley. We are getting our first rainfall since the untimely rain in October of 2011 at the tail end of harvest. Speaking of harvest, we have finally put all our 2011 vintages down to barrels and are now busy racking older vintages and prepping for a winter bottling in February. Not much fruit from the 2011 vintage, but, really great qaulity.
The current wine club shipment for January is the 2007 “Two Red Heads” named for winemaker Scott Chafen’s two daughters. The wine is a blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Cabernet Franc.

To our club members and special guests, call ahead to make arrangements for our VIP group treatment. Barrel tastings and tours can be arranged by request. Our hospitality facilities are available for small corporate events and celebrations, and all details are available by calling us at 707-942-5771.
We look forward to seeing you soon, “The Dutch Henry Gang”
