The Vineyards

Record-breaking rainfall kicked off the 2017 season, filling the water table to capacity and replenishing soiils. A mild spring brought bud break at the usual time while a hot summer concluded on Labor Day weekend with a heat wave of 110 F, causing harvest to move up by a week or so. Most ofo the fruit was all picked before the heartbreaking October fires and vintners share a positive outlook on the 2017 wines. The fruit has rich color, defined flavoros and exceptional quality across varieties.
