Harvest 2014 Update #2

August 5, 2014

Oakville is currently pretty quiet, although the grapes are ripening at a furious pace, or at least that’s how it feels. Oakville sauvignon blanc will be picked first, and it should be early. We could start picking the week of Aug. 14, as early as we ever have, if not earlier. Overall, yields look good, for all varieties: not high nor low. Vines naturally set just about the right amount of fruit. Quality looks great.”

Harvest 2014 Update #1

July 13, 2014

“As veraison nears completion, and continued warm sunny days advance ripening we may see a start to the picking of the Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc fruit as early as the 3rd week in August.

We are very excited about the upcoming harvest. Barring any major heat spikes the warm weather should bring about even ripening, and intense fruit character throughout our vineyards.”
