This August, our harvest yielded a beautifully colored Syrah, some hearty Zinfandel and our first Tempranillo, Malbec and Cabernet Franc.
THE PICK AND CRUSH Fall 2018
PLANTING PARTIES Spring '13, '15, '16, '17
ZINFANDEL & SYRAH
No one knew when they arrived to help plant our first vines in 2013 that it would be the hottest day of the year! All of our volunteers deserve a special award for those hours of toil and love they gave to each delicate vine.
TEMPRANILLO, MALBEC, CAB FRANC
In 2015, we planted three delectible blending varietals. The awesome crew did a fantastic job. That Fall, our first Syrah and Zinfandel grapes became part of the family. We netted early and enjoyed a fruitful harvest thanks to each one of our "vineyard minions" without whom we would be lost.
VIOGNIER & CABERNET SAUVIGNON
2016 was ambitious, planting our first white grapes. Once again, the crew was stellar and the vines quickly showed signs of growth.
MOURVEDRE & GRENACHE
2017 we chose to add the two varietals which we will use to blend our GSM.
THE TASTING ROOM Fall 2018
This year, our industrious plans to build a tasting room are shaping up nicely. Using local high desert companies who specialize in the custom design we required, the "barn" should be open for tasting in the next few months.
MERLOT & CHARDONNAY Fall 2018
This year, we sourced local grapes and produced our first white wine, Chardonnay, and a very delicious Merlot. Sorry folks...these two won't be ready to bottle for another year. Keep checking back with us.
