vineyardThe vineyard team has been both busy in the field and busy finishing up the expansion of the patio.

In the Vineyard? We’ve been busy removing the big bad weeds from under the plants. We are adding a nice thick mulch of fish fertilizer under the vines.This will give a great fertilizer, as well as help prevent some of the larger weeds from growing in. We want to add nice organic matter to the soil every year. After the weeds are handled we have started shoot thinning. This will allow us to ensure the correct number of shoots per plant creating an even ripening. Shoot thinning also permits good sun exposure and a nice airflow through the vines.

On the Patio? Rock wall building, grass growing, patio stones, plants, and something we are very soon excited to share with you…….(Keep you posted)

In the Cellar? The whites have all been bottled. Our 2013 Ortega, and 2013 Pinot Gris are now released. The reds sit and age in the barrels until they are ready to be bottled. 2012 Pinot Noir Release coming soon…..(Keep you posted)

What’s happening this weekend? Because it is the first day of summer tomorrow we are celebrating with our Summer Solstice Sangria, so stop in, say hello, chill on the patio, and fill a glass with the best tasting Sangria! Bring the Family for a game of badminton or Bocce Ball.

Cheers!
