Dean's List Spring Pickup Party

We hosted our first Dean's List Pickup Party on April 8th and partnered with the Napa Valley Film Festival. As a benefit to local pickup members, we released our inaugural 2015 Reserve Chardonnay Southworth, 2016 Viognier and 2013 Midnight. Select short films were shown on behalf of NVFF to gear up for the 2017 festival in November. Our Dean's List members also receive a special rate with exclusive hotels and inns including the Hampton Inn & Suites Napa, who also attended with a table setup for a complimentary night's stay. We plan to host another pickup party for the Fall shipment so stay tuned on details!

Mustard Flowers / Cover Crop / Canes

We love this time of year here in Napa Valley. A welcome break from the torrential (but much needed) rain allowed for our vineyard management team to prune and tie canes in our vineyard. Our cover crop (grown for the protection and enrichment of the soil) consists of alternate rows of legumes such as Austrian winter peas, barley as well as mustard. Come visit our vineyard to see the gorgeous and bright mustard flowers.

Napa Valley Film Festival 2016

We had such a blast attending and participating our first Napa Valley Film Festival and can't wait to do it all over again for 2017. Even though the power went out the night we hosted our Vintner Circle Dinner, miraculously the power came on right before guests arrived and everyone enjoyed the evening. Of the movies we were able to watch, we recommend "Gold" and "Lion". Looking forward to seeing you all this November!

Harvest is among us!

We picked the first of our grapes and it was Viognier! The Sauvignon Blanc is usually the first to be harvested, but the Viognier decided it was its turn. Picking began bright and early around 5:30am. The fruit was supple and sweet. Here are a couple of pictures and more to come as harvest continues!
