2017 Annual Blending Event

Another successful blending session happened this past weekend and we can't wait until we can share the finished product. Especially two new wines that have never been produced before. We were very impressed with how the 2015 red wines were tasting as this was the kickoff year to harvest and then crush at our winemaking facility. Below are some snapshots and a quick video of the day.

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.
