May 2016 Bottling - Chardonnay, Right Bank, Cunat Reserve

A couple weeks back we bottled our 2015 Chardonnay as well as our 2014 Right Bank and Cunat Reserve. May also marks one year of us opening the doors! We've come a long way, but there is still lots to be accomplished. We can't wait to share with you the development of our wine adventures.

Happy Spring! We've received some much needed rain the past couple of weeks. Budbreak also started in the valley and at Cunat Family Vineyards. Only time will tell how the crops will be this year, but we're hopeful!

Harvest 2015 at Cunat Family Vineyards

We are excited to share some amazing moments during our inaugural crush at Cunat Family Vineyards and Winery. The harvest crew and production team (including our harvest interns!) worked long days and hours and we can't thank them enough for all their hard work to make it a success. This marked one of the earliest harvests ever and even though there were low yields, the quality wasn't compromised. We can't wait to share the fruits of our labor.

+POOL Fall Swim Gala 2015

+POOL, co-founded by designers Dong-Ping Wong, Oana Stanescu, Archie Lee Coates IV, and Jeffrey Franklin, is a project that will dually function as a floating public pool and water filtration system in New York City's East River. Friendly to families and competitive swimmers alike, the Olympic-sized pool will filter over 500,000 gallons of river water everyday, releasing notable amounts of swimmable water into New York waterways. As every Californian knows, access to clean water is a prevalent local concern, but it is also a mounting global crisis. We support +POOL and their forward thinking initiatives.

First Grapes

As the first grapes arrived on our crush pad, there was an excited tension in the air. Our production crew anxiously awaited to get the brand new equipment up and running. Below are a few snap shots of the morning. More to come soon when we, the Cunat Family, harvest and begin the process with our own fruit.
