Harvest is in full swing for us in the cellar!
We already have multiple white lots happily fermenting and with the upcoming heat wave, the reds might not be far behind.
So far we have received Chardonnay, Symphony, and Pinot Gris, with our Chenin Blanc coming in by the time this article is out. And yes, that's right, this year we are going to add Pinot Gris to our line up! It is normally early to ripen, and was our first ferment this season, and so far it smells fantastic. One interesting fact about Pinot Gris is that, unlike most white varietals, it has a deep blue-grey colored fruit. As you can see in the pictures, it almost looked like a red wine when it came in!
Now that our white wines are fermenting, it is the perfect time to swing by the tasting room. We always try to have a sample or two available for everyone to taste, and there is nothing like a freshly fermenting white wine!
