It’s been quite some time since we’ve posted a new update. With the weather we’ve had the past few winters, this year we were very excited for bud break and the warmth that spring has afforded us. To keep you updated throughout the harvest, we thought that we’d follow a specific grape from bud break through finished wine. So for the 2015 vintage, we’ll be following our Pinot Gris from the Hummels Hill Vineyard (the vineyard located at the winery). With a cool start to the season, bud break was later than normal. On April 30th, we toasted to the start of Vintage 2015!
Over the past two weeks, we saw amazing weather – dry, and unseasonably warm (I think to make up for the past 5 months)! So over the course of one week, the vines saw amazing growth!
Only 2 weeks into vintage 2015, anything can happen. As long as the weather continues on this course, we could have an early harvest. We’ll be excited to share how the growing season progresses throughout the summer and how the fermentation follows through the fall.
Each time you visit the winery for a tasting, you can see how the Pinot Gris is fairing. As your coming out of the tasting room onto our patio, the Pinot Gris is directly on the left. The wonderful thing about vines is that each year is completely different, and we look forward to sharing this one with you!
