Harvest 2014 Update

And just like that it’s harvest time again! A wonderfully cool, mostly dry summer has kept our grapes happy as they begin to develop some delicious flavors in the vineyard. This is our 5th overall vintage and 4th leaf for the majority of our vines. Every year there are new variables and new pieces to the puzzle of doing the best we can in the vineyard to produce the best fruit for wine. Visitors to the tasting room will notice lots of winemaking activity going on! Please excuse our mess during this busy time of year.

2012 Chardonnay “Editors’ Choice” in October 2014 Wine Enthusiast Magazine

The 2012 Chardonnay has been rated 87 points and designated as “Editors’ Choice” in the October 2014 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Andrew Hoover elaborates in the review: “Toasted pasty-crust and macadamia nut notes frame core aromas of white orchard fruits. The palate tastes concentrated and feels round, and snappy acids invigorate the finish”.

The Rock Barn Pork Products Available in Tasting Room

We have to agree with The Rock Barn‘s credos: “Pigs are delicious. There is perhaps no animal that boasts as rich a culinary tradition as the pig. All over the world, hogs are being transformed into dishes that are synonymous with local flavor”.  As longtime fans of their respectful sourcing and craft cuts of these animals, we are excited to bring Rock Barn products into our Tasting Room. These include some of our favorite smoked options such as bacon, smoked sausages, and hams as well as fresh items such as pork loins and fresh sausages. If there’s anything specific you’d like us to stock just give us a call or shoot us an email.
