Our family owned vineyards performed amazingly this year, Hillcrest pumping out a record-breaking 6 tons of Pinot Noir and Thieriot coming close to a new record with just over 8 tons of Chardonnay. With high sugars and acids we expect bright fruit and strong structure which should make for some excellent wines that will age exceptionally well.
And finally we can’t praise our new winemaker, Thomas Brown, enough. He brought everything through natural fermentation and has a great looking oak regime set up to maximize the unique flavors of our vineyards. We’re very excited to be working with him as our wines will benefit from his many years of experience making some of the best wines Sonoma and Napa has to offer. Stay tuned to our brand new website for a 2012 release announcement, and thank you all for reading! We look forward to sharing a glass with you and toasting the end of harvest!
