We have officially wrapped up our picking season as of Saturday, September 18th! The winery is still abuzz with activity and will be for a few more weeks as the last picks become wine, but it feels great to have gotten so much done.
“Pinot Noir is the varietal I cut my teeth on, and it is still the one I love the most. Making a great Pinot Noir—one with nuance, elegance and a deep and meaningful sense of place—is incredibly difficult, and to me is the ultimate challenge.”
Rosendo, part of Team Emeritus since 1999, is a two-time Sonoma County Pruning Champion and leads our crew when it comes to pruning and training both young and newly grafted vines to produce top quality grapes.
Every day is Pinot Noir day for us, especially now that harvest has started, but today it’s Pinot Noir day for the rest of the country, too. August 18th is National Pinot Noir Day, a time to pay homage to one of the world’s most popular wines!
If you’re feeling stressed, try relaxing your brain with a low-stakes activity that helps you focus on something besides whatever’s weighing on your mind. Like unwinding at the end of the day with a glass of wine and some coloring!
