Each Pinot Noir clone has its own special characteristics. Assistant Vineyard Manager Riggs Lokka is going to tell us more about each clone and show us how to identify different clones by cluster shape!
Things are starting to get busy again. The barrels have all been tasted and put into one of the 12 different wines we will bottle this summer, we began racking last week, and our cellar interns are all ready for the coming harvest season!
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.
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!
