Winter weather has arrived in Sonoma County, the chill is very apparent where ever you go. Harvest is complete and the year is winding down, but there is still plenty going on at the ranch and in the cellar!
Sometimes the best Holiday gifts are the ones you make yourself! We’ve collected a bunch of DIY gift ideas, from cozies for bottles and glasses to cork trivets and garden markers, for all levels of crafters.
Every year in July our estate grown fruit begins veraison, their skins slowly transitioning from unripe green to Pinot Noir red. It’s the end of growth and the onset of ripening; a time when the acidity of the fruit begins to wane and sugars begin to accumulate. There’s a subtle change in the air of the vineyard, the promise of flavors and aromas on the cusp of becoming reality.
There are more reasons than ever to celebrate Sonoma County Wine Month in 2020—for starters, the fact that we can celebrate. So, we’re embracing the spirit of celebration by expanding our range of tasting experiences. Some of them are new, some are old favorites, and all are a salute to all things Pinot Noir!
