Winemaker's Notes

As 2022  is coming to a close and another vintage has come and passed, we take a moment of reflection in the cellar on where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. Firstly where we have been, the 2022 Vintage was very unforgiving for us in the GRV with a late season frost this spring there was minimal fruit for us to source in the valley though we were able to bring in some local fruit this vintage. This year sadly presented its self challenges for us and the surrounding areas. Secondly where we are received our montepuciano from California this year. As the wine finished with its primary fermentation and has completed the chemical process of Malolactic fermentation we begin to make blending considerations to make many of our favorite Laurello wines. Lastly where we are going with a symbolize crisp of vidal blanc still hanging patiently in the vineyard as we wait for the prime opportune moment to harvest to make our Ice wine, we wait joyfully for this which has become a annual tradition for us in the GRV


Best Regards from the Cellar!
