The 2009 Crush Is Complete
The last bin of Cabernet Sauvignon was crushed today. All the juice and must is now in the cellar. The winery is alive with the sweet scent of grape juice and the yeasty aromas of the fermentations. The 2009 vintage is looking to be a good year. There were less grapes due to the winter damage of 2008/2009. Frost set in earlier than usual (mid October), encouraging an early harvest. Despite the hurry, the quality is top notch.
The wine shop is open as long as we are down in the cellar working on the wines. To avoid disappointment, call ahead. 250.769.9224
