Viticulture

2015 was another drought year marked by a warm January and early bud break. While much of the valley saw large amounts of shatter in the vineyards drastically reducing the 2015 crop, our vineyard typically flowers later and escaped much of the detrimental effects of the weather and allowed us to maintain our normal average of 3.2 tons/acre. A steady summer with periodic heat waves produced fruit with small berries and thicker skins yielding good concentration in the wines. Harvest at the estate began mid September and concluded on October 2.
