Vineyard {511} Our Vineyard

July brought the beautiful colors of veraison, the onset of ripening when the grapes grow in size, their color changes from green to purple, and their hard berries soften as they gain sugars.
Vineyard {511} Veraison - July 23, 2016

Another mild winter contributed to an early harvest on September 26--two weeks earlier in the year than it was last year, when we thought we had had an early harvest. Both summers were warm, and we ended up harvesting at a 26 brix. Our vineyard management company, John Deer Farms, arrived at the vineyard at 5 am and worked away feverishly, but carefully, until around 9:30 am. They work tirelessly, and we really depend on them to do the great job that they do.

Fun Things
Calistoga's Third Annual Harvest Table

What do you feed 800 dinner guests? Luckily, 13 of Calistoga's restaurants shared the burden during Calistoga's 3rd Annual Harvest Table. This unique event saw white-linen-tablecloth-covered tables, decorated with lovely sunflowers, stretch all the way down Lincoln Avenue, which was closed to traffic. Some of the restaurants that participated were the Calistoga Inn, Brannan's, Johnny's, Checkers and the Culinary Institute of America. Volunteers manned wine stations selling wine provided by wineries from the Calistoga AVA.
