We've had an early start to Harvest this year!
Starting on August 31st, we picked Pinot Noir for our Noblesse Oblige Sparkling Rosé. This marks the earliest we have ever picked grapes! 2021 has not been easy year thus far, with Hurricane Henri and Ida giving us two big scares, luckily with no disasters.
On a brighter note, we have had a warm year overall which is helping with ripe flavor development. Measured in growing degree days, we align perfectly with two dream vintages, 2019 and 2020. Besides slightly more rain this year, we are looking confident towards a good vintage and with a bit of luck and lots of sunshine the next 7 weeks we could make some spectacular wines!
As noted above, growing degree days base 50F, starting March 1 are;
2019 – 2367
2020 – 2304
2021 – 2366

It is an exhilarating time here at the winery. The harvest aromas are in the air and we hope you stop by to see the bustling activities in the crush pad!
Cheers to 2021!
