The adventure of nurturing a vineyard through a complete season, harvesting its bounty and creating the elixir of wine is a rich and rewarding experience.

Congratulations on your blog. Tasting the wine you are making is like a trip to Valhalla for my Norwegian tongue. Please send some to Tokyo.

Whew!!! The hard work of making wine this year is nearly over. The last of the Zin and Cab were pressed out this past weekend. The wine is resting now, as am I. It is a time for maturation, completion of the M-L fermentation, and settling. In a few weeks I'll begin pumping the wines into French Oak barrels for their continuing journey to the bottle. The whole process is not unlike raising a child. The more hard work and attention put in on the front end the more likely the end result will be delightful. Neglect and inattention results in difficult, unruly and sometimes distasteful products.
