As 2022 winds down, we are reflecting on a large and fantastic harvest that capped a busy year at the winery.
Even with spring frost, we were able to harvest a record 48 tons of fruit. That translates into about 3000 cases of finished wine. Not bad for our start in Vincent’s garage some years back.
Not only did we make our usual favorites from the Willamette Valley, this year we started two new projects that you’ll hear more about in the next year.
First, a Tempranillo from a small, very special site in southern Oregon. Think the great reds of central Spain, made in our simple way to accentuate the fruit and the place it grew. This wine won’t release until 2024 but we’ll update the mailing list in ’23 as it progresses.
Then we did something a little crazy – we began working with a top grower in Napa Valley and harvested 3 tons of prime Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from two vineyards, brought the fruit to Oregon and made the wine. There’s a great story here, and the new wine is fantastic in barrel. More on this special project in 2023 as well. We’re naming this wine…stay tuned.
For now – we have wines available for sale on the Buy Wine page. Email us your selections from that page and we’ll follow up.
Also, in February we’ll have our next special prerelease offer to the mailing list on new wines coming in spring. Get on our mailing list. You always have first crack at all the wine, at the best prices we offer.
Happy holidays and happy new year from Vincent and co.
