Bud break marks the beginning of the grape vine’s annual growing season. After a Winter of dormancy, warmer soil conditions push water and nutrients up through the root system. Buds developed in the previous growing season swell and begin to push tiny shoots, and the first sign of green emerges in the vineyard.
Bottling started around July 27th this year.
The tasty juice has been sitting in barrel, just waiting for its moment to shine. We feel that French Oak gives the grapes the best opportunity to show their true personality. From the Barrel Aged Sauvignon Blanc (6 months in barrel), to the inaugural Bordeaux Blend (24 months in Barrel), they all took different paths until finally settling again in the bottle.
