Here at the Schoolhouse, the aromas of ripening grapes means that Harvest is upon us! Our Estate Pinot Noir is ripe and ready to be picked first with Chardonnay to follow. Vintage 2013 is shaping up to be spectacular with excellent quality and quantity along with fantastic flavors. We’ll be posting updates on Facebook with all the harvest news—sugar levels, picking dates, and tonnage along with ample photos of all the harvest scene.
Lucky visitors to the tasting room get to experience everything in real time, plus taste grapes and freshly squeezed juice. It’s a once a year experience not to be missed!
