With the cooler Spring we experienced this season, it calls for a later harvest date. The Pinot Noir is looking great along with the Chardonnay, and should be ready to be picked later this month. Come and check out the beautiful clusters for yourself! We are hoping for a warm early Fall to help ripen the Merlot, Cab Franc, and Cab Sauv as their harvest dates are looking to be in early October. As a reference, all the grapes were harvested before September last year!
Century Plant Update!
The rare plant that flowers once every 25 to 30 years has finally bloomed! The Agave succulent plant flower buds have finally opened into large yellow pom-poms. After the flowering process is done, the plant will die off from all the energy it took to bloom. The flowers have attracted lots of bees and hummingbirds. It is quite a sight to see! We are open Fri-Sun 12-5pm with a Friday Happy Hour from 5-7pm.
