After a couple of years searching we think we found the perfect Merlot site. Beautifully farmed by Chuy Ordaz on the volcanic rocky soils of Moon Mountain. This week we picked 1.3 tons of pristine fruit. Looking forward to releasing this wine later next year!
Meanwhile up in Redwood Valley, Mendocino a heat wave settled in. Myself, Cassidy ( our assistant winemaker ) and friends got to work and harvested a smaller chardonnay vineyard.
