Harvest is approching and it is time for us to look at our grapes sourcing and make sure all is in balance (i.e. we have just enough of everything for each wine we make). Below is a synopsis of what harvest will look like for us:
– 3,181 tons of grapes or 203,000 cases of wines – our largest harvest yet
– 92.2% Riesling, 97.1% White grapes (Gewurzt and Chenin). We have a little Gamay coming this year (plus our usual Barbeara, Sangiovese and Primitivo blend)
– 1/3 of our Riesling from Wallula 2/3 from the lower Yakima Valley
Next week I will be touring all our blocks to confirm quality and volume. Ready, set, Go!
