Warm Winter Wishes to all of our Yorba friends!
So to all of you, our best wishes for an amazing 2016!
We love this time of year. Rain is falling, vines are sleeping, cover crop is growing, and the sky is either bright blue or threatening black. The stormy days have finally come to bless us with much needed rain. Our glimpses of the Sierras show snow covered mountains, a strong promise for this season's snow pack and the ultimate refill of our well's aquifer. The vineyard is asleep and all is quiet on the front until we start pruning in late February.
In the winery, however, the wines are still keeping us busy. White wines ferment at cold temperatures which often results in a very slow process. Both the Greco di Oro and the new Rosado are almost complete and the reds have all been put down to barrel - "put to bed" in a sense. Now it's time to sit back and reflect on this past vintage and start planning for the next season.
