It's feeling like Summer!
July is here, the days are long, the evenings are warm, and we've been busy! The vineyard has been mowed and spaded, the vines had all the extra shoots removed, the long canes are tucked up into the wires, and now we are opening up the canopy to let in light and air. The vines flowered under perfect conditions and it looks as if we will have full clusters. The next stip will be to determine our potential fruit load in a couple of weeks, and then start the crop thinning process. It's still looking to be another early harvest season, but time will tell.
And in between busy days in the vineyard, we've had time for fun. Thank you all who came to the annual Taste of the Ranch! Wonderful weather, great friends, delicious food, and yes, Yorba Wines. We were thrilled to introduce the stunning 2009 Tempranillo. We are planning another Dinner and a Show with the Sutter Creek Theater, the Greco debut (our first white wine), and possibly a Cowboy Dinner out at the old barn followed by an al fresco showing an old classic, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Summertime is here!
Come visit us here in Sutter Creek and enjoy our gorgeous scenery, and then stay for the great hospitality. Join us on our deck for a glass of wine and a delicious platter of artisan cheeses or our antipasto medley. And relax!
