Winter is here at Shake Ridge. We had out first snowfall yesterday, and it is a winter wonderland. Any leaves still on the vine have received the news that it is indeed time to fall off and return to the earth. This is the season to stroll through the vines rows, evaluating last vintage's growth. Vines that struggled and were too weak will be given a little extra attention next pruning season. The vines that were too vigorous will be asked to do a bit more to get into balance. That is the key word - balance!
And when it is time to warm up, head down to the tasting room. All ready for the holidays - it's full of fresh cut Christmas tree, twinkling lights and the sound of laughter of friends and family. Come on in and visit with us over a glass of Yorba wine, a platter of delicious food and check out our Yorba gift ideas.
