At The Winery
Spring is here, but the story of the year so far has been and continues to be the rain. This very wet weather is a welcome change from previous dry years, but we’re ready for some sunshine and warm evenings!
The vineyards are getting ready to start the new vintage and bud break is expected in the coming weeks. In fact, it has already started in some parts of the valley. The culinary garden is producing the last bounty from the winter crops and as soon as the weather warms up a bit, the summer crops will start to be planted. We can’t wait to start pairing our delicious wines with fresh fruits and veggies from the summer garden!
In an effort to bring spring weather with sheer willpower, we released our ever-popular Rosé, along with some of our favorite white wines. In addition to Sauvignon Blanc and Blend 23, we bottled two brand new white wines – 2021 Viognier and 2022 Albariño. We didn’t make very much of those new wines, so make sure to stock up while you can. They are simply delightful.
The next few months are going to be spectacular in Napa Valley. With all of the rain, the wildflowers will be at an all-time high and the green hills will make for a picture-perfect backdrop. We would love to see you at the winery so please give us a call to book your reservation.
In The Kitchen
The first day of Spring has passed, and we are starting to see more sunshine in the valley after three months of bountiful rain. Chef is playing with that in-between season feeling. Featuring a fun spring bite for the first pairing, highlighting our estate honey and ever-popular Blend 23. The next pairings focus on richer, heartier dishes paired with heavier wines that can be enjoyed year round.
New Releases This Month
Rosé has become much more than just another type of wine. It symbolizes the start of warmer weather and sun-soaked gatherings. The stunning color, refreshing flavors, and youthful exuberance are the perfect way to welcome spring and celebrate throughout the summer months. It’s fun to drink, perfect to share, and easy to match with all sorts of fresh summer cuisine. Our Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes using whole cluster fermentation.
Initial aromas of melon, strawberry, and wet stone emerge from the glass, followed by a burst of juicy fruit and citrus on the palate. Watermelon, strawberry, raspberry, bracing acidity, and a clean finish.
