Sangiovese Day

Yesterday we bottled about 80 cases of Sangiovese. This yummy Italian grape is in your favorite Chianti, and it's the first Canelo Hills red to be put in bottles. Tiffany and Tristan came down to help. Since they were such troopers, we filled, corked, and boxed a case of wine every few minutes.

We took a break for lunch and some barrel-tasting of the Syrah and Cabernet which have a little more stewing to do before they're ready for bottles. Already pretty tasty, though!

At the end of the hot day of work, we were ready for long naps, but as you can see, the dogs were still ready to rumble.
