Harvest 2011

It has begun. This past Saturday Viognier arrived from Sierra Vista Vineyard in Sasabe, AZ. Melissa Owen is the grower for this unique plot of earth just adjacent to the Mexican Border. Harvest always fills the winery with excitement and promise. White grapes ripen before red grapes and lead the vintage - a harbinger of the year to come. The 2010 Viognier from this same vineyard is a lovely white wine and is currently on the tasting table. This 2011 fruit will certainly make a wine every bit as delightful.
