With harvest approaching quicker than I’d like, the pressure is on to clear the tanks and make room for the 2009’s. I can now report that our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris will be bottled on September 14th, making the tentative release date around September 28th. Generally, I like to let the wines adjust to life in bottle for a couple of weeks prior to release, just to make sure they get all their kicking and screaming out.
In related news, we’re down to the last few cases of 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, so the timing of this release should work out just about right. After 18 long months spent maturing in bottle, our 2005 Cab Sauv is drinking well and ready to debut alongside the 2008 whites.
It occurs to me that we’ve never really had a “Grand Opening” for our winery, and I guess that’s just not our style. Instead, we’ve decided to celebrate our new release with all the people who have generously supported us since our inception. We’ll be emailing the details of this intimate event to those on our mailing list in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on your inbox!
Lucy patiently awaits the New Release…
