Production Notes

Winemakers across Napa Valley reported another stellar
harvest for 2016. Bud break began early due to a warm spring,
and the summer season saw moderate daytime temperatures
with cool evenings. Harvest began in mid-August with the
picking of our white grape varietals. October brought heavy
rains which put a swift end to a successful harvest.
