Production Notes

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