No more wine. Nada. Zilch. Well, maybe a little left. If you’ve been following us on Facebook or Twitter or receive our e-newsletter, you know we are sold out of our wine. We have no more 2008 Storm Front left at the winery, but some of our retail partners may have some. We have a few cases of 2010 Dewpoint Riesling left, but we need to save them for upcoming events. Essentially we are sold out of wine.
So what’s next? We recently blended two new red wines for bottling soon and release this fall. The raw materials are in the photo above. Storm Front will return, with more grapes invited to the party. We will also have a special limited production red wine that we will offer first to our e-mail list. If any is left, we will offer it to the public. If you haven’t signed up yet, now is a good time to do it. Sign up here.
We are also working on grapes for this fall. I can’t believe that crush is about 3 months away! Some areas of Washington suffered a severe freeze last November, with some vineyards losing up to half of their vines. So far, our sources seem to be ok, but a few more weeks into what has been another cool growing season will tell. We plan to visit vineyards in July or August and will post photos and a full report then.
Until then, thank you for supporting us in our first full year as a winery. We are looking forward to our 2009 red wine release this fall. Our 2010 wines are fruity, balanced and just wonderful. Hopefully 2011 will give us the same quality of fruit.
