Strolling Through the Vineyards

One of the best things about summer is enjoying the sunshine and outdoors.  This is especially true when you work at a beautiful winery in gorgeous Calistoga.  The extreme heat has spared us so far this August, so I’ve been loving taking time to get outside for a lunchtime walk in the vineyard.  I take photos of what might be going on in our vineyard, see some friendly faces and get a little Vitamin D and exercise all at the same time.  Last week, I took some photos of veraison, which is occurring right now in our Estate Vineyard, as the grapes turn from green to purple and we inch nearer towards harvest.  I also stopped by the bottling line to see our crew bottling the 2010 Chardonnay (to be released next year!).  It’s a beautiful time of year – if you make it to the Napa Valley anytime soon, be sure to stop by and see for yourself and check out the new, special Chardonnay tasting offers as we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1976 Paris Tasting.  In the meantime, enjoy these photos of our current happenings:
