We are deep into it now. The winery is starting to fill up, and we’ll be picking all the rest of our blocks Tuesday through Friday this week, unless the weather does something bizarre and unexpected. So far, the fruit we’ve brought in has been absolutely pristine- there has literally been nothing to remove on [...]

It’s literally been a year in the making, but here we go! Harvest 2014 starts tomorrow morning – we’ll pick our three acres of Nysa in the Dundee Hills, and then roll on to Ribbon Ridge, Azana and Maresh over the next 10 days or so. Everything is looking very good, and at this point [...]

We are getting close. Or at least closer. Took our first samples at Ribbon Ridge this morning – from a flavor perspective I’d guess we’re 10 days or so away yet. Will run numbers in the lab this afternoon – Kelley is getting ready for bottling the 2013s tomorrow… We’re looking at sunny and hi-70s [...]

Every once in a while I get to step back into my former rock & roll life for a few minutes. I spent 30-some years in that world and had a fantastic time. I did it until it wasn’t fun anymore, and stepped away to follow my crazy dream of making wine. It was a [...]

All of us in the wine business know not to count our chickens before they’re hatched, but I can say that we’ve got some nice looking eggs in the nest at this point, and the weather has continues to cooperate. Even though we’ve had a string of days in the high 80s to low 90s, [...]

A perfect first day in Champagne – bright sun, breezy and 70 degrees. What a day to take a walk in the vineyards with Sophie Cossy in Jouy-lès-Reims. Several of her parcels were being plowed by horse today, with her friend Cyril at the reins (he works fulltime for Chartogne-Taillet, and works some vines for [...]

It is stunningly beautiful here in Champagne this morning, birds chirping as I took my morning run through the vineyards, everything lush and green and looking very healthy indeed. I arrived yesterday afternoon in a jet-lagged haze (which only seems to get worse as one gets older, btw) – but after a good 9-hour sleep [...

The first flowers are out – in about 15-20% of the clusters at Ribbon Ridge Vyd., with our other sites about a week behind, I would guess. Weather is ideal for flowering right now, so if it holds we should have everything in bloom over the next week or so. This would put the harvest [...]

Wow – what a whirlwind couple of days in New York. Huge thanks to all of the great restaurants, sommeliers, and retailers for a warm welcome and all of your amazing support! There are about 8,000 domestic wine brands in the US now, not to mention the thousands of imports – and the fact that [...]

So far we’ve been blessed with a beautiful start to the growing season. Our vines are healthy and happy, as we await the critical flowering period in the next 10 days or so. If I could order up some nice warm, dry, still days, we could be in excellent shape. I’ll let you know as [...]

90 degrees in Portland on May 1st? That’s the forecast. Spring means many things around here, but mostly it means a little bit of everything. Sunny and 90 will quickly become rainy and 50 to be followed by hail and 39 – sometimes all in the same day! In the meantime, the vines are enjoying [...]

We’ve had several days of warm sunshine here in the valley, and the vines are waking up indeed. Looks like we’re on track for a “normal” window for bud-break here in mid-to-late April.
