2020 Harvest Pre-Sale

2020 Harvest Pre-Sale

Well, 2020 has been a year.

Update October 16: The juice has been delayed by 10-11 days due to shipping constraints in Europe. This will push back the arrival of the 2020 juices towards the end of November, and wines made with new juices will be pushed back a bit too.  

This year we were unable to go to Europe to collect the juices ourself. Thankfully, we have great friends and partners in Europe who were able to get everything prepared (in record time we might add). So, we are happy to announce that we will have a full load of fresh juice for this year!!!

When it comes to the juices, we're happy to report that the summer in Europe was very hot and dry which is fantastic for the grapes. The juices are higher in sugar in previous years, which will lead to higher alcohol, and fuller bodied wines! We're very excited. 

Some of the reds look really big this year! I am looking forward to trying out the Cabernet, as well as the Barbera! For the Whites, I think one of the first wines I will make is a medium oaked Chardonnay. 

We expect the 2020 juices to arrive in mid November, for wines made on-site this means the wines will be ready after the holidays. 

2020 Pre-Sale

Starting today we are offering a pre-sale on all of our new juices! From now until they arrive in mid November we're offering 5% of our current prices. 

How to Order?

Simply visit, email, or call us to reserve your batch of the 2020 harvest.
