Video: 2017 Fall Harvest

Fall is our busiest time of year, as we har­vest the grapes we’ve been care­ful­ly cul­ti­vat­ing since spring. It’s also the best time to vis­it our estate! Our tast­ing room is next to our win­ery and open crush­pad, so you’ll be able to see the grapes being hand sort­ed, wine being pressed, and all of the oth­er fall wine­mak­ing tasks.

Antonio Galloni’s 2016 Vinous Reviews
