The 2013 Harvest is here! My team and I have just finished up bottling which will help clear tank space for the incoming grapes. This week we have been busy harvesting both Muscat Canelli and Viognier. These are highly aromatic white grapes that must be picked at their peak of ripeness to capture the beauty of their exotic aromas and flavors. We also have a new variety that we will be experimenting with for the first time. This spicy, aromatic, white grape is called Arneis. It a prized variety from Northern Italy and has been grown with interesting results in Northern California. Wilson Creek will be one of the pioneer wineries to see how wines made from Arneis turn out from Southern California Vineyards!
Happy Harvesting! -Etienne Cowper
