Time to Celebrate

LDV Winery
Summertime at Lawrence Dunham Vineyards is a busy time. Not only are we celebrating our country’s birthday but our first white wine release – 2011 Viognier. It is 100% Viognier fruit from our vineyard that was fermented and finished in stainless steel tanks. We are still awaiting label approval and printing, but patience is a virtue and this wine is well worth the wait.
LDV Winery
Starting the second week in July we will bottling four different wines. Our 2010 Grenaches and Petite Sirahs are finally ready to be bottled. They have been barrel aged over 21 months.
If you want to get out of the heat and join us for some summertime fun helping to bottle, give us a call or send us an email.

The vineyard looks absolutely awesome. The monsoons have begun, though weakly. The vines are full with grapes and verasion should start later this month. We love this time of year as the grapes turn from green to beautiful purple.

Include us in your summertime travel. We have quite a few events in July and August so plan on attending them and introducing us to some of your friends.

Have a safe and wonderful July 4th!
