LDV Winery
This past year has been extraordinary for us. Thank you for your continued support and assistance in spreading the word about LDV.

The Signature Petite Sirah was honored at the Arizona Wine Growers Association annual competition, we were the featured winery on a cruise down the Rhine River, the list of fine restaurants carrying LDV wines is growing, the Wine Gallery opened, and LDV had a terrific harvest.
Stop by the Wine Gallery and pick up some of your holiday gifts this year. Shopping and drinking are just two of my favorite things. For a more complete list of My Favorite Things, check out Peggy’s December blog http://www.ldvwinery.com/blog.html or check out Curt’s latest video about the bottling process of the 2013 Sky Island Viognier which will be available in the Wine Gallery for purchase in January 2015. http://www.ldvwinery.com/ldv-videos_Bottling-2013-SIViognier.html

Always ask for LDV when you are out to dinner. It really helps to spread the word.

LDV Comes to Scottsdale

After months of remodeling a charming house and with great anticipation, LDV opened a full-time tasting room and retail premise in downtown Scottsdale – 6951 E. 1st Street (click for map).

We are thrilled by the reception the location has received. To date, we have hosted a number of associations and private parties.

LDV Wine Gallery
These include the Scottsdale concierge group, convention and visitors’ bureau, two groups of international media, a local wine lovers group, women’s entrepreneurial group, and hundreds of visitors.

The Grand Opening on November 20th had close to 100 people enjoying music on the patio, great food, and of course LDV wine.

Winery Update

LDV Winery After a successful harvest this fall, all of the wines have completed fermentation and are in either stainless steel tanks or barrels. Looks like our 2014 production will be just a shade under 2,000 cases, similar to last year.

We bottled our 2013 Sky Island Viognier last month, our largest bottling ever at just under 400 cases, and are waiting for labels to be printed so we can release the wine.

Be looking for information about release events soon! Now our attention is turning to getting the rest of our 2012 red wines bottled, labeled, and released. Read More…

Curt in the Dirt

We had our first frost in November and the leaves in the vineyard have turned brown and are starting to drop. It has been a fairly mild fall so far but winter is around the corner.

In fact just this past weekend we received our first snow in the Chiricahua Mountains.
