December, 2015

LDV Winery

Never thought we would get here so fast but the wine we produced this fall will translate into about 3,000 cases of wine. We thought we might get to this point at buildout but not with only 2/3 of our vineyard planted. Pretty amazing.

Due to the amount of fruit and the prolonged harvest, we are behind in bottling the next wines to hit the market. We still anticipate the 2013 barrel fermented and aged Viognier coming out soon as well as the 2012 Petite Sirah dessert wine. We are almost sold out of our award winning 2012 Syrah so we need to bottle the 2013 as soon as possible. We barrel sampled some 2013 Grenache at the Harvest Festival and those of you that had a chance to try it know what special juice is coming your way, probably late spring 2016.

Hard to believe we have over 15,000 gallons of wine in tanks and barrels in the barrel room. Logistics have become a new challenge but so far, the design of our building and operation are holding up well. Growth continues to bring on more challenges. Come down to the Wine Gallery and take some wine home, I need the space!
