It is harvest-time for Casa Nuestra’s organic vineyards! 

Check out these photos of what we’ve done so far:

Picking Chenin Blanc

Grapes just in:

2009 Merlot and 2009 Cabernet Franc – both grown organically on our St. Helena Estate. 

Picked earlier this month:

2009 Riesling, Old Vines- this is the vineyard planted in 1966 on the east side of the Silverado Trail
2009 Chenin Blanc, Old Vines – this vineyard is located on the southside of our dirveway and was planted in 1961
2009 Rosado, our dry rose’ being made from our Cabernet Franc grapes located on the north side of the driveway and next to the Trail

We expect to pick the field-blend vineyards (Tinto Classico and Tinto St. Helena) next week.  We’ll let you know!

 

Woo Hoo!
