Today we helped the our friends and partners in wine, the Ramazzotti's harvest 40 tons of Merlot from the Frei Ranch, just 2 minutes from beautiful downtown Geyserville. The weather was perfect; cool and misty!
HARVEST IS HERE!
What a great way to get our 2014 harvest started! Danny and I worked with Joe Ramazzotti and his crew (including his son Travis who came up from San Diego to help out) at the Heller Estate. This is where we get most of our Alexander Valley Chardonnay. Brad was up near Dry Creek bringing in a small lot of Zin at Serendipity Vineyards.
There are a few pics at the bottom of the crushed fruit starting the journey that ends with wine! More to come!
