We’re so excited that harvest season is upon us! This past Monday we harvested our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc from Eds’ Vineyard. We ended up with 2.2 tons, 5x the amount from last year! We had so much wine we had to do some barrel fermentation or our tank was going to overflow! Exciting stuff we’ve got going on at the winery.
Our phenomenal team of winemakers and our awesome viticulture team really came together on this.
We started doing some testing of our red fruit for this year as well. We’ve gotten great sugar readings for where we are in the season. So we’ll likely pick those grapes towards the end of the month and into October.
Friday, I’m heading up to visit our sourcing vineyards. As you all know, I’m very hands-on in the winery. My goal is to make sure the wine continues to follow what inspired me to get into the wine industry and that our winemaking team continually helps to bring my ideas to life. So, I’ll be heading up the California Coast to visit our sourcing vineyards in Santa Barbara, Edna Valley and Paso Robles. I’ll make sure to post some pictures on our social media outlets so be sure to follow along.
Harvest season also means that we’re prepping for a new wine club shipment! If you haven’t joined our club, know that you’ll absolutely love being a member. We offer private tastings and tours for free on property as well as wine pairing tasting experiences. We also give between 15 and 20% off to those members on their allocations and on other wines purchased on our website. For more information on how to sign up for our club, click here!
We hope you are drinking some tasty AJA wines this week. And if you don’t have enough in the cellar, our delivery is quick, especially in California!
