We took some quick video of our second batch of Viognier this year as it came in and found its way to the press. After this process we barreled the juice down and it is currently fermenting in neutral French oak barrels.
We kicked off the 2014 harvest yesterday bringing in our first white grapes of the season. Gorgeous Viognier from the Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles. We whole cluster pressed the grapes and the juice will settle for a bit longer before going to barrel. This year we are using neutral French oak barrels for our fermentation.
Looks like we will continue next week with more incredible Viognier from Westside Paso right at the beginning of September. As the whole process moves forward we will keep you updated here, on Twitter, and Facebook.
