Here it is—early October and almost all of the grapes are in. So far, we have crushed and pressed Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot and Cabernet as well as Santa Clara Valley Syrah and Zinfandel. The Carneros Merlot is due later this week so we are looking forward to the weekend crush. Villa del Monte winemakers John and Neil are pleased with this year’s harvest. The late summer heat ripened the grapes to perfection!
To those of you who visited us in September and October, thanks for stopping by. We will be open next on November 17 and 18 for our Villa del Monte Wine Club pick up weekend. You can check our events calendar to see where we will be between now and then.
