Today with our first bins of Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay we kicked off Harvest 2014! This vineyard, located in the Carneros region of Napa Valley, benefits from cool, often foggy,Â mornings and evenings, and sunny days.Â Winemaker Darice Spinelli says they are picking the west-facing hillsides first, which get the full benefit of the afternoon sun, and crews will continue to harvest over a period of several days (perhaps weeks) as different areas of the vineyard ripen fully.
As with each start to harvest, the team at Nickel & Nickel gathered for a blessing from Father Charles (from the nearby Carmelite monastery) and a toast. Join us in wishing for a safe, successful Harvest 2014!
