Kick off to Harvest | 2021
🍾We are so excited to be celebrating the start of the 2021 harvest! 🍾
It’s been a year of ups and downs but we are thrilled to kick off another harvest season here in the Russian River Valley. We started by welcoming 9.8 tons of Pinot Noir from Starr Ridge Vineyard and 3.5 tons of Chardonnay from Ritchie Vineyard to the winery!
As is our tradition, we kicked off festivities with a Champagne toast and some words of inspiration from Director of Winemaking Theresa Heredia and Associate Winemaker Brent McKoy.
It’s bittersweet this year, as it’s our first harvest in 14 years without former enologist Mark Osborne, who we lost too soon earlier this year. We dedicate this year to Mark, his memory will be with us all season long.
