The lovely Marlene Carter pouring our 98 point Cabernet Souvignon on June 7th at the San Diego Wine and Roses Event! Held at the stunning 5 star Grand Del Mar, this is always a wonderful event for Camp Good Days, a charity which we love.




 Welcome to Summer!


We are experiencing interesting weather patterns this year, from rain and cool,

coastal days to heat into the ‘90s. As they say…

”if you don’t like the weather in California…just wait a few minutes!"


The most important thing you want to see in the vineyard is your shadow.”

-Stephen Krebs, Napa Valley Jr. College Viticulture Program

 At 2,200 feet elevation, in the Red Hills AVA, we just broke into 100-degree days!  We are casting our shadow this week doing “canopy management.”  This is the time of the year when we see rapid shoot and canopy growth. In order to provide proper shading, sun and wind flow, we stuff the canopy into the fruiting wires.



We want you to be the first to know that

the 2011 Petite Sirah is bottled and it is stunning!

Our first vintage and only 40 cases produced.
