Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer In

At Township 7, all of the SB and Gew is in with the Chardonnay beginning to come in. Picking in Cawston (Chardonnay) on Saturday while the Pinot Gris on our property is harvested simultaneously. It'll be a long day but we'll get it all done with our new Sutter 35.

Things are heating up at Stone Mountain as well.

Looks like Monday will be the day for the first day of Gewurztraminer there. Over 17 tons are expected. This new winery is going from about 30 tons produced off premise last year to 120 tons in a newly converted building this year. Photos here today show arrival of the new press and Terry hand-loading some primo Gew for whole cluster pressing.
