Vineyards 

We have our choice each year to select small lots of incredible grapes from several vineyards throughout the Napa Valley and the Sonoma Valley. 

I meet with the growers and walk the vines. As we walk, I talk about my vision, they talk about their practices, we get to know each other, we actually listen to each other in a meaningful fashion. We make a deal. 

I like to pick my grapes when the grower thinks the grapes are ripe, just ripe, not over ripe. I taste the fruit, I squeeze the individual grapes to see how the seeds look, how they separate from the pulp, do they separate freely?

When we agree the fruit is ripe I tell 'em to harvest. 

The vineyard, the grower and me. We do it together. Then I get to have my fun!
