The proverbial doors to normal life are swinging open in California this week, and we are here for it. Get ready to raise your glass in celebration. The grapes are coming along beautifully, though quickly. We are expecting an early harvest, which seems extraordinary, but really is in keeping with the past ten vintages. Our average start date is August 15. Our family is so proud at the recent reviews we have received. Our 2012 Brut Rose LD has been awarded a 95-point rating in Wine Enthusiast and 94 points in Wine & Spirits, which will appear in their August issues. We are so looking forward to welcoming you here this summer. We are seeing a surge of visitors. Pro tip: make reservations. We and most of our neighbors are by appointment. Cheers to the joys of re-opening!
