Crush Craziness

We are in the midst of the annual crush craziness, which can make for a varied tasting room schedule.  The grapes call – we have to answer!

The tasting room will be closed on Friday Oct 1 so that we can attend the awards ceremony for the WA State Fair Wine, Beer and Specialty Beverage Competition. We will be open for tasting our regular hours on Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 6.  I always adjust our hours on Google if we’re not going to be open our standard times. That is the best way to check that we’re open before coming by at this time of year. You can also just call or text us to check on times – and what we have going on for crush/press. 

Michael is going to pick up our cab franc grapes on Saturday 10/2, so we’ll be crushing them that afternoon starting likely around 3 or 4.  People are welcome to come by and watch the process and help sling grapes into the crusher if you want. 

The pinot gris, sauvignon blanc, and viognier have all finished fermentation. The roussanne is almost done and ready to be racked off the lees. 

We will be pressing the merlot either Thursday evening or Friday mid-day.  Press is another fun thing to watch and help out with as you can taste the brand new wine!  In the next week we’ll also have the cab sauvignon and tempranillo to press. 

After this weekend Michael will have one final trip over (we hope) to pick up the rose’ juice and petit verdot grapes. 

We’d love to have you come by and join in the crazy fun!
