Wine Fact Wednesday! It’s that time of year again. We watch as veraison takes place in the vineyard and our Pinot Noir grapes turn from firm and cloudy green to pliable and deep, dusty purple, while our Grüner Veltliner grapes become more pliable. What does that mean? During veraison, grapes stop focusing on cell division (growing in size) and begin concentrating on developing sugars (berry ripening). Acidity levels will eventually drop, and Brix levels will rise. Swipe left to see a sneak peek of Brix levels of Pinot Noir from our Pommard block through a refractometer. . . . #willamettevalley #oregonpinotnoir #chehalemmountains #pinotnoir #brix #veraison
Behold! Our wicked talented winemaker, Shannon Gustafson! Shannon has been with us since 2017, creating two new and awesome wines since then. Yes, we have her to thank for the beloved Barrel Fermented Rosé of Pinot Noir and the Barrel Fermented Logsdon Ridge Pinot Gris. A true veteran winemaker, Shannon has made wine on three continents, working with over twenty-five varietals! In the rare moments when she is not hauling barrels in the cellar, Shannon can be found hiking a switchback or glacier with her dog, Abby, or eating the spiciest of spicy foods. Check out her Instagram for photos of her recent trip to Canada 🇨🇦 Thank you Shannon for all you do, all 10,000 cases! #teammembertuesday #willamettevalley #willamettevalleywine #womeninwine
