Bloom and set have since come and gone and 2017 is looking healthy and bountiful-we are racing towards veraison and then into harvest as we move into the lag phase of our season. Time to catch a moment before our vintage arrives in full force!
Bud break arrives to the Willamette Valley in late April and early May-welcome to the world vintage 2017!
Although Spring is upon us the vines are still waking up and it is looking like we are returning to ‘normal’ bud break schedules for vintage 2017!
On August 31 harvest 2016 began at dawn at Cooper Mountain! By the end of September the pick had concluded and the early wines have made their way to barrel where they will rest until next year. An early vintage already displaying bright red fruit, mineral and spice.
