A Harvest Glimpse

harvest-1We took a quick moment to capture this photo to show you a quick glimpse into our lives during the harvest season.  Jeff, Mac and I are looking over the completion of our 1st reserve Syrah block.  Jeff, my son, coordinates the truck, picking and handles payroll.  Mac coordinates samples and lab work.  I spend my days overseeing quality and truck loads.  Our team is greatly valued!

Hot, hot weather

Albarino DSCF1992


CCW Albarino 06: Rather than remove all the leaves, only the laterals are removed on the Albarino. This gives some early morning sun exposure but still offers a little more protection from the sun on this extremely hot year.

Vineyard Operations

Mac DSCF2082


Mac picking Syrah and weighing clusters for lag weights. The information collected from lag weights helps us to predict our crop load. From this we can determine if we need to remove more grapes from the vine. Quality is a direct correlation with crop size, a smaller crop usually means the potential for higher quality wines. Higher quality wines start with more expensive grapes because of the location, a lower tonnage, extra hand labor and the necessity of getting all operations completed in a timely fashion.

A special appreciation dinner and event was given for those who work and help make Coyote Canyon Winery a success. This included a tour of Columbia Crest by Vanesa Blaisdel –showing where and how grapes were received, tour of tank rooms, barrel rooms, bottling lines, and ended with a tasting of Columbia Crest wines made with Coyote Canyon Vineyard grapes.

A special meal was created by Martha Andrews and Carolyn Knee featuring fresh Alaska silver salmon that Mike caught on his Alaska fishing adventure. A 3 liter bottle of 2009 H3 Columbia Crest wine was enjoyed with the meal along with other Coyote Canyon Winery wines.

Again, thank you for helping to make Coyote Canyon Winery a success story!!!
