Wishing you a very happy spring from Fort Ross Vineyard! We love to see our vineyard & garden in full bloom, and it's been wonderful to see many of you come by to enjoy it with us. Budbreak officially began on February 18th - an early year for us due to a warm & dry spell. We were on frost watch a few days after, but fortunately the temperatures never dipped below freezing and our young shoots have continued to flourish.
With spring on our mind, we are pleased to tell you more about our latest releases coming in your next club shipment. We have three lovely springtime wines, all from the 2019 vintage: Mother of Pearl Chardonnay, Bicentennial Pinot Noir, and Top of Land Pinot Noir. Be sure to check out our spring recipe guide as well.
