A Message from Brian Mathy

Yesterday we harvested the first lot of Vellum Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 tons from Napa's Chiles Valley. After transporting the grapes to the winery, the grapes were destemmed and pumped into large stainless steel tanks. The fermentation in the tanks is only the first phase of winemaking, an 18 month exercise in patience and restraint.

We've put a great deal of effort into assuring ultra-premium quality by choosing the finest grapes and careful methodology.

I look forward to the day friends and family are able to enjoy the Vellum 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, our first vintage, and I'll reflect on the harvest with fond memories.

- Brian
