Cabernet and Petit Verdot Harvested!

The 2010 harvest is almost complete - and we now have all but one vineyard harvested. The past week has been a whirlwind of harvesting and sampling. The recent Petit Verdot crop looks exceptionally good this year. The grapes had nearly perfect ripening conditions and the fruit showed superb depth of flavor while maintaining the natural acidity that has become a signature of VELLUM wines.

We are waiting out some rain here - a tradition for us - as we prepare to harvest the last of our Cabernet vineyards in Coombsville, Napa Valley.
