Getting ready for harvest

If you are reading this blog on our website, you are seeing the new look and feel. We lauched the site on Wednesday evening – it is still not complete but we are getting there. Hopefully, we will get it done over the weekend.

The new look is too match our new label. After 4 (or 5 if you count the rose or 6 if you count the unreleased 2003 wines) harvests with our first label, we decided it was time to change the look. We love our original label but felt we need to the label to match our wines a bit better – refined, elegant and balanced.

The old label will live on for experimental and on the edge wines. in 2010, look for a small release of Isabel’s Crazy… with the old label.

On top of our new label, we are getting ready for harvest. We have two delightful new interns starting at the winery for harvest – Justin and Lisa. Justin has already started – picking up our new 1 year old barrels. In the lab, we will have Anna starting to help on weekends as well. Hopefully they will all occasionally post on the blog.

Danielle is leaving us for harvest in Charnay with Eric Texier. We will miss her around the winery and the help her ultimate team provided last year. Of course, having worked harvest with Eric, we are sure she will have a wonderful time and learn an incredible amount.
