Production Notes

Every vintage tells a story and Napa Valley’s 2017 is no exception. From abundant winter rains to cool spring weather, warm summer temperatures and October’s wildfires, this vintage may be more memorable than most. Plentiful winter rains helped refresh our groundwater and the vines and led to a cool, mild spring. An unusual hailstorm in early June had little effect on the overall crop. Due in part to these warmer temperatures, 90% of Napa Valley’s grape tonnage was harvested before the wine country wildfires started on October 8. Although the fires were a terrible human tragedy, taking lives and destroying property, the Napa Valley wine industry, its wineries and its vineyards were largely spared.
