I learned today that bottling often doesn't go according to plan. The labels, while printed perfectly to spec, revealed a layout issue that I didn't identify until I saw them in person. I decided to have them reprinted and bottle the wine in shiners. My parents taught me that if it's worth doing... It's worth doing right.​

The Stressed Vines Pinot Noir from a single Vineyard in the Annapolis Hills is tasting spectacularly from the barrel. So excited to bottle this wine in two weeks.​

Walking the block of Howell Mountain Cabernet Vines that will become my 2018 vintage. It has been my dream to make a Howell Mountain Cab ever since I first tasted one made by #seancapiaux when I visited O'Shaughnessy 5 years ago.​

This is what things looked like while walking the block of Howell Mountain Cabernet that will become my 2018 vintage.​

Chardonnay was being racked in preparation for bottling in two weeks. Tasted some and I couldn't be happier with the result. Once it goes through the cross-flow filtering process and is bottled... this wine will have exceeded my initial expectations.​
