The big reveal. The final label design has been selected and label production has begun. Things took much longer than anticipated but I am very pleased with the design. Look back in the photographs and you can see the inspiration for the various shades of grey represented in the mountains at the top of the label. So excited to see the actual labels when they're printed and then on the bottles.

Barrel tasting the 2017 vintage. All three varieties (Cab Sav, Pinot Noir & Chard) taste every bit as good as I could have hoped for. The quality of the fruit is clearly evident in these wines. Can't wait to get these three into bottle.

Barrel tasting my Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow! Couldn't be happier with the juice so far. These should be amazing!
