Harvest News: Wrapping Things Up!

"All estate fruit is in," Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse tells us and there's just a bit of weekend picking left to do before the 2012 harvest season will be complete. 

Wine country is buzzing with what exceptional quality we're seeing in the fruit this year and we're anticipating that some truly outstanding wines will come of it. (Melissa, for instance, was recently heard using the word "spectacular" to refer to our 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.) 

Come to think of it, now would be a great time to join Club J our wine club so you're sure to be first in line for the special 2012 releases down the road.

You'd think the conclusion of harvest would mean a brief respite for Team J, but our days are actually getting busier as the holiday season approaches. It’s that time of year when people are making sure there’s plenty of wine on hand for end-of-year festivities and of course it's an especially popular time of year for sparkling wine.

It puts us in a festive mood  to be able to help with these holiday preparations. If you'd like some advice about which varietal or sparkling wines would go well with your holiday dinners this year, just get in touch. We'd love to hear what you have planned for the season.
