IN THE VINEYARDS
We are finishing up the last of our tying as the buds are starting to push. We will soon have a better idea of how well we made it through the winter. The start of the growing season really kicks it into high gear in the vineyards. Bud break has started, and each day the shoots will get a little bit longer. In addition to managing that growth and making shoot and fruit adjustments, we will be putting in replacement vines to fill in the spots where vines are underproductive or have died as well as planting a whole new Syrah vineyard. This is by far the busiest time of the year for the Vineyard Crew. It is also a very exciting and hopeful time as we start to get a little bit of a feeling for what the vintage might hold for us!

FROM THE CELLAR

We continue to keep churning out new wines from the 2021 vintage and this month features the Pinot Gris and Gruner Vetliner. The Pinot Gris was tank-fermented and aged on its lees with regular stirrings to increase mouthfeel and body. The Gruner was partially fermented on the skins to add texture and weight and then blended with the tank fermented portion. After blending, the Gruner was barrel-aged for five months in neutral French oak to help to soften and round out the wine. The Gruner is still relatively new for us, and we’re looking forward to tasting it out of the bottle. 

CLUB HOUSE
Behind the Label Virtual Tasting

Our winemakers will be hosting a "Behind the Label" virtual tasting exclusively for club members on Thursday, June 16, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. ET. and hope you can be there. They will discuss this quarter--winemaker’s selections include our Dry Riesling 2021, Stone Bridge White 2021, and Rosé of Pinot Noir 2021--along with any other Atwater wine you might have on hand. We'll cover vintage, the winemaking process, wine characteristics, and leave ample time for you to ask questions. There is no charge but we ask you to preregister. We look forward to "seeing" you!
