Vineyard Notes
The Vellutini Ranch is bordered on the east by Jackass Hill and on the south by Jackass Vineyard, and was planted with bud wood from both of these vineyards. This seven-acre vineyard was planted in 1999 and is planted to both Zinfandel and Syrah grapes.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 season was much calmer than 2017, due to the absence of extra rain and heat spikes we experiences in 2017. The moderate temperature in the spring and summer allowed for a longer growing season and full flavor development. There was plenty of water in the soil to carry the clusters through the long growing season with minimal dehydration. Our first day of harvest in 2018 was September 10th, compared with an August 26th start in 2017. It was nice that the production crew could enjoy the Labor Day holiday right before the long hours and hard work of harvest began.
