The smoke from the fires of this year is now gone. While the loss of some of the 2020 vintage grapes to possible smoke taint is keenly felt by us, the vineyard has moved on in its annual cycle.
Fall is here in full colorful glory and the air is clear, cool, and fresh. It is a perfect time to relax, overlooking the vineyard, and sample the new release wines.
It is also a good time to pick wines to enjoy during the upcoming holidays. One choice might be our newest gold metal winner, the Char Vale 2017 vintage Estate Pinot Noir, which was awarded gold by Sunset Magazine.
