31 Monday

These pictures are from August 2012, at a vineyard in Santa Barbara county.

Chardonnay fermenting in barrels.
Beautiful, sweet, chardonnay grapes.

The Crush party, as viewed by the production crew.

Men of the cellar.

Merlot grapes, beginning to ferment.

Punch-downs, done two to three times per day, help to extract flavors from the grape skins.

One of the many faces of the cellar floor.

pH indicator fun!

It's hard to complain about a 45 minute commute when it's full of this...

Pinot noir grapes.
Oak barrels awaiting wine.
Morningtime in the vineyard.
First blends.
Freshly pressed Chardonnay.
