Back in the (wine) saddle

It is surreal that just three days ago I was on my little bike riding into San Francisco after crossing this beautiful country,

Los Chamizol Zinfandel

and today I’m at Los Chamizol Vineyards in Sonoma while my Zinfandel is being picked.  Back to being a winemaker in Sonoma – my favorite life.

This blog will now focus on harvest and all the goings on at Annadel as we prepare to pick our grapes, make wine and then put the finished products to sleep in lovely French oak barrels.

The beauty of this life is the changing of the seasons and how our work and our life is so different depending on the time of year.  It’s been a very busy summer with weddings and selling wine and preparing for the Cannonball, and of course the running of the Cannonball.  AND FINISHING THE CANNONBALL.

Now we move into fall and harvest, the culmination of a years work.  This is going to be a spectacular vintage, epic actually.  Our fruit is gorgeous, the weather is perfect for fall and finishing the grapes and everything feels right.  More updates to come.
