Post Harvest Wrap-Up
Harvest 2012 has officially ended for Alma Sol. All the wines are in and most of them are already barreled down and ready to make their long journey into fine wines. We have our last lot of fruit from Halter Ranch inching through fermentation still but expect that it will be done, pressed, and put to barrel in the next few weeks. Harvest went really well and the quality of the fruit, hence the 2012 wines, looks to be absolutely spectacular.
We are starting to think about post harvest now, including events, wine sales, and the holidays. We have just signed up to pour at the Ventura Winter Wine Festival and will be booking some additional pouring events locally in the coming weeks. Please watch our events page for updates and stay tuned for our newsletter which will provide a full update on harvest as well as a few specials.
A few of you may have been lucky enough to try some pre-releases of our 2010 wines recently. We think that the 2010 bottlings came out pretty amazing and look forward to them getting a little bit more bottle time before we bring them back out. In the meantime, our 2009 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is tasting pretty good. It finally has seen enough bottle aging to pull out and enjoy. We only have 20 cases of this very exciting wine left so don't wait too long - we might just drink it all before you get any!
