We have had a few, very nice press pieces in the last few days. We are fortunate to be part of Ventura County and it's growing wine scene. Please check out these sites for some of the pieces:
The date has been set! We will be bottling our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this Wednesday. The mobile bottler will be coming in and working with us to get the one single barrel of Cabernet into the approximately 276 bottles. We are very happy with flavors and structure of the Cabernet. This vintage should really be a crowd pleaser. To make this even more special, we have put together some really nice packaging for this vintage. Besides for great wine, we have ordered a larger, more robust bottle, special corks that are longer and include the vintage and AVA designate, and a modified label that has embossing and a spot varnish. You may also catch that we have increased the size of our Alma Sol logo on the front label. So, keep you eye out for more information on the actual bottling and the release information.
Bottling was a success! We bottled the 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this past week. Although it is very tight and far too young to drink, we think we have a winner here. Please visit our BLOG PAGE to see a full posting and video of the bottling process.
We are proud to announce that Alma Sol is now a member of the Ventura County Wine Trail. The VCWT has 21 winery members, located between Ojai and Malibu. The VCWT offers tasting events through year and has two annual events of its own. We look forward to pouring at some of these events in the future and sharing with you more about the wine trail. Please visit their website for more information on our local area wineries, hotels, restaurants, and more.
It's official, we can finally say that the 2012 Alma Sol harvest has begun. Oddly enough, we can also say that it is about to end seeing as the weather is turning quickly and winter will be here by the end of the week. We will be sharing more about the harvest with you in the coming days but we wanted to give you a quick update. Please check out our Facebook, YouTube, Google+, Picassa, and official website for videos, photos, updates, and more.
