2009 Harvest Report!

For those of you who may be interested (for example, those of you considering joining the Monte Bello Collector Program with the 2009 vintage!), the 2009 Harvest Report is now available for your reading pleasure!

It was certainly quite a growing season. Beginning with the transition from a very long and cold winter,

to a cool spring,

and moving through a fairly mild summer,

into a harvest  especially notable for the debut of a new grape sorting system at Monte Bello,

it’s been a thoroughly riveting cycle, and now that we’ve made it through, I’m very happy to say it looks like all signs are pointing to 2009 being a great vintage!

  1. Great info as always. Love the photo of the vines in the snow.
    Looking forward to the first assemblage tasting in a few weeks.
