Pinot Noir 2015

August 27th, 2015

Our Pinot Noir came in on Tuesday at 24.5 brix. Its a heavy bin at 1,215 lbs. We sorted a bit of fruit to keep the most quality for our fermentation.
Here is the Pinot Noir after its been sorted. You can’t see, but there is a layer of whole cluster at the bottom of the bin. That way there will be some stem left for pepper and tannins.
The fruit travels down a conveyer belt that we call a sorting table. There is a bin in the center that removes the grapes from the stems. The grapes continue down the line to be sorted through and saved for fermentation while the stems are dropped down into this bin. We also discard the unwanted fruit into this bin leaving only the choicest quality fruit to be turned to wine.

Pinot & Paella a success!

A big thank you to all of the participating wineries who poured with us at Pinot & Paella to support Paso Robles Youth Art Foundation! It was a cooker. We felt heat well into the upper 90′s. Be sure to get your tickets early next year as tickets were sold out.
