In The Tennessean’s recent article about “The (Secret) World of Chenin Blanc,” our CB+V was recommended as one “to toast the season as the sun starts to shine…”
2013 Spring Vineyard Operations
The three most important vineyard operations in the annual lifecycle of the vines are pruning, shoot thinning (suckering), and of course, harvest.
Shoot thinning (suckering) is what our vineyard team is doing right now. It consists of removing the unwanted shoots by hand, so the vine concentrates its energy in less shoots, and less clusters of grapes. This step allows for more light inside the canopy, and more air flowing around the fruit.
Shoot thinning is very important for grapes quality, and quantity.
Enjoy your summer with any of our wines!

Chenin Blanc + Viognier “Best of Class”

The Delectable 2012 Chenin Blanc + Viognier is Released!
The latest vintage of our extraordinary Chenin Blanc + Viognier blend enchants the nose with a refreshing bouquet of succulent fruit and delicate florals, opening with juicy honeydew melon, sweet white peach, and ripe green plum touched with hints of spiced white tea and soft apple blossom. The vivacious palate leads with crisp yellow grapefruit, fresh-cut pineapple and sumptuous honeyed pear notes. Lush and lively fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish.
