The first few weeks of August were a time of in-betweens at Ram’s Gate Winery. Here’s a peek at the goings-on leading up to the first pick of the year:

Between the Vines…

We had the privilege of hosting Members’ Suppers in the Vineyard at Sangiacomo Vineyard and Bush Crispo Vineyard, hearing from these two families of inspiring growers and dining alongside the vines as grapes ripened practically before our eyes.

Our winemaking team brought the 2015 vintage to a close for the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, all bottled last week save for the 2015 El Diablo Vineyard Chardonnay, which will spend some additional time in oak barrels.

Between Seasons… 

And finally, the grapes themselves have been busy in the final weeks of ripening on the vine as we draw closer each day to the 2016 Harvest.
