As I write this, I am filled with hope for the fresh new year ahead and gratitude for your support this past year. Your loyalty and patronage reached all of our hearts and we sincerely appreciate it. We are back to work with a little reprieve, preparing the first 2020 wines and 2019 single-vineyard Pinot Noirs for bottling and pruning our Estate vineyard. 2021 will mark the second year of full organic farming on our Estate. I cannot help but be excited for the vintages to come as I watch our Estate transform as we continue our thoughtful farming journey.
This release includes a great line-up of wines that I am thrilled to be sharing with you, including my first three 2018 Pinot Noirs, two compelling Chardonnays, and a revamped version of a fan-favorite red blend. As I have remarked previously, the 2018 vintage was idyllic - even growing season, bountiful crop, and delicious wines.
As winemakers and grape growers, being eternally optimistic is at the core of who we are. Looking forward to new growing seasons, new techniques, new barrel selections, and new challenges that will fuel us with hope and the necessary perseverance to evolve vintage after vintage. On behalf of the entire team at Ram's Gate, we hope you enjoy the wines of this release and thank you for your support. Cheers to 2021!
