Springtime in Stone Well
With Vintage 2018 fast approaching there is a lot of activity in the vineyard and the winery. The vineyard is full of growth with good recent rains, and the first signs of summer with some nice warm to hot days in the past week. In the winery, we have purchased another egg to keep 'Roger' company. They make a nice pair.
A few of you have asked about the Stone Well vineyard. the picture below covers most of the 15 acres, in the top left just above the poplars is the old Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, bottom left Mataro, and middle next to the cellar door more old shiraz. Most of the old sections were planted around 1950.
