the 2013 vintage

2013 marked the warmest summer on record for the Walla Walla Valley. Spring was cool and moist, with bud break occurring in mid-April. Once it started started warming up, it didn’t stop - temps rose over 100-degrees quite often! The first week of September brought relief: cooler days and nights which allowed for the development of our trademark Walla Walla Valley acidity.Harvest began around this same time, finishing right on schedule at the end of October.
