The Wallis Estate fruit is located 600 feet up Diamond Mountain provding a challenging environment for the grapes to grow. This allows the grapes to mature in their own unique way. Here are some pictures to show what kind of terrain the vines have to work with
The grapes are flourising this year as it has been dry and warm allowing the fruit to soak up as much sun as it can before the rains.
Good luck with this coming Harvest!
The 2012 Family Winemakers of California tasting was great fun. On a beautiful cloudless sunny day on the warf of San Fransisco the Fort Mason center hosted over 250 wines.
There was a lot of trade and many consumers who came by the table on Sunday, to say hello, and I know more trade will be coming by to try the ever favored Wallis Cabernet Sauvignon later this afternoon.
Thanks to all the familiar faces that came by to say hello yesterday! It was great to see you again.
