Update on China

 China is now supporting the legitimacy of Napa Valley as a wine culture, which means that Napa Valley is truly a big player in the this new generation. Many wineries who export their wines to China can feel safer now that their wines and their names are being protected by the government of China.

The article I read this from was gathered from Napa Valley Vintners recent news release:

A walk through the vineyards

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!

Family Winemakers of Californa 2012

 

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.

TEDX sponsor

So I don't know if you have heard but Wallis Estate was one of a few sponsors at the distinguished TED-X talk at Sonoma County encouraging "A Sense of Place". The speakers were fantastic and for those lucky to have heard about it were able to discuss some of the inspiring ideas talked about after the presentations with a sensation glass of Wallis Estate.

If you didn't make it but care to hear the speakers click on this link: TED-X Sonoma County "Inspiring a Sense of Place". There are also numerous other inspiring videos ranging from every topic imaginable.

Hope you are enjoying these beautiful Summer days

What's going on in China

If anyone is curious about the growing interest and consumption of luxury products (specifically about wine) in China this article does a great job to explain who imports wine there and how that is effecting exports from the US.

Bottling 2010!

On June 18th 2012 Wallis Estate 2010 wines were bottled at Black Sears in Angwin California. Thankfully we weren't dieing of heat as we had some nice winds and a cooler climate for this day in summer. The bottling went very smoothly and everyone was very helpful. We are very thanksful for the Black Sears crew and all they do. Jamee Wallis showed up for a good portion of the day watching as over 12,490 bottles were put onto the bottling truck and filled with the rare diamond mountain fruit to be corked and foiled and sealed up in boxes and sent to the warehouse awaiting their release. Marilyn and Edward Wallis also showed up to participate in the bottling process on this lovely summers day.

Please see pictures attatched as these were taken as the 2010 wine was bottled

Local Press

On January 26th the St. Helena Star used the Wallis Estate, Little Sister as the pick of the week. We are proud of the review and very excited to be the pick of the week.

"This is one of those wines that tastes more expensive than it is, even at its $45 price tag. It has juicy red fruits with balanced spice and oak flavors, and the acidity adds a nice lift. The wine is made in a rich, full-bodied style and would be great to pull out a dinner party, especially if you are serving roast beef, steaks or a rich stew (St. Helena Star, C. Seda)."
