Crown Point: Wine Blending

It is evident right away once you have discovered the ideal blend. After numerous blending trials, one blend among many shines brighter. I always say the best blends usually find you – the superior blend is the one that is obvious and is unanimously enjoyed by all. Until you discover it, you must keep tasting different combinations.

Farming with Microbes

In April 2020, Crown Point Vineyards brewed its first batch of compost tea. In short, compost tea is an organic product that enhances the soil’s microorganisms to promote soil health, improve root systems, and provide a catalyst for efficient uptake of the soil elements by the root. Over the long term, the brewed tea cleans the soil, promotes soil health, reinforces plant architecture, improves yields, and ultimately enhances the quality of the grapes.

Veraison

Once veraison begins, we can count the remaining days until we pick the fruit – we know the Cabernet Sauvignon is roughly 55 days out, and the Sauvignon Blanc is 35 days out. It is uncanny how punctual mother nature can be.
