2017 off to the races posted by Matthew Moye

I can't believe that it is already February! Where did January go? We have been busy putting the 2015 vintage blends together in the cellar and boy are we having fun. We are loving this vintage. My only wish was there was more. We are about half of what we normally produce each year due to the drought of 2015. The flip side is because of the light crop the flavors and concentrations were far more plentiful. All the wines will be ready for tasting at our barrel tasting later this month. It will be exciting to get your reactions. Standing order packets went out last month and many have confirmed their yearly allocations. Thank you! We still have some that have not confirmed, so don't delay and give us a call to grab those wines or make a few changes. We did add the incentive of a 15% discount on 3 or more mixed cases as well as 10% on a case or more. I can almost guarantee there will not be much left when we release the wines in September. We are also now opening up the Futures program to new customers. If you have not ordered from us before, this is how a vast majority of our wines are sold. Give us a call and we can give you more information on how to acquire Arroyo wines, before they are gone! As far as the vineyard work is concerned, we have started pruning our vines for the upcoming growing season. They are still dormant but I'm sure enjoying the plentiful rain Mother Nature has supplied us with this year. As I write this, it continues to pour in Calistoga. We hope everyone has had a great start to 2017 and look forward to hearing your Arroyo experiences with our wines as well as hopefully seeing many of you in Calistoga over the year!
