It’s madness down here in San Diego! There was opening day at Del Mar, and then Comic-Con shenanigans, but I’m pretty sure all the excitement was for our sold out winemaker dinner last night with our friends at Nine-Ten Restaurant in La Jolla! (@ninetenlajolla)The dishes were fantastic and the wine pairings just took them over the top! Thank you to Chef Jason Knibb and to sommelier Chris Russo for doing the pairings! Always happy to represent @sonomacounty and @sonomacountyvintners! #ninetenlajolla

Link to order in bio. Our third vintage produced from #holdervineyard, asmall, family operated, 1.25 acre site. This is an exciting follow-up to the two previous vintages. Aromas of ripe blackberry and wild strawberries mingle with notes of lavender, reductive tar and cardamom. Ripe fruit flavors and silky soft tannins are brought together with captivating acidity on the persistent finish. Decanting is recommended for drinking now, but this wine should be enjoyable over the next 10 years or more. Praise for the 2014: 93 Points - Wine Enthusiast "One of my favorite in the lineup, the 2014 Pinot Noir Holder offers a rich, medium to full-bodied style as well as notes of black raspberries, black cherries, spice, dried herbs, and flowers. Like everything here, it's not incredibly long or profound, yet is balanced, classic, and impeccably made." - Jeb Dunnuck Thanks, Andrew, Peter, Tracy and Brett
Evan topping the chenin. And no, he’s not in his #boxershorts. #hellachenin #cheninblanc #harvest2018
Last night of #harvest2018 is on! Just a little more #chardonnay and we’ll shut the door and take a nap in the winery for about 4 days. It’s been a great year for the vineyards. We expect big things from the 2018 vintage.
Hope your weekend involved some great #pinotnoir. Ours certainly did.
This little guy hitched a ride down #sonomamountain in our #pinotnoir last night. He was found this morning trying to be the first to taste the 2018 #vingris. He’s been safely relocated to an area where Lu the dog won’t eat him. #harvest2018 #sonomacounty #winemaking #whywesort
Hey #napavalley - let’s all meet up for some wine in about 2 hours. Cool? #napa #aubergedusoleil @aubergedusoleil
Yes - we haven’t had much sleep. #harvest2018 continues with our #pinotnoir that we brought in this morning.
Andrew out in #holdervineyard this morning bringing in delicious #pinotnoir grapes. These will be our vineyard designate Holder Vineyard release. Behold the Pinot, for the #2018vintage starts now! #harvest2018 #2018harvest! More picking going on tonight!
Geeky wine alert! Andrew picked these yesterday to test. Top to bottom, clones of #chardonnay. Clone 17 or Robert Young, clone 28 or Mt Eden, suitcase selection of #Montrachet. That bottom cluster is one cluster! #2018harvest #harvest2018 #sonomacounty #sonomawine

Andrew is practicing selfies up at @vanderkampvineyard today. Oh, and checking grapes. He’s good at checking grapes. His selfies, well, you be the judge... #selfie #harvest2018 #sonomaharvest #2018harvest #vanderkamp
The time has come! Tomorrow morning, as the sun comes up, Andrew and Tracy and the team will be knee deep in #cheninblanc! #harvest2018 officially kicks off with a cup of hot coffee and a lot of hard work bringing in the grapes. It’s been an amazing year for farming fruit. Let’s let Andrew and Tracy take it from here. #hellachenin #chenincheninchenin #harvest #letsmakesomewine
