Our Mount Veeder vines speak a language all their own. Becoming fluent in that language, fully understanding all its subtleties and nuances is the trick to making great wine from mountain vineyards. Over the years, we have come to know the mountain’s contours, dips, and ridges and the sequence of ripening that is the key to it all. A Mount Veeder harvest is a Zen-like art of moving across a three-dimensional chessboard. Take the uphill side of the vine only, or the downhill side, or just the north, south, east, or west section. We pick only what is ready with peak flavor and ripeness. It’s a complex endeavor, carving with precision — matching areas of the vineyard at the same level of ripeness and leaving others to mature another week or more.
