On August 21st, 2017, we were treated to a very special solar eclipse, right in the middle of harvest. I remember well all the excitement leading up to that day, and how we stopped all the activity so that any employee who wanted to see the special phenomenon could come to the press pad to view it together. We were harvesting Pinot Noir that day, from both Oak Knoll and Carneros, and it made us think about how the moon covering the sun and turning it dark was the opposite of what we were trying to do with the fruit, making a white wine from red grapes. In honor of that special day, we made a Blanc de Noirs blend. Much of the blend is from vineyards harvested the day of the Eclipse itself. We hope you enjoy this special release while sharing your story of where you were that day.
