Yesterday we hosted our second annual Foursight Harvest Experience. Open only to wine club and list members, this year proved especially popular, and we had to limit attendance so we could all fit in the winery and cellar! The weather was perfect for a vineyard and winery tour and an al fresco lunch, and we thoroughly enjoyed showing everyone the other side of our operation -- where most of the work is done.
The day started with a glass of wine and quick welcome, then on to the vineyard. Bill Charles talked about the "glamorous life of a farmer," and we tasted our Sauvignon Blanc and Clone 05 Pinot Noir in the blocks where the grapes are grown. We then moved to the winery, where Winemaker Joe Webb led a discussion about winemaking and attendees were able to try their hand at punchdowns. We tasted the Semillon and Zero New Oak Pinot Noir and talked about how we produce these unique bottlings. Afterward, everyone gathered for lunch in the 100-year-old orchard and we celebrated another fantastic harvest.
All in all, a fantastic day! Here are a few photos of the event:
