Harvest Ends at :Nota Bene

This photo of our 2018 Heart of the Hill Vineyard Mourvèdre is memorable as our last fermentation of the year. All wine is now in barrel or tank and it's time to raise a glass to the 2018 vintage! 
The heat units for the year are the most revealing indicator we have this soon into the vintage. 2018 was warmer than normal, but not as warm as 2015. It seems like it cooled off in October, but we'll look forward to seeing the data. All of our wines looked and smelled great in the fermenters. Let's see what they taste like next summer. Time in barrel tells you so much more. See WSU for more info.

Roger and Paul pressing Heart of the Hill Mourvèdre, the last of our vintage, on 11/1/18.

Food and Wine Tour of the Holy Land
Let's explore the food and wine of the Holy Land!
If you have never explored this ancient land, now is the time to join us in this adventure. :Nota Bene is all about fine wines and so will be much of our focus on this trip. Let's see what the Holy Land has to offer at each meal. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Wines have been enjoyed in the Holy Land for thousands of years. I'm sure you've heard the stories. Now let's let Dr. Timothy Mullner guide us thru the culture and history of each stop. Timothy will be joining us at our Harvest Party to answer questions about the trip. Come and say hello and talk travel! Trip dates are May 14-24, 2019. See more.
