Well today was Pet Nat day!  We hand bottled and capped 40 cases of ViognierPet Nat, or as they say in France Pétillant Naturel. A very old method of producing sparkling wine. You bottle the wine while fermentation is still going on, allowing CO2 to build up in the bottle, creating a light refreshing sparkling wine. We shall see how this tasty wine turns out for @vascourbanowines soon! #wine #petillantnaturel #petnat #winery  #winemaking #viognier #sparklingwine #winegeeks #handbottled #winelife #winetime #somethingnew #comingsoon #vascourbanowines #pitchers #funnels #crowncaps #fermenting #funstuff #fingerscrossed #cheers

Pressing and barreling down today @nottingham_cellars @vascourbanowines. Bleeding of free run juice, and using must pump to pump the Cabernet tank into the press. Also putting our Cortez vineyard Grenache into puncheons to help maintain some of the bright fruit elements. #winery #winerylife #wine #cabernetsauvignon #grenache #pressing #barrelingdown #puncheons #nottinghamcellars #vascourbanowines #winemaking #winelife #winelover #cellarrat #winegeek #livermore #cheers

After a busy day of moving juice, barreling down Tondre Grapefield Riesling and Pinot,and pressing Lichen Estate Pinot for @typicite_wines. Also pressing Pinot and calling off fruit picks for @nottingham_cellars because of a crazy humid late afternoon and evening drenching. This 2015 Ulrich Langguth Estate Spätlese Riesling is perfectly refreshing. #riesling #ulrichlangguth #mosel #spätlese #germanwine #refreshing #racy #winerylife #pressing #pinotnoir #winegeek #winetime #winelover #harvest2018 #anotherday #cheers

So we pressed the Tondre Grapefield Pinot Noir for @typicite_wines yesterday. So unbelievably thrilled with the quality of the fruit this year, from the Riesling to the Pinots. Punch downs continue on the Lichen Estate, and the Riesling is almost dry.

A couple great wines shared with a good friend @skippyjo2, thanks for the invite Cindy, awesome time. @phillipshillwinery 2017 Green Ranch Riesling. Love all of Toby’s wines, but this is definitely one of my favorites laser focused acidity. And @threestickswines 2015 The James Pinot Noir from Sta Rita Hills, a bold rich wine. And thanks to @rangelife_livermore for the wonderful and hospitality...as always. #wine #riesling #andersonvalley #acidity #phillipshillwinery #pinotnoir #staritahills #threestickswines #winelovers #winetime #winelife #goodfriends #rangelifelivermore #greatfood #cheers
