Story

Typical Santa Barbara season outside of an early bloom and fruit set. The lingering drought eased in most of the state but Santa Barbara still remained dry. September typically being our warmest month, our grapes were not affected by late season heat due to the crop load and early harvest date. Total degree days just over 2100. Rainfall total 21.28” (138%- of historical average).
