Post Harvest Update
Hello again and welcome to the latest update from Ledge Vineyards. All of our delicious 2020 wines are safe and sound in barrel and we've turned our focus yet again to the vineyard.
Prior to the recent rains, we broadcast green organic compost throughout the vineyard. One of the most important aspects of farming is to give back to the soil every year to maintain a healthy level of nutrients. We will follup this up with a nitrogen fixing cover crop to build up the richness of the soil.
We are also in the process of ordering new vines to flesh out our vision for future blending, incuding new strongholds of Mourvedre, Cinsaut, Counoise, Roussanne, Clairette and Grenache Blanc. We will also be reinforcing our blocks of Syrah and Grenache which are the backbone of our vineyard. Ultimately, as we have mentioned before, we will have two estate blends from the Adams Ranch. One will be a white wine composed of Roussanne, Clairette and Grenache Blanc, and a red wine composed of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsaut, Counoise and Roussanne. Exciting!
We have openend up the wine shop to the general public, and while several wines are sold out, there are a few rare finds in there. Feel free to reach out for specific and potentially unlisted wines, as we have a few things that are extremely low inventory wise, but available. Don't be shy, reach out and say hi!
Until next time, take care of yourselves and thanks as always for stopping by.
