Labels, capsules, bottles and corks…oh my! The winery has been pretty quiet this past month but I have been busy behind the scenes as I gear up for bottling. The Passaggio 2012 Unoaked Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Rosé are scheduled for bottling. Added to my Spring line up is the 2012 Passaggio’s UNMARKED Sauvignon Blanc…I am so excited! I’ve been diligently doing market research (hint. hint) and tasting through some very good Sauvignon Blancs. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it…LOL…and I am happy to declare I am very excited to get this wine on the market!!!
The Passaggio Sauv Blanc grapes are from Lake County. This photo shows the beginning of the process. My good friends from the Luna Sei wine-group sourced and picked these grapes…here they are helping sort. The 2012 UNMARKED Sauvignon Blanc will be a great addition to the spring / summer Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. We will be racking, fining, and cold stabilizing in the next couple of weeks. We will be bottling the middle of March. Wait til you see the label for the Sauv Blanc – you’re gonna love it…. 😉
Stay tuned for what’s next…
