Comments about 2017 Grape Availability:  Demand has been brisk among our existing commercial clients, leaving only the limited tonnages shown for sale.  We do anticipate additional primitivo availability–potentially 2 tons or more–and additional barbera is also likely but the wait list already includes a 2-ton order.  The Quinta is committed in its entirety and so there will be no opportunity for surplus there.  The varietal tempranillo is also spoken for.

The bottom line is that if you are interested in our grapes beyond the limited current postings, we encourage you to contact us and get on a waiting list, as it’s likely we’ll be able to commit additional fruit of certain varietals once we see fruit set and can better estimate yield.
