Yates Family Vineyard is owned by Michael and Lynn Yates, with the winery and vineyard staffed by their two daughters, Whitney and Mary. Mary is running the administrating end of the business, Whitney is hands on in the winery and vineyard operations. Mary and Whitney are also actively promoting the wines in all of our markets. The Yates family has owned the property for more than 60 years.
And so it begins...September 10th was our official first day of Harvest for 2014, ten days earlier than last year. We picked three tons of our Viognier and it is just beginning a cold fermentation in the tank. Mike and Whitney have been busy tasting grapes throughout the vineyard and we have a lot of high 24 and low 25 brix (sugar levels)...so the craziness is upon us...
