Sometimes the best gatherings are those at which you forget to take pictures because you are in such good company. In this case it was our company lunch at @ristorantedongiovanni today with Bill, Kevin, Miguel, Lavonne, Tina, Patrick and Elana. This year was challenging in new ways but again is ending with a small team who together laughs so much they literally always put us in the corner table 😂❤️. So, Instead of seeing a picture of us, here is a sneak peak at the 2014 Prime Solum Label. We can't wait for you to join us in the tasting room when we open our doors in a few months. #napavalley #brokenrockvineyard #twogenerations #happyholidays #cabernetsauvignon #atlaspeak #primesolum
We've never been so excited to see the cover-crop growing in. We will be seeding some areas of #brokenrockvineyard effected by the fire two months ago, but what you see here all came in on it's own... A great sign that the soil is still a thriving ecosystem. It is amazing to see how resilient not only the vines and other plants are on the property but the animals too. Our large families of quail, vultures and wild turkey are cruising around like they own the place, living in charcoal trees and former hedges of berry bushes. This is a reminder that with each new season growth of many kinds will continue and that makes us very very grateful. 📷@elanamelissa #napavalley #twogenerations #vineyard #northerncalifornia #billhill #winter #covercrop #magichour #atlaspeak #grateful #newgrowth #nature
Tina, Bill and Elana at the Napa Valley Vintner's Gratitude event last night that was held to thank first responders. #nvv #napavalley #thankyoufirstresponders #napagratfest
Want to see what "small production" looks like? Here is a picture from the end of the 2017 harvest as we were de-stemming the last three tons from Brokenrock Vineyard. #Napa
We still had one last smouldering pile of compost this morning. We are grateful the vineyards are almost completely unharmed (just a few singed vines and a couple acres of melted irrigation lines)... Daydreaming of the first rains coming and how exciting it will be to watch fresh green grass taking over charcoal hillsides. 📷@elanamelissa #brokenrockvineyard
We are picking our last blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon this week and are thrilled that our tests are showing incredibly low amounts of volatile phenols (suggesting there may be no issue with smoke taint from the fires in this vintage) 🙌🥂 #brokenrockvineyard
@elanamelissa checking the remaining Cab in #brokenrockvineyard a couple days ago with fires still burning across the valley above Brownsvalley. It's been a difficult week, let's all show each other lots of love and share lots wine 🥂❤️
Please share this. We need visitors to know they are safe to return to Napa. Coming to town and supporting all our local business will help us recover faster.
With scorched Earth to the left and smoke still billowing in the distance from Partrick and Mt. Veeder, we are incredibly grateful to see Brokenrock Vineyard still standing. We will pick our last ten acres this week and there seems to be very little smoke taint. Thank you for your support and we apologise for the delay on communication last week due to fire related evacuations. Please continue enjoying our wine and we look forward to hosting you at our tasting room next year (we resume construction next week). www.primesolum.com #brokenrockvineyard #napavalley #northerncalifornia
The view during our pouring at the Fremont Apartments last night was insane! Thank you @patlandvineyards for setting it up.
