Block 100 of Mathis Vineyard: Home of Premium Grenache Grapes

by Peter Mathis on September 18, 2013

In the last post's video I showed you where the rosé comes from in Mathis Vineyard. This time I'll show you where the red Grenache wine comes from in the vineyard -- block 100. The vines and grapes are different in this area. Take a look:

I actually began harvest at Mathis Vineyard over the past weekend. But I only pick what's ripest. So there are several more picking sessions to go.

Soon-to-be 2013 Mathis Grenache

by Peter Mathis on September 09, 2013

There's little time to write with harvest already in swing in parts of Sonoma for vintage 2013. Hence, you're more likely to see video content here than a lot of words!

Cutting to the chase: Here's a less-than-2-minutes video from the vineyard on getting ready for the 2013 harvest. It was taken Saturday with temperatures nearing 100 degrees (but not quite). And pardon the no-shirt look. I was hot! Mathis Wine is not a "no-shirt, no-shoes, no-service" operation! LOL
