Growing Season Notes Alder Ridge Vineyard is a steep site with south-facing slopes overlooking the Columbia River. 2020 was a mild growing season with mid-April bud break followed by a warm spring. Heat accumulation tracked the long-term average with veraison occurring in early August. The wildfires facing the west blew smoke into the Columbia River basin during the second week of September. This vineyard was picked the third week of September. The long growing season combined with low yields resulted in wonderful balance, length, and aromatics in the whites, and concentrated flavor, color, texture and structure.

Growing Season Notes The 2016 growing season started with early bud-break. A cool mid-June proved to be advantageous for almost ideal bloom and fruit set. Moderate summer temperatures allowed for gradual berry growth and mild weather through the Fall allowed fruit to finish ripening gradually for the perfect balance of acids and sugars. The Grenache varietal ripened gradually and evenly.
