HALL Napa Valley Harvest 2012
Harvest 2012 - a message from our Vintner, Kathryn Hall
Well, we did it. We made it through another successful harvest: the intensive monitoring, the nail-biting reliance on Mother Nature, the immense coordination and teamwork it takes to go from perfectly ripened fruit on the vine to newly born wine in the cellar. 2012 will go down in the history books as a phenomenal vintage. We have done everything possible to capture the excellence of the fruit in these wines that we've just begun to craft. Craig and I must again thank our amazing winery team for their tireless commitment.With this harvest, we had the opportunity to introduce a new piece of cutting edge technology to our winemaking process, the optical sorter. This amazing tool is precisely calibrated to locate and eliminate any imperfect berry that comes through our sorting table. The result is nothing but pristine fruit in our tanks. The technology really is mind blowing. you will find photos, a video and more detailed explanation of the process by clicking here. As we enter this season of celebration, our wish is that you are surrounded by loved ones, thankful for the blessings of this past year and hopeful for the year ahead. Craig and I are incredibly grateful that you are a part of our extended HALL Family, and we raise a glass to your health and happiness.
