News:

Sadly just after Christmas we lost our 12 year old White Shepherd and Yellow Lab mix Champagne. We still miss her terribly but we are comforted by our surviving partners Syrah and Tawny. Now on to happier news.

The 2011 Harvest - We picked grapes on 5 successive weekends and with the help of good friends and neighbors processed in excess of 10,000 lbs of grapes this year. Estate grapes included Cabernet Franc, Grenache Noir, Alicante Bouschet, and our first ever harvest of Petit Verdot; from neighboring vineyards we also obtained Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. All are safely fermented and put away in barrels and tanks to get happy!

 

New Products - Gourmet Soaps from Sky Valley Farm have been added to our line of Woof'n Rose logo products. See Woof'n Rose Wines and Merchandise for more information.
