Harvest 2017 Laurel Glen Vineyard
Estate Cabernet Sauvignon a top Sonoma Mountain, grown since 1968.
This past weekend we held our 2017 Harvest Celebration and Pickup Party
We started off with a Vineyard Adventure. Our Wine Club members broke up into teams of two. Each team had 20 minutes to pick as much fruit as they could. The team that picked the most fruit won fabulous prizes (or maybe a bottle of wine.) Once our club members finished picking, and hand cranked their fruit through the Destemmer/Crusher into a half ton bin, they came back to the Laurel Glen Vineyard Tasting Room in Glen Ellen for lunch.
In addition to the Fall Club release wines, we opened a 6L bottle of 1997 Laurel Glen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the library. Although 20 years old, the color was great and the wine was delish.
