Tim Talks - Episode 22 - Estate Viognier Harvest!

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. We are so appreciative of this day. How fitting that at sunrise on this Labor Day, Trattore will harvest its estate Viognier grapes, and what a beautiful harvest it is. Thank you to our vineyard and winemaking crew! We hope you enjoy all that goes into the vine to wine cycle. White winemaking is a bit different than the red grape harvest from episode 21. Tune in!

Tim Talks - Episode 19 - Veraison!

Tune in this week with Tim and Craig as they talk about veraison at Trattore Vineyards - the transition from berry growth to berry ripening, and many changes in berry development occur at veraison. It's pre-harvest preparation time, the calm before the busy period of grape picking, and long hours in the cellar.

Tim Talks - Episode 14 - Grafting Grapes

Tim will explain how we graft grapes to introduce new varietals on our estate vineyards. This is a process in which a new grapevine is produced by making a cut in the rootstock and then adding scion wood that is cut to fit inside the incision made in the rootstock. We're grafting three varietals: Counoise, Cinsault, and Syrah!
