THE VINTAGE
We rang in 2017 with three arctic fronts that
brought temperatures down to -10 in the coldest
areas. This was followed by a cool, wet spring that
pushed bud break back by two weeks. We opened
our canopies early to allow sunlight and
promote growth. Early summer was very warm accelerated the season and pushed ripening
back on track. During the heat spikes in August we
had a very slight haze that kept us from hitting the
triple digits.
As we rolled into harvest, the winds changed and
our skies cleared. The weather in Walla Walla was
ideal, with our usual long warm days and
wonderfully cool evenings. “The result was another
amazing vintage with nice yields of bold fruit with
great acidity,” says Winemaker and Partner JeanFrançois Pellet.
