Note from Sarah and Todd
Vineyard News…We mentioned veraison at the beginning of the Newsletter. For those who don’t know what this means, it is the beginning of berry growth to berry ripening and the color change from green to purple (in the case of red varietals). It also means we’re in the final stretch of the growing season. Todd and Richard will begin testing sugar levels of the grapes this month to start planning harvest.
Replant News…the new vineyards are planted (see the photo above). Infrastructure for the vineyard, including soil testing, soil amendments, resting period, irrigation, wire and posts were ready and the new vines were planted within days of arrival. Behind the office, we have planted an acre of Cabernet Franc and down by the creel, we have planted some Semion and Sauvignon Blanc. While we have purchased our whites in the past from vineyards we managed, we are especially excited to have our own whites in the ground and growing at ACVV.
While Sarah and Robert have been busy planning Fall Club and specials, Richard, Todd and Juan have been racking and preparing wines for the early September bottling, and Zartha has been seeing lots of visitors and welcoming new Club members. It’s always busy here!
Sarah & Todd…July was very hectic and flew by! We hosted another Club member Pop-Up Party in San Diego and ended the month with events at Brush Creek in Wyoming and the Anderson Family Reunion in the UP. Noah celebrated his 22nd Birthday and his first platinum record! His career as a Mixing Engineer and Producer in the music industry is off to an amazing start! Julia is preparing to head back to Marquette as a Sophomore near the end of August…the summer has gone by quickly for all of us!
The family reunion was filled with fun, good food and lots of stories and old family photographs going back nearly 100 years! Jordan (Sarah’s oldest) flew in from Rome and surprised everyone; it was great to be together and reconnect with family, and always nice to be back at the Anderson family farm.
Todd, Sarah, and the Anderson’s Conn Valley Team
