Harvest at Coursey Graves has come to a close – a nearly perfect vintage! The 2022 growing season began with an unpredictable spring shower, followed by generous sun and cool marine influences. During the mid-summer months, thermal inversion provided ideal temperatures, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. A pair of late heatwaves kicked harvest into high gear with the estate team hand-harvesting clusters at optimal sugar and acidity levels.

Our Associate Winemaker, Matt Casalenuovo, will now guide the wine through fermentation, pressing, élevage, and bottling before it is ready for you to enjoy! While we wait, we are excited to share a beautiful infographic highlighting the winemaking process and all of the decisions winemakers make after the grapes come off the vine. Enjoy!
