STONERIVER VINEYARDS

 

VINEYARD INFORMATION: 

All of our vineyards have been independently certified LIVE sustainable and Salmon Safe since 2012. LIVE is the highest certification in the world for sustainable viticulture. No herbicides have been used in our vineyards since 2017.

2016 GROWING CONDITIONS: 

The 2016 growing season began with a relatively warm and dry spring with no requirement for frost protection. Bud break started the first of April, approximately a week earlier than 2015. After bud break the weather was intermittently cooler over the next 3 to 4 weeks. This was followed by a period of moderate to higher temperatures. The result was reasonably even growing conditions up thru harvest in early September. This was about a week earlier than 2015. Overall, 2016 is proving to be a pretty good year. Our wines well balanced, with richer flavors and excellent quality.
