This past March, the Graduate School of Management, in partnership with the College of Viticulture and Enology, hosted the 17th annual UC Davis Wine Executive Program. The program is uniquely designed to blend both the business and science of winemaking, teaching the fundamentals of grape growing and winemaking as well as the finance, marketing, and management skills necessary to be profitable in today’s challenging and dynamic wine industry.

There are only 25 seats left in the 2018 program, which will happen on March 25-29. Sign up now before it’s sold out!

Contact Andy at:   shaker@shakerridgevineyard.com   Shaker Ridge Vineyard 530-620-2141

 

We will shortly have met all of our commitments for 2017 touriga (touriga nacional) and we will have about 0.5 ton still available. 

The fruit is in excellent condition and bird-netted; the chemistry for the touriga in this field (our “non-Quinta” field) had the following chemistry as of yesterday, 9/22/17:  23.0 brix, pH 3.45, TA 0.56.  Good for dry wine now; port-style with additional hang time. Price $1/lb, minimum 250 lbs.  We pick.

Thanks,

Andy

Grapes for Sale – Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon – Napa Valley

Contact Wreatha at wreatha@gmail.com if you are interested in reserving these grapes with small deposit. 

Premium Napa Valley Grapes! Amos Olson and Wreatha Duverney are sponsoring a group buy of a Merlot, Cab Fran and Cab Sav from a mature and meticulously maintained Napa Valley vineyard. Last year’s purchase that Amos and Wreatha made produced quality wines consistent with the expectation associated with Napa Valley.  There really is a reason for Napa Valley’s prestige and you can proudly put “Napa Valley” on your own wine label. 

Recognizing that these grapes are more costly, even small amounts for blending purposes will make a noticeable difference in your wine quality. Taking reservations for:

Cab Franc – estimated 650 pounds available at $2.70 per pound

Cab Sav – estimated 500 pounds available at $2.45 per pound

When the pick is ready, the grapes will be delivered and ready for pickup in Roseville.
