Spring 2018

Another beautiful day in the vineyard. Fruit set is well underway.


 

And the newly grafted Petit Verdot!

Fall 2017

All the wine is in barrels and the olives are soaking in brine. We spent Thanksgiving wrapping up fall chores before the California "winter" sets in — pruning fruit trees, cleaning tools, and enjoying the finally (almost) finished house!

Community Harvest 2017

Community Harvest is a non-profit organization that engages volunteers to grow fresh fruits and vegetables to provide to those experiencing hunger. A group of volunteers from the Davis branch came through our orchards twice this season already, harvesting 185 lbs of peaches and nectarines one day and 175 lbs of nectarines and 25 lbs of apples another!

The fruit was delivered to organizations around Davis, including STEAC, Kennedy Apartments, Cesar Chavez Apartments, Eleanor Roosevelt Circle, DCM Shelter, and Davis Senior Center.
