LAST YEAR'S EVENT SCHEDULE

 

Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley likes cold, east facing hills when further inland (the east face is away from the sun in heat of late fall days), and south and protected west faces nearer to the coast; shallow, low-vigor soils; low crop; good karma; growers with other means of income.
