Temperatures remained steady and warm throughout the growing season, without any significant heat spikes, making for a cool, unhurried harvest mid October.

Winemaker: Don Baker

While Sciandri Family Vineyards is celebrating its 15th harvest year, it is only in the last 10 years the family has produced wine from their prized estate grapes once sold to other wineries. They hired a talented winemaker, Don Baker, who has a remarkable winemaking resume which includes experience working with the famed Joseph Phelps. With Don at the helm, Sciandri Family Vineyards is making impressive wines year after year. Part of their strategy is to cellar vintages for a few years and release wine when it is aged and ready to drink.
