Our fourth vintage is safely resting in Barrels, this stage of winemaking is known as “élevage” the French winemaking term for the time and processes between fermentation and bottling. Our 2019 Vintage wines should begin to be bottled in the spring of 2021 and then gradually released for sale starting a few months after bottling.
Wine grapes for this Vintage were sourced from Rolling View Vineyards in Willcox AVA, Southwest Wine Center Vineyard at Yavapai College and DA Ranch both in the Verde Valley (AVA status is pending). This harvest saw a bountiful wine crop in Arizona. Heart Wood Cellars focused on Quality over Quantity and we will have a few surprises for our ‘Ohana Wine Club Members, Friends, and Supporters—people who enjoy Our Wines.
