All the ferments for the 2016 pinot noirs (777, 115, Pommard and Wadenswil) wrapped up in mid-October, so Bells Up winemaker Dave and our consulting winemaker Erica pressed everything on October 18. Here’s some photos from the day, taken by John Toso of A Frame in Time Photography, who came out with Diane Nemarnik of Nemarniki Vineyards (the grower of our Pommard and Wadenswil) to help that day.
John and Diane left after the exciting stuff was over; Sara managed to show up just as the cleaning was in full swing. And, because she can never resist taking photos of Dave CLEANING stuff, here’s some great photos of Dave spraying down all the equipment.
The barrels containing 2016’s wines are all now back at the Bells Up estate winery and tasting room. Stop by and visit them soon!
