Patiently awaiting the grapes!
Every year our family (& friends) get together in the fall to have fun making some VINO! In the past we’ve tried many varieties of reds, Chilean, Nero D’Avolo, and Sangiovese. This past week we put our grape order in for 26 cases of Montepulciano grapes grown in Northern California but originating in the Abruzzo region of Italy. This comes out to be about 936 lbs of grapes which will yield 50 gallons of wine that The Mathews’ will enjoy at all of our family gatherings throughout the year!! We never know when the grapes will come in and are pretty much slaves to the harvest for the month of October….so until then…we will sip some Sangiovese from last year and patiently await the grapes!!
