Coming down the home stretch... August 01 2016This has been a pretty mild summer, but boy did we heat up last week! The grapes are changing colors and getting ripe. We are looking at another four to five weeks before harvest starts here on the Home Ranch. Come on by the tasting room before it gets crazy. We are offering futures through the month of August, if you like to speculate!
Spring, Sprang, Sprung! May 26 2016
Here we go, spring is here! The vineyards are all fuzzy green, the wildflowers are blooming, and yes, the birds are chirping! We continue to ship the 2016 Wine Club cases out, so if you want one, you better order it soon!
We are gearing up for the Pinot Noir Festival and hope to see many of you that weekend. Stop by for some wine, tacos, and conversation.
Harvest Is On! August 28 2015We have been picking grapes for over a week now! Today we brought in the first of the Pinot Noir to the crush pad. Things are looking good for the 2015 vintage! Perfect time to visit the winery and see how we do it.
What a whirlwind! May 25 2015May brought the 18th Pinot Noir Festival, and then Memorial Weekend. We have been super busy in the tasting room. We had a great time meeting new people and visiting with old friends! We have release our winemaker Matt Evan's side project 2012 Pinot Noir. Come by the tasting room, or order on-line to check it out!
Happy New Year from Elke Vineyards! January 29 2015We wish you a wonderful 2015. Hope to see you at our tasting room!
December is up next! November 29 2014Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is time to gear up for all that December brings. Whatever holiday you celebrate, we hope Elke Vineyards can take part! We are looking forward to spending time with friends and family, and spreading holiday cheer.
Holiday Dinner November 16 2014We are looking forward to spending time with friends and family for Thanksgiving. We have our 2013 Chardonnay, 2007 Blue Diamond Pinot Noir, and some Brut Sparkling ready to take to Grandma's house. There is still time to order wine for your holiday table.
Beautiful Days November 01 2014It could not be more beautiful in Anderson Valley. Sunny days, and the vineyards are turning orange, yellow, and red. We added to new holiday specials to the website to get you ready for visiting with family and friends.
Yay! 2013 Choardonnay! October 18 2014Just in time for autumn weather, we have released our 2013 Chardonnay. We took a hands off approach with this wine, letting fermentation start on it's own with natural yeast, and then leaving it on the lees for almost a year. We used neutral oak barrels to mellow acidity, but not overwhelm the wine. And what we now have is a slightly wild, rich and supple wine. Meyer lemon, baked apples, and toasted filberts come to mind. We are smitten, and think you will be too.
Barrel Tasting and Futures July 20 2014Taste our 2013 Pinot Noirs straight from the barrel at the Anderson Valley Barrel Tasting Weekend July 26 and 27.
