Seeing Purple – Harvest 2016

On Monday we rang in the harvest season with our only green, golden grape-child, Sauvignon Blanc. It was beautiful and looks like it’s going to be a fantastic vintage! The rest of the season will be filled with blue, purple, and red grapes. Soon it will become a blur of purple as we will be harvesting a total of 11 estate varieties, forecasted to be 60 tons! This will be our busiest season ever, but our proudest.

Since 1995 we have been harvesting our own Cabernet Sauvignon, but this year will be the first year we harvest all estate fruit! Estate just means that it is from our vineyard. So, anytime you see “Estate” on a wine label, it means that the grapes came from that winery’s vineyard. Furthermore, it means that the winery has watched these grapes from slumber, bud, flower, veraison, ripe to juice. It’s a lot more work, but a dream for any winery. This is why this harvest will mean that much more to us.

So, what is on the line up…well, Sauvignon Blanc is one, but the other ten are: Cabernet Sauvginon (obviously, with it being us), Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Malbec, and Zinfandel. These grapes are coming from three terroir-diverse vineyards in Creston, El Pomar, and Adelaida, which are sub-AVAs of the Paso Robles District. Here’s a quote of my dad, David, from a recent article:

“Every year, the fruit is going to be different thanks to weather,” says Parrish. “But what we can count on are these three sites producing certain characteristics consistently. Creston, with its granitic soil and high calcium content produces grapes with beautiful color and flavor. El Pomar produces enormously round fruit and earthy flavors along with great mouthfeel. And in our Adelaida vineyard, with the mix of clay and calcareous, we get pronounced acidity, both full high tannins, great structure, and spice.”

This is why I find wine so fascinating is that every wine is going to be unique due to not only the variety, weather, winemaker style, but also the location (terroir) that the grapes were grown. As my dad says regularly, wine starts in the vineyard…how a vineyard is kept and its location will determine the grapes’ quality. So, here’s a cheers to the 2016 vintage as we feel it will be a great one!

Visit us next week (Labor Day Weekend, hurray!) at the tasting room as we’ll have out some of our Award Winning Wines!

Happy Harvest-

Parrish Picnic – Memories

On May 21st, we hosted our Parrish Picnic at the Creston Ranch & Vineyard, and it was a blast! This year we invited wine club members and guests to join us at our lakeside spot for wine releases, fishing tournament, vineyard walk, luncheon, and just all around relaxing time. We couldn’t have asked for a better day weather wise, as the only downside was the wind. Not only was the weather great, but the people were as well. From our wine club members, guests, caterers, to our staff…it wouldn’t have been such a success without the people. That is what makes this body of water so special is that it brings people together.

There was something meaningful to us, the family, to see the lakeside speckled with people relaxing and fishing. It brought back memories of family reunions, holidays, and just summer days spent fishing & swimming as a family.

Memories from the past.

This lake is really the livelihood of our ranch as it assists our vines, creates a home for fish, and is a source of water for the wildlife on our ranch. These things alone make it worth something, but add memories and it becomes irreplaceable. We are so blessed.

Check out the photos of the event below. We released our 2013 Petite Sirah, which will be showing up in the tasting room very soon.  The hit of the picnic was our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is currently available for wine club only.

Thank you to our staff (Lynlee, Caysi, Cyndi, and Erika), Two Cooks Catering, Vivant Fine Cheese, Negranti Ice Cream, and All About Events.

Cheers!

Parrish Picnic

We are looking forward to our Parrish Picnic on Saturday, May 21st!  We’ll be retreating to our Creston ranch and vineyard for this laid back event featuring new releases, a kebab luncheon (Two Cooks), locally made ice cream, a fishing tournament, fly fishing demonstrations with our winemaker David Parrish (my dad), vineyard walk, and lawn games.

It has been a couple years since we hosted an event at this location, so we thought it was time to float on back. If you’re looking for a retreat that day/weekend, feel free to join us! Here’s a recent video of the vineyard: https://vimeo.com/163939680

It is $50.00 per person and tickets can be purchased here.
