It’s been a busy autumn for Ellipsis Wine Company. Between taking home awards from the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, harvesting three delectable varieties of Pinot Noir and a Chardonnay. Sadly, these wines won’t be available until late next year.
However, I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with them while they were bottling this year’s release, a 2011 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. This was the first time I’d seen the tasty stuff bottled. La Petite Bottling Company brought out a portable trailer with all the gear to the Tedeschi Family Winery, in Calistoga, and the whole thing was done in a day.
This Pinot Noir will be one of the many wines featured at the Ellipsis Harvest Party at Seven Arches Vineyards, on November 3rd. If you haven’t attended one of the Ellipsis Wine parties you’re missing out, so why don’t you get on their mailing list and change that.
