As the year comes to a close, we spend a lot of time thinking about the year and all of the folks who have visited us and enjoyed our wines. We have so much fun getting to know everyone, and we look forward to lifting a glass with you in the coming year. Thank you for your continued support of Celani Family Vineyards!
Mother Nature was kind to us in 2013. Yields exceeded our initial expectations, with about 20% more fruit than we typically harvest. Though it doesn't sound possible, our growing season was both extended and early. Miraculously we experienced warm, even temperatures from early spring until the end of harvest, giving us exceptional fruit. What a dream year to grow grapes!
With 2013 In the last few months, we’ve unveiled new vintages of wine that you might find interesting for the holiday season.
This fall, we released the 2012 Grand Reserve Chardonnay. To refresh your memory, the Chardonnay is made in a Burgundian style, so it will have gentle acid...think Asian pear and white flowers. It's perfect for crab or as a holiday starter wine. (2012 Chardonnay~$50 bottle)
In the last two weeks, we’ve also released the 2011 Tenacious. It's a youngster, but has a plummy fruit aroma, with just a bit of toasty, brown spice. This wine still tops my list for pork, or any meat grilled over fire. Holiday foods like stuffing with sage, or prime rib would also be perfect with Tenacious. (2011 Tenacious~$60 bottle)
The 2010 Cabernet will officially be released in the late winter, but we couldn’t wait to share it with you. It’s a youngster like the Tenacious, but it will open nicely with a little decanter time. (2010 Cabernet~$80 bottle)
The 2010 Ardore is available in limited quantities. This gorgeous wine will also be officially released in the late winter, but I really want to share it with our biggest fans before we release it to our larger mailing list. (2010 Ardore~$195 bottle)
