Collection: PRE-ARRIVAL: Summer Dreams 2022 Release

2022 Vintage - Sonoma Coast: Following the drought-stricken 2021 season, late 2021 and early 2022 brought generous rains that restored water reserves, essential for healthy vine growth. Warm early temperatures prompted an early bud break, but a series of spring frosts and a challenging flowering period led to a significant reduction in potential yields, further exacerbated by a late summer heat spike over Labour Day that led to dehydration and crop losses.
Despite these challenges, the overall cooler temperatures for most of the summer helped maintain vine health, and a lack of prolonged extreme heat spared the vines from sunburn. In summary, the 2022 vintage in Sonoma County was one of stark contrasts with significant crop reductions but also moments of exceptional quality in surviving lots.
"Many 2022s are richly deserving of attention, while the best are truly exceptional." - Antonio Galloni
