The Importance of Mechanical Cultivation

Tilling from Parrish Family Vineyard on Vimeo.

It's a busy time of year in the vineyard as crews are working with fruit set and the abundance of healthy leaves on the vines. 

Winemaker David Parrish took us into the vineyard in this short video to explain the Mechanical Cultivation process. It's an important part of our sustainability efforts because it keeps us from having to spray anything on the vines or the weeds. It's an expensive process and not one that a lot of wineries are able to afford, but it does produce healthier vines which create better wines.

New Paired Tasting Flight Experience

This Friday, April 12th, marks the beginning of a new wine & food offering at Parrish Family Vineyard. For many years, Owner and Winemaker, David Parrish and his daughter and General Manager, Cecily Parrish Ray, envisioned offering unique food pairings to accompany their Estate wines.

She creates an experience with the new Paired Flight that is unparalleled to what Parrish has offered before.

The entire flight is untraditional and showcases Chef Rachel’s creativity. Her use of ingredients help pull out different elements of the wine, which makes it a fun discovery of how food can work with wine in unexpected ways.

You are invited to join Parrish Family Vineyard for this new wine and food experience on the weekends, Fridays through Sundays, from 11am-4pm. The menu will change with the seasons.

Sauvignon Blanc paired with Grilled Chicken Stuffed Sweet Peppers

Racking

Take a Minute: Racking from Parrish Family Vineyard on Vimeo.

There are 3 times lees racking is done in wine making...

1st racking - Grape solids that are in the tanks

2nd racking - Done 2 to 3 months later in the barrel, lees usually are dead yeast cells and some leftover grape sediment

3rd racking - Happens at the very end of barrel aging, tend to be long-chain tannins that fall out of solution
