Viticulture and Oenology


In this newsletter published by Seven Hills Winery, winemaker Casey McClellan reports fruit from the 2008 vintage has good acidity, ripeness, and color, and the resulting wines should have excellent aging qualities. McClellan goes on to note the uniqueness of the Seven Hills Winery terroir and critically analyzes the world-wide use of such a broad descriptor. Further content includes information for new and current wine releases from 2005-2006, an announcement of Salmon Safe certification at two grape sites (McClellan Estate and Seven Hills Vineyard), recent accolades, and news about the Twelfth Annual Holiday Barrel Tasting event in December.
