Happy October from everyone here at Ektimo Vineyards! We are enjoying these crisp mornings and are definitely excited to announce things are finally starting to calm down a bit here in the cellar! This year’s harvest has been busy but the fruit is absolutely fantastic and we are so excited for the wines to come out of this 2016 vintage!! Between the perfect weather we had during harvest and the moderate yield from the vines – we are getting some big, vibrant fruit flavors that will make for a really authentic expression of the grapes in this year’s vintage.
Shout out to our amazing winemaking crew – Lisa, Zac, Ray & Ivan for working countless hours this season (and it’s still not quite over). You guys are what makes this place tick and we don’t know where we’d be without you!
