Old World Traditions Rooted in Sonoma
“…David Jeffrey has turned out simply stunning wines in the cool vintage of 2011…”
…So says critic John Gilman in evaluating Calluna’s 2011 vintage wines. The vintage yielded fewer grapes, cold weather, early rains and headaches for winemakers and vineyard managers alike. Many consider it the most challenging vintage in recent memory. However, 2011 was an excellent vintage for Calluna Vineyards with fruit already harvested or ready to be harvested when the rains arrived in early October of that year. Calluna was spared from the Botrytis mold that threatened to ravage the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma.
