The Wait is Over! We began picking our Dolce vineyard in southeastern Napa Valley on Monday, November 30, making it the latest harvest start date in our 30-year history.

Maybe a little, but when conditions are just right, those ugly grapes remarkably transform into the exquisite late harvest wine we’ve come to refer to as Liquid Gold.
