Within days, our first grapes from the 2011 vintage will be harvested. Join us to celebrate the season with a simple trivia contest. Can you guess the official start dates of harvest 2011? Post your answers for both Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon here on our blog, on Twitter or on our Facebook page. Winners will receive a gift from John Jordan.

One hint: Viticulturist Brent Young tested sugars on our Estate Merlot yesterday, and the grapes are sitting at 22.9 Brix.
