Welcome to Lonesome Spring Ranch | Vineyard Information

Vineyard Report

The heat units are lower than 2015 but are tracking ahead of the the long term average.  There have been fewer heat spikes and ripening weather has been optimal.  We are expecting to begin harvest with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc potentially starting the week of August 21st.  Look for ripening to be early and high quality again.   Our vineyard crew is working diligently to get the vineyard prepared for harvest. We look forward to seeing you at the Vineyard!
