Over the past few decades, night harvesting has been embraced as the best way to harvest wine grapes. Many of the finest wineries in the world practice this method, including Ceja Vineyards! Here are a few reasons why we've decided to take on this method:
BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS FOR THE VINEYARD CREW
Let's be real, picking grapes by hand is back breaking work. All of our grapes are picked strictly by hand, making it extremely hard, meticulous work.
Although the Carneros agricultural zone may get cold at night, the days can be very warm, and our vineyard management crew quickly realized the benefits of not laboring through hot, sunny days. Pickers were able to work faster and more efficiently.
IT PRESERVES THE PURITY OF THE FRUIT
Keeping grapes cold protects the delicate flavors, skins and pulp. Heat can “cook” fruit destroying important acidity and softening pulp so the fruit tastes “flabby.” By picking when fruit is chilled, the grapes remain clean and fresh. You can taste the difference in the juice even before it’s made into wine.
IT MAXIMIZES WINERY EFFICIENCY
Interestingly, picking the grapes when they’re cold saves energy, because they don’t have to be mechanically pre-chilled before they’re crushed.
IT SHOWCASES BALANCED FRUIT FLAVORS
Cold temperatures keep acidity higher, minimize phenolic extraction of the skins and keep astringency in check. Warmth also changes the sugar composition of grapes, and can promote undesirable wild yeast fermentation. Higher sugar levels lead to the higher alcohols that Ceja avoids. By picking chilled, the resulting wine is fruit-forward but elegantly balanced, showcasing stone fruit nuances and vibrant acidity. Balance is key!
Please enjoy some raw night footage of our Ceja Vineyards harvest during previous years!
Like two peas in a pod, Belén Ceja Rivera and I are cousins (more like sisters + my best friend!) and is the daughter of our chief winemaker, Armando Ceja. We grew up together and have shared life to the fullest in every imaginable way. I am thrilled to share that she is our amazing assistant winemaker at Ceja Vineyards! I also might add that she is my honorary Matron of Honor in my upcoming wedding in a few weeks (YAY!). She graduated from Fresno State University with a degree in enology and is paving the way for other inspiring Latina winemakers in Sonoma Valley. I'm so proud of her and her determination to make quality wines. Talk about a kick butt new force in the wine industry!
My passions and contributions have led me to oversee the marketing and sales side of our business. Together, as the next generation in wine, we are determined to ispire other women in the wine industry by being examples that if you follow your passions anything is possible with an education, focus, a vision and hard work. Thank you for following us on this beautiful journey - this is only the beginning!
P.S. Stay tuned for more upcoming 2018 harvest updates and shop our new wine releases today. x
Summer In a Glass!
We are delighted to share our newest vintages to the Ceja portfolio! Introducing our: 2016 Chardonnay, 2017 Bella Flor Rosé and 2016 Sauvignon Blanc -- the perfect compliments to the warm summer months paired with your favorite dishes!
2016 Estate Chardonnay | Napa Valley - Carneros
Crisp, clean and refreshing, this is one of our signature white wines! Our Chardonnay opens with bright apple, citrus blossom and honeysuckle aromatics followed by notes of lightly toasted hazelnuts. Rounded and silky on the palate, flavors of pear, white peach and citrus are underscored by juicy fruit and mouthwatering acidity. Subtle toasted oak notes add spice and richness to the long, focused finish.
2017 Bella Flor Rosé of Syrah | Sonoma Coast
Yes way rosé! Our Bella Flor (beautiful flower) rosé is elegant and cheerful with vibrant aromas of rose petals and subtle hints of strawberry and berry. Bursts of fresh pomegranate and deep raspberry drive the palate. These flavors are balanced with a silky mouthfeel and uplifting acidity.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc | Sonoma Coast
My definition of the ultimate "patio pounder." The last few weeks in Napa and Sonoma Valley has reached a scorching between 80-90 degrees and this has been one of my go to wines to refresh the palate. Our Sauvignon Blanc highlights a classic profile of citrus blossom, tropical notes and green apple aromas. Crisp on the palate with layers of tropical fruit, lime zest and a creamy texture.
Browse our entire wine shop today and stock your cellars with our newest wine releases. Happy summer sipping amigos!
