David Coffaro Vineyard and Winery

arrow April 26 - May 2, 2015

Monday April 27, 2015

We had about 1500 people here on the weekend to enjoy the Passport to Dry Creek Valley event. Our sales were a little better than last year so we are happy. We had a great time on every night with friends and relatives bringing many bottles from other wineries to try. I even got out to go to wineries I had not visited before. I am real tired but life goes on.

Below is some more info on barrels from a person I respect. Like I said we will be trying some 4 year aged barrels.

"When you air dry wood here is what happens:
1/obviously the moisture goes away
2/polysaccharides in the wood are released
3/bitter phenolics are neutralized
4/little micropores are created...the longer the wood is seasoned, the more...this means every time you put another WINE INTO THE BARREL, the wine finds more pores, more flavors"



For any comments or questions I encourage any of you to e-mail.....david@coffaro.com
