Yes, Dutch Henry has its first mule kicking in the stall. We successfully crushed our Pope Valley S. Blanc last Saturday (8/29/09). It is currently bubbling away in a refrigerated stainless tank. The cellar has been scrubbed and polished, the crusher and press work, and we have one varietal under our belt. Next up: our Estate Syrah in front of the winery. Probably end of next week. 100 F in the shade at the winery yesterday and it RAINED! That was a first for me and I’m a native Northern Californian of 40 something years.
