Waiting

The 2018 harvest is about to start and Mother Nature has decided she is not going to be easy or timid – she wants to start with a bang! The grapes have been ripening in what most farmers are calling an “average” harvest this year. The number of degree days is slightly behind delaying harvest, but not in our vineyards – everything wants to ripen at the same time. This Friday we are starting off with 4 Tons of Sonoma…

Châteauneuf-du-Pape – Say What?

This year we are contracting for 5 tons of Grenache which is a new varietal for us @KoiZen and I am getting super excited along with all of the anxiety with the rapidly approaching harvest. Grenache (Garnacha in Spain) is one of the most widely planted grape varietals in the world, standing at approximately 456,000 acres worldwide. Of all of these acres, we will take claim of about two acres for our 10,000 pounds of Grenache this year; this should…

Hurrying and Waiting

For us, all we can do is prepare the best we can and get ready for another harvest. This year, we are sourcing most of our…

In July of 1988, Adams County Winery in Pennsylvania produced a 125th-year commemorative bottle of Red and White wine. Lisa was raised in a small town just outside of Gettysburg and her mom bought…

Community

ast night we hosted the Rancho Bernardo Business Association which drew a large crowd of business owners from the local community. Many of the business owners didn’t know about us even though we are in the same community, but now they are part of our community. Our community has grown. After the event, I was sitting next to the pond with a glass of wine thinking about the community surrounding Koi Zen and began to ponder the community surrounding my…
