THE CAKES

A Taste For Tradition
There is a subtle romance in the art of winemaking, one that flows from earth to vine, barrel to bottle.

Growth
The acres are lush once again with endless rows of ripening fruit.

Harvest
Baskets bend under the weight of the year’s bounty.

Crushing
In rich tradition, the earth yields to the care and coaxing of human hands.

Fermentation
Steam rises, gears twist and flavors transform in a process of industrial artistry.

Barreling
Tucked into the tender hands of time, wine continues its journey to matured perfection.
