The 2017 wine growing season on Mt. Veeder, California, unfolded as a testament to the region’s resilience and the artistry of nature. The year commenced with a dry and mild winter, leading to early bud break. However, a late spring frost challenged the budding vines, leading to lower yields but ultimately enhancing concentration in the grapes. The summer unveiled a contrasting mix of warmer temperatures and cooling breezes typical of the mountainous terrain, providing the ideal conditions for the slow, even ripening of the fruit. This extended ripening period endowed the grapes with exceptional flavor development and balanced acidity. As the harvest approached, the consistent, moderate weather allowed for a deliberate picking of the fruit at its peak, resulting in wines that exude finesse and complexity. Despite the initial challenges, the 2017 vintage showcases the resilience of Mt. Veeder, offering wines that reflect the rugged elegance and distinct terroir for which the region is celebrated.
