The winery has quite a task to complete each summer. They sample hundreds of Pinot noir lots over the course of several weeks to pin down the exact combination that will beome the next vintage bottled.

The 2011 Tavola Pinot Noir will be a blend of 54 lots. This means it contains Pinot noir fruit from several different vineyards, made up of different clones and is cellared in a variety of barrels. By design, Tavola Pinot Noir is a bright, fruit-forward wine that is easy to drink and ready to enjoy upon release.
