Holmes Gap Vineyard
Two great Holiday Weekends to enjoy award winning wines!
Join us and kick off the fall wine tasting season with tastes of our 2013 and 2014 Estate Pommard Pinot Noirs along with our ‘new release’ of 2015 Estate Pinot Gris.
We will be pouring at Beacon Hill Vineyard in Gaston on Saturday and Sunday, November 19 & 20, and again the following weekend, November 25 & 26, from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
The $20 tasting fee gets you the opportunity to taste ‘our’ great wines along with those of 7 or 8 other “local boutique” winemakers, all the while enjoying some tasty snacks.
Fee free and water are provided for designated drivers.

The 2014 vintage is moving rapidly towards harvest. The fruit load looks heavy even though we have made three passes with the clippers. We carried a little extra fruit up to the last pass just to slow the development a bit and allow time for flavors and acid to balance without pushing sugar through the roof. Were running about 130 degree days ahead of last year and expect harvest to begin around September 28, ending October 6. That is of course if the weather continues to cooperate.
