A tasting with Rusack Vineyards is on tap for Wednesday’s Winemaker Tasting.
Come in and taste these remarkable wines. At 5:00 pm, $40. Call ahead so we can prepare your seat!
The Estate Vineyard at Rusack is situated on 48 acres, 21 of which were replanted in 2003 utilizing cutting-edge technology and vines selected to take advantage of Ballard Canyon’s unique terroir. These 17 acres of vines are divided into small lots so that each can be managed to produce the best grapes possible. They are planted following the contours of the land, and run 11° off of a north-south direction, allowing balanced sun exposure on both sides of the vine canopy for optimal ripening.
The grape varietals selected were limited to those best suited to the relevant microclimates. Syrah is being grown, along with smaller lots of Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Petite Sirah. In addition, one-quarter acre of Merlot and Petit Verdot are grown on classic Bordeaux trellising and spacing of meter by meter with an ultimate destination of blending into the renowned ‘Anacapa,’ a Bordeaux-style red.
