Shiny New Tanks!

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Shiny New Tanks!

We are growing, yet again. Well, we just added some new tanks to accommodate the growth we’ve experienced over the last several months. The new tanks allow us to be more independent and sustainable. We are moving more and more towards being able to handle all of our production in house. We still have plans for more tanks and another building. These things will help streamline our processes and minimize the set up work involved in different stages of production …

It’s officially Spring.

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on It’s officially Spring.

It’s officially Spring. Which, for us, means unpredictable weather. One day we have beautiful sunshine and the next gloomy skies and torrential down pour. But hey, you don’t hear us complaining about rain!! We got 1.5″ of rain in about 30 hours last week. There was even a tornado warning for our area! Crazy. We have had sunshine-y days this week, but we’re expecting more rain on Thursday. We are really enjoying the amount of rain we are getting here. …

WINTER IS HERE!

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on WINTER IS HERE!

The fog gets thick this time of year. From the office we can’t see much past the new winery building. As we peer down the vineyard, the distant rows fade into the haze. We are called Miramont because of the boundless views we get from every angle of the property, specifically the Sierras to the East and Mount Diablo to the West (Miramont is French for Mountain View)….but today is not one of those days.

It is so good to have Sara back from maternity leave as we conclude harvest and embark on a busy season closing out the year with our new vintage. Sara captured some of her favorite moments with her new baby and wanted to share those with our valued customers.

Harvest Update 2016

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Harvest Update 2016

At Miramont Estate we are happy to be finished harvesting our vineyard. It is a special time for us, not only because it marks the end of an unpredictable growing season and the beginning of an exciting new vintage, but also because we get to experience it as a family. You can see Michael’s family getting in on the action as they watch their dad drive the harvester. We harvest most of our vineyard by machine, but some hard to …

SUMMER 2016 UPDATE

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on SUMMER 2016 UPDATE

Pardon the cliche but time really does fly.  We can’t believe its been so long and how much has changed since our last post.   Harvest is around the corner.  These grapes are at about 19 brix, so in about 3 more weeks they will be ready.  In addition to the grapes ripening we have been making so many improvements to the grounds and buildings.  We are finally situated in our new building.  Early last week we added three more tanks. …

  Enjoy these images of bud break at Miramont Estate Vineyards. Meanwhile, there are still a lot of changes taking place at Miramont Estate Vineyards- as Dave works hard to beautify the grounds in new ways, the whole property is starting to take on a new look. For those of you who visit our winery on a regular (or irregular) basis, one exciting change you will enjoy is our new downstairs office. Still under construction, we expect it to be in …

January Construction Update

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on January Construction Update

We have been getting behind on our construction updates so here is what has been going on for the last couple of months. We snap photos with whatever device is handy at the time so some may be a bit blurry but we think you’ll get the idea. The pool is a fun addition for the family, but it is also fulfilling a building code requirement to have water reserves on our property. It is much prettier than the above-ground …

November Construction Update

Posted on by miramontestate.com in Uncategorized | Comments Off on November Construction Update

Concrete pouring was supposed to be a 2-day job. Because of the wishy washy weather patterns, we wound up having to have it poured all on Monday. The crew contracted by Roland Construction worked from 4:00 am until midnight and then came back on Tuesday morning to do some finishing touches.   The gunite for the pool was installed last week. It was incredible. They spray it on super thick- about 1 foot- and then go back with a trowel and …
