VINFOLK

Cameron Winery’s guide to making Pinot Noir

On a sunlit day in September, the Cameron Winery Vinfolk gathered in our bucolic vineyard to share stories, break bread and explore the nuances of Pinot noir.

And now, in celebration of the release of our 2013 single vintage wines, we invite you join our community and watch this hand crafted video that, at last, shares one family recipe for making Pinot noir.

2011 gets its @#$% together!

Friday, October 28th, 2011

It’s a miracle! The first two weeks of October were pure rain and seemed to signal a disastrous harvest ahead. Indeed in most years such an event would have rotted the fruit and sent us scurrying for a positive message to be gleaned from it all. And, indeed, I was at that point as recently as October 15th.

Filling a fermenter with Clos Electrique

But then a wondrous thing occurred: the sun came out, the temperatures warmed up and I happily discovered that the fruit had, in most cases, been so far from ripeness earlier in the month that botrytis had not seen fit to start its attack. Slowly, very slowly, I found my optimism returning. By the 20th of October when, incredibly, we picked our first grapes www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTB41_tvOaA, the long-term forecasts were turning increasingly in our favor.

And now as we hit the end of the month we are seeing gorgeous Pinot noir filling our fermenters, Pinot noir with firm acidity and moderate sugars (hooray for 12.5% alcohols) and, wonder of wonders, ripe full flavors. Meanwhile the white grapes continue to sit in the vineyards slowly losing acid and gaining flavors (the working descriptor here is slowly!). But still the long-term forecasts are holding in there and our first picking of Clos Electrique Blanc yielded pommace from the press that smelled of cloves, a very good sign!!

Mondo Ego (2006)

MondoEgo!

Our gritty, hard-hitting,
tell-all documentary

“Wine is all about image,” declares hipster consultant Michel Ard’on, and we couldn’t agree more — after all, we paid him to tell us to say that. And so, taking his advice to heart, we re-branded our mailer this year as a moving image, a documentary which shines the hard light of truth into the dark, stuffy closet of the wine industry, revealing… well, what do we have back in there? A few coats… an umbrella… woah! micro-oxygenation — so small! … and — hey, the Wine Advocate! So that’s where we left it! And… I know it’s in here somewhere… Aha! MondoEgo!

(Thanks to Matt Giraud for directing, shooting, and cutting together this flick.)
