Vintage 2014–trying to finish up!

Vintage 2014--trying to finish up!

Every year I think I will get the previous year’s vintage wrapped up and in the bottle before the next harvest begins, but like every year it “ain’t gonna happen”. So here is my to-do list: Chardonnay/Night Flight (50 cases) —Cold stabilization and citric acid trial. Need to test to see when cold stabilized Need taste […]

Winemaking–June 2015

Winemaking--June 2015

It is at this point every year that I say, “ohmigoodness!  time to bottle the wine before harvest gets here!  Harvest is about 8 weeks away and we need to empty the tanks so that we will have space for the 2015 harvest–which might be big due to all that rain we received in May 2015. […]

Racking The Wine

Racking The Wine

So what’s next for wine making at Salado Winery Company?  We’ve fermented the 2014 harvest, pressed the wine out of it and now we’re doing the first racking.  What’s racking?  Essentially we are siphoning the wine OFF of the gunk.  Lots of bits and pieces were missed by the first rough filtration that we did […]


Time to Press the “3 Texan” Cabernet Sauvignon

Time to Press the "3 Texan" Cabernet Sauvignon

The hardest decision for me as a winemaker is trying to decide when to press the red wine.  On one hand, an extended time with the skins could mean more maceration, or in other words, better tannin extraction, richer color and improved flavor, but the risk of spoilage and too much of a good thing […]

Almost Halfway through Harvest Season

Chardonnay is nearly done fermenting, closely followed by Tempranillo, Merlot and Malbec.  On Saturday, August 16 in the afternoon, we’ll be processing grapes from Bravo Texan’s vineyard.  Throughout the weekend, I expect we’ll be pressing the tempranillo, merlot and malbec.  Should be a busy time for us!
