With another harvest and crush behind us, it is time to take a breather before pruning and a full slate of spring projects begin.  The 2014 harvest at SpierHead was a great success.  The weather remained cooperative [mostly], with all varietals ripening nicely. 
We planted 5 acres of new vineyard in 2014 and we have a little more to do next spring.  All of this new planting is pinot noir, consisting of a number of different clones.  Clonal variation is very significant in the pinot noir grape and it is our objective to have several French clones available for Bill Pierson, our winemaker, to work with.  We find that we are able to create a more complex pinot noir by blending different clones. 
As our tasting room is now closed for the season, one easy way to ensure that there is sufficient SpierHead on your table over the holidays, is to order online.  To show our appreciation for your support, shipping will be free for all online orders placed by Dec. 15, and we’ll guarantee delivery before Xmas.  Our online store is easy to navigate and it allows you to send wine as a gift.  If you do, we’ll include a gift card to let the grateful recipient know who Santa’s helper was.  To order, follow this link and click on Buy Wine   Wine club members should enter their promo code for their discount.  If you need help with that, just email us at
Happy holidays to all and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year.
