Harvest season is what we work toward all year. All the countless hours babysitting each and every vine, sweating in that glorious Paso Robles sunshine, are worth it when we finally get to see the fruits (literally!) of our labor.
The harvest is the most significant part of the winemaking process, and a rather precise and intricate process. We choose a very specific timetable for harvesting based on the different varieties of grapes, their maturity level, the weather, and the sugar, acid and tannin levels of our grapes.
While we have always been incredibly hands on at Serena's Vineyard, this year Michael and I both retired from our long and successful career's as medical doctors, and we have been able to dedicate every moment to our dream - the vineyard! And the results certainly speak for themselves. 2013 is shaping up to be one of our best harvest's yet!
We can't wait to start processing and bottling these gorgeous grapes. Keep your eyes out for our 2013 vintage wines! They are sure to be some of our richest and boldest yet.
Here are the bottles striking a pose on the red carpet!
Check out that gorgeous red Silver Medal ribbon wrapped chicly around our Four Sisters Ranch 2009 Syrah. You'll also notice the Central Coast Wine Competition emblem glistening around the bottle neck. Gorgeous and fashionable, but never overstated.
And Serena's Vineyard 2010 Private Reserve Syrah is looking fierce in the classic red, white and blue medal from the super competetive Rhone Shootout where she scored an incredible 88! You know what they say - pride is the new black.
In all seriousness, we are so proud of these recent accolades, and can't wait for the next competition. In the meantime, wine lovers, make sure you hurry up to enjoy the limited supply of the Four Sisters 2009 Syrah. We simply can't keep this one on the shelves!

Tommy Ng of Private Select Wines in Shanghai, and Serena of Four Sisters Ranch and Serena's Vineyards celebrate the arrival of Red Hat Vineyards in Shanghai, China. These California wines along with the world class Paso Robles premium Serena's Vineyard boutique wines roll in a new wave of western quality and authenticity for the Chinese palate.
"Paso microclimates with wide diurnal temperature swings, intensifying the lush grape flavors and the colors of the grape skins and wines, with more sunshine than France, mineral rich soils and fine well water produces wines that are front palate fruit forward, exceptionally long in the finishes, and very approachable."
The success of the 2010 vintage wines was clear with their reception March 2013 at the Chengdu China wine show. Our Four Sisters Ranch wine has been served at the Presidential Library, the Hyatt Hotel and now the Sheraton Universal Hotel, as well as Wolfgang Puck's Bistros and other fine hotels, Universities, restaurants and wine shops.
In 2010 the Wine Spectator Wine of the Year went to a Paso Robles Syrah blend. Our award winning premium Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah Paso wines are complimented by Cabernet and Merlot Red Hat Vineyards wines from California, at affordable prices.
For over 24 years our family has been growing grapes and producing wines in the Central Coast of California, sometimes called "Napa South." Cheers!
