SCHAAD VINEYARDS

Providing Oregon grapes to home Wine Makers of the Puget Sound Basin since 1981

Here are the sugar numbers recorded on the 30th of August (lowest to highest)

Riesling:  11.4

Chardonnay:  12.8

Pinot Munier 14.6

Pinot Gris:  15.0

Muller Thurgeau:  15.0

Gewurztramier:  15.6

Pinot Noir: 16.2

Moore Mystery Grape:  21.6

Leon Millot:  21.6

Marechal Foch:  22.0

Assuming an open September, I’m thinking first deliveries will occur on the 28th of September.  While the sugars are higher than normative, an extra week of hang-time should benefit the complexity of each. 

From September 6th through the 13th, I will be off-the-grid and without connectivity.  Though your E-mail will arrive, be patient for a response.

Bonus points accrue to each of you that can correctly identify each of the varietals in the pictures that follow.  All deliveries will occur at my home in Seattle (5020 38th Ave NE).

Contact/confirmation information via E-mail at dcschaad@comcast.net or via phone at 206-522-7491. Cell phone available upon request.

Use of my stemmer-crusher and/or presses will add a charge of $.05 / pound to the total invoice..
