All-Inclusive Crush Consulting Package


This popular package includes unlimited access to me via phone, text, email and Zoom to provide all necessary support for the coming vintage through December.

We start with a harvest plan in which we project harvest dates and tonnages, set our style goals, develop vinification protocols, order needed supplies, determine facility and lab capabilities in preparation. I coach vineyard monitoring and determine picking dates in coordination with team members.

Then reality hits. Generally no plan survives, so we adapt on a daily basis. Each lot is analyzed for needed adjustments of water and acidity. We track primary and secondary fermentations to completion.

Then I taste samples and prescribe oak and other cellaring, and consider blending options with a goal to have the vintage stable and buttoned up by Christmas.

On-site visits are extra, charged at $1,000 per day on site plus travel expenses.
