SPRING ON PRITCHARD HILL
by Jessica Johnson, Lead Tasting Room Associate
It seems as if Spring has sprung a bit early this year here on Pritchard Hill. February and March are often some of the rainiest months of the year here in the Napa Valley, however 2013 has proven to be quite the contrary. The consistently beautiful, warm sunny days we've had this season have throngs of guests from all over seeking refuge from the overwhelmingly cold and stormy weather hitting most parts of the country.
You would never know this was the "slow season" if you ventured up to Chappellet on a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon. One of the greatest advantages to having a very mild winter is we have had the opportunity to share the breathtaking views in our vineyard with each guest who makes the winding journey up to our estate.
