Where has the time gone? We are excited for 2018 and want to update you on everything Grove 45!
2017 was a healthy and productive year. After abundant winter rains, the spring/summer growing season was long with only a couple of severe heat spikes. Our harvest came a few weeks later than in previous years, beginning the second week in November. Following four days of harvesting and milling, the oil came back to the barn where it rested until the first week of January. Another five days of bottling and then back to the barn where we hand applied our distinctive pewter labels.
We were fortunate again this year to have the help of Nena’s daughter, Adrian, as well as our dear friend, Mary. Everyone worked hard preparing countless cardboard cases while we applied labels.
Grove 45 was a proud sponsor of and participant in the 2017 Campo Velo, Napa Valley’s Premier Grand Fondo. The proceeds from this fun weekend will be donated to support; Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry, Napa Bicycle Coalition, Napa Valley Vine Train and World Bicycle Relief. We are honored to be participating once again this year, April 27-30. Go to www.campovelo.com for information and registration for this very worthwhile event. We would love to see you there.
