Busy around the winery

Harvest is upon us. I wanted to run around and take pictures of grapes like these Viognier. But the day got away from me. Where did it go? I did get the pony-tail crew to the four-wheelers and the fields. At least the ones still young enough that I drive around, and...

Fine ‘n Dandy

Our label has been months and months in the making. But now we are ready to share it with you. Rebecca Ritz, the owner of Bauerhaus Design an online branding firm, helped design our logo and label design.   So what do you think? We are really enjoying it...

More work at the winery

The big door is now in! Finishing touches are going on right now as we get ready to bottle towards the end of this week. And yes, the cooling system is installed. Lights are installed. Well, it looks like they were finishing up putting the lights in. So that’s...

Work at the Winery and in the Vineyards

So much work is going on here at the winery that I am running about two weeks behind keeping you up-to-date on how progress is going. We have had our ups … and downs. Maybe a little more “up” then Cliff would like. Remember he was way up there while...

News for the New Year 2015

I bet that some of you have wondered where have the Binghams been! Well as Cliff likes to say, “We work hard, and we play hard.” At times it seems like we mostly work, but sometimes even the weather encourages play time. In January, we couldn’t pass...

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas, Hanukkah Sameach, Happy Holidays, and peace on earth from all of our crew (who are currently out harvesting cotton) to your crew (hopefully enjoying their holiday break 🙂 ) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ...

The vineyards are greening up after the much needed rains

Rain! We actually got some rain. We have received 3 to 4 inches of rain in 4 days. We are thankful to God for these much needed rains. Cliff was saying that it might actually be nice if it would not rain for a couple of weeks. Of course by then, we will be praying for...

Hail Update for the Vineyards

Yes, I said hail, not freeze. We seem to be so preoccupied with late spring freezes that we forget about the other hazards of growing grapes on the High Plains. Hail being one of them. During the last rain which we had on Sunday morning on the 25th, we had hail some...

Vineyards after the April freeze

These photos are a little late, but I thought I would still share them with you. These are our vineyards on May 12th. The vineyards were recovering from a freeze that occurred on April 15th, but were recovering well.   The leaves were a little damaged, but the...

New grape plantings and April freeze report

This dried tendril has nothing to do with new plantings or freeze damage, but I thought that it was rather beautiful and encouraging. Back to the thoughts at hand. This spring we planted 20 acres of Tempranillo and 10 acres of Trebbiano on the 24th and 25th of March....
