Fall 2015

Welcome to our 2015 4th Quarter Wine Club!!!

As we are winding our way through another highly successful vintage, we’d like to give everyone an update on our organic vineyards and winery.

We have already picked our mountain grown Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Merlot and one block of gorgeous, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon as of today – 25 September 2015. Easily our earliest harvest in 20 years, we are amazed at the quality of what has been rolling off our incredible vineyard.

With over 100 acres planted to 9 varieties, Heller Estate is the largest grape grower in the Cachagua Valley. Thanks to the Heller family, we have been cultivating these organic grapes since 1993 with the intent to minimally impact our natural surroundings, ecosystem and community.

The results are healthy, phenomenal wines.

It’s easy to taste the difference in our organically crafted offerings. With no residual pesticide or herbicide compounds lingering in our beautiful wines, only the true essence of our grapes come shining through. Pure, bright fruit aromas and complex flavors are accentuated due to our commitment to farming cleanly.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say. Take a look and test drive the wine club offerings of this quarter. I feel that you will understand exactly what I am attempting to explain.

This quarter will find you sipping a new, limited release 2012 Pinot Noir, an exclusive 2011 Boronda Blend Bordeaux (only available to wine club members), our new release 2013 Chardonnay and – our star varietal – 2012 Chenin Blanc.

Signature Club members will be receiving some elegant wines that epitomize the quality of fruit we grow and process deep in the Cachagua Valley including two new releases – 2012 Pinot Noir and 2012 Petite Sirah as well as our lovely and elegant 2012 Petit Verdot and 2011 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

What sets us apart and drives our commitment to making wines that “Dance on your Palate” continually, every single vintage, is your support. Choosing to be wine club members, here at Heller, when there is a sea of other choices available indicates support not only for our limited, hand-crafted wines but –perhaps, more importantly – organic farming. We deeply appreciate each and every one of our members and hope that we continue to impress and satisfy your wine drinking needs.

Cheers and all the best from the Winery and Vineyard Staff.
