Happy New Year, Copia Family!
2022, where did you go!? As we turn the corner and welcome 2023, we think of all that happened in the last year. Starting with a promising growing season and ending with a fast and furious harvest, 2022 was remarkable in its peaks and valleys. The ebb and flow of every year always seems dramatic at its close. With that said, 2022 was truly an incomparable year for all of us at Copia Vineyards! Read on for a few of the highlights and be sure to catch our January blog post: Copia's Love Affair with Cheese.
Club Party + Pre-release of 2020s
Do we love a good party or what?
We enjoyed every minute of getting to meet our members, host an afternoon filled with great food and music all while previewing the 2020 wines.
Each wine was paired with delectable creations from local Chef Alex Martin, followed by a whole roasted suckling pig and a selection of favorites from Jeffry’s Wine Country BBQ.
We met many members in person for the first time and jammed poolside with amazing tunes by The Vibesetters!
This year's releases came with Copia’s highest ratings to date! Copia released 9 new wines and received beautiful scores for all of them, topping out with 96 pts for the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2019 The Pursuit - Bien Nacido Vineyard. The current vintage also received three Cellar Selection designations from Wine Enthusiast.
We’re proud to share these wines with you and enjoy your impressions as they continue to age in bottle.
Harvest 2022: Fast and Furious
What do you do when:
- 75% of harvest happens in September (a FIRST for many),
- You’re setting up a new crush line at the height of harvest and your cluster conveyor sends grapes flying everywhere, and
- Your hoses are just a little too short and your days are just a little too long?
SMILE AND LAUGH THROUGH IT ALL.
Because, hey, it’s harvest. And harvest is fun.
Hosting You + A Growing Team
We welcomed a record number of guests to experience Copia’s hospitality in the tasting room and at our vineyard guest house. We are already booking up for the first half of 2023 and are excited to keep sharing the Copia story with you.
Our team has grown to include a couple more team members (hats and glasses encouraged, but optional). We share the language of hospitality and are all delighted to offer even more unique tasting experiences and events starting this Spring. Stay tuned!
