Villa del Sol Cherry uPick 2013 Los Angeles

An update from one of the cherry ranches in Leona Valley.

Hi Cherry Pickers,

Great news!  The cherries are ripe and the trees are loaded!  WE ARE NOW OPEN FOR PICKING.  We will be open every day until all of the cherries are picked.  Because we didn’t have any late freezes this year, the cherries are ripening earlier than usual.  Of course the Brooks are huge and extremely sweet.  We already have some of our Rainier trees that are perfectly ripe and also extremely large.  I took some pictures which I will be posting on the web site soon.  They look beautiful and taste even better.  This could be a short season if the weather gets hot, so don’t delay coming.

We will be open weekdays from 8am to 5pm and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 3pm.  Remember to wear close toed comfortable shoes.  The temperature was perfect for picking today–warm but not too hot.

We would love for you to visit the orchard any day but remember, weekdays are great because they are less crowded.  Since we do have about 3600 trees on 25 acres, there is always plenty of room for you any time you come!

As always, we have lots of raw, local honey at the cherry stand.  We are happy to accept all credit cards as well as cash.  If you are not sure about our days and hours, call our Cherry Hotline for information at 661 270-1356.

This is going to be a great season and we hope to see all of you at the orchard.  We are especially excited about seeing those of you who have come to visit us year after year.  Let the excitement begin!  See you at the Farm.

Well, surprise surprise!  Looks like the cherries will be ready for picking beginning Saturday – June 1st, so we will be open from 8am to 5pm from that day forward…until all the cherries are gone.  We hope they will last through two more weekends, but keep checking back.

Please be advised that on Saturday (06/01/2013) there is a Cherry Parade and Festival in Leona Valley.  The main road, “Elizabeth Lake Road,” will be closed from 9:15 to approximately 11:30. So come before and plan to stay and watch the parade, or come after noon.

Varieties – Lots of Bing, Utah Giants and some Rainiers will be ripe!  We lost a lot of our Tieton cherries in a frost this year, so we will have few to pick and they should be picked out by Sunday.

Our pricing is the same as last year – $4.25/lb for all of our Certified Organic varieties.

We are excited and can’t wait to see you all!  The cherries are yummy!

How do Chinese Vintages Compare to European Ones?

How do Chinese Vintages Compare to European Ones?

The popularity of Chinese wines has been increasing over the past few years, with China now representing one of the biggest import markets in the world – most of this activity is focused around Hong Kong, where fine wine and vintage collecting attracts high bidding wars. In terms of the production of Chinese vintages, the wines exported from China are an unusual blend of traditional European grapes and more distinctive flavours, and both overlap and diverge from European vintages.

The quality of European wines is typically down to the traditional methods of winemakers, and to the specific tastes and grapes of regions – Champagne or Burgundy in France have well established vineyards that maintain strict rules over wine production. Red wine produced in Europe generally tends to be higher in tannins, and more earthy than wines produced in ‘New World’ wine regions such as Australia, South Africa, and China.

New World wines have historically depended on adapting European grapes and viticulture techniques to their particular climates and growing seasons; there are noticeable differences in terms of aroma and taste between, say, a Cabernet Sauvignon from France, and one produced in Australia. The same is true of China, where the market has traditionally imported European trends and made them unique to its territories.

Good wine in the Chinese market is dependent on the climate and the extent to which modern wine making techniques have been in place – wines made in China’s Shaanxi Province tend to be of high quality, producing Niya branded wines and versions of Cabernet Sauvignon. At the same time, vintages such as Grace Vineyard Deep Blue incorporate traditional grape and fermenting techniques into high yield cultivation.

China tends to focus on high quantity yields, resulting in a lot of mid range priced wines for exporting – this approach grants China an advantage over the emphasis on quality taken by European vintages. However, China is producing more premium brands, which include Zhangyu and Great Wall, both of which are now beginning to compete with the thriving Chinese import market for European and other international wines.

One of the key differences between Chinese and European vintages, then, is the sheer quantity of production possible in mainland China, and the range of different methods. For example, Chateau Hansen, a vineyard that borders the Gobi Desert, has been able to use the low temperatures and arid conditions of the region to export premium wines such as Cotes du Flauve Jaune du Desert de Gobi – these wines provide a Chinese specific variation on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Gernischt, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot processes and grapes, with spicier and more peppery tastes added to vintages.

In this context, Chinese wines are often distinguished by their slight variation from established European wine vintages; the strength of China’s fine wine importing market means that supply and demand within the country is often weighed towards reproducing and mass producing the kinds of popular vintages available to collectors; still, though, wine remains much more of a luxury item in China than Europe, and still depends on European methods for its identity.
