The 2017 Harvest has Started!

2017 Harvest Syarh

The winery is filling up with beautiful fragrances and aromas from the active fermentations. We started the 2017 wine grape harvest on August 17th with delicious Verdelho from the infamous Silvaspoons vineyard.

Harvest 2017 Verdelho

The harvest seems to be 1–2 weeks later than the previous few years but more normal to the average over time. The quality and quantity of fruit seems to be perfect and I'm looking forward to the finished results already. As the harvest heats up in September and early October, you'll likely see me at the winery on the weekends during tasting room hours tending to the fermentations. If you see me around don't hesitate to ask questions, but beware, I might put you to work!

New Releases

Our new releases are the 2016 Chardonnay, 2015 Verdelho, 2012 Touriga, Lodi and the 2013 Petite Sirah. Like the 2015 vintage, the new Chardonnay came from Del Arroyo Vineyards. We produce our Chardonnays using a partial malo-lactic fermentation, so they are more crisp than some. The 2013 Petite Sirah is a big wine with deep color and firm tannins, and it is loaded with flavor. The Touriga is a blend of roughly equal amounts of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional


At the prestigious Orange County Fair, we won 5 Gold Medals and 4 Silver Medals. Our 5 Gold Medals were more than the total of those won by all other Livermore Valley Wineries! Gold Medal winners were: 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Touriga, 2013 Petite Sirah, 2012 Conjugation, and 2013 Infrared. Silver Medal winners were: 2015 Semillon, 2015 Chardonnay, 2011 Merlot, and the 2014 Mourvedre



This weekend we support our community. Today is our turn to help our fellow wineries in Napa, Sonoma and Mendicono during these horrible times. As such, Fenestra Winery will be donating 10% of our profits from wine sales in the tasting room for this weekend, October 14 & 15.
