It’s been a few weeks since we checked in on the progress of Ernie Loosen-Jay Somers joint venture J. Christopher Wines and Appassionata Vineyards in Newberg, Oregon.
In this pic, taken by Loosen Bros. USA VP Kirk Wille, Winemaker Jay Somers’ dog, Bella, helps set the end posts for the trellis of Appassionata Block 1.
It’s part of the first vineyard plantings, and with Bella’s good help, the J. Christopher crew will start to train the plantings on trellis wires this year.
