Vineyard owners Andy and Elizabeth Standeven, also home winemakers and SHW members, are strong supporters of home winemakers.  As with last year, Beginning Winemakers Varietal Focus Group will be making Shaker Ridge’s primitivo.  Another 2014 varietal focus group will be making port with five Portuguese varietals from the vineyard’s “Quinta” acreage.

For this upcoming harvest, Shaker Ridge has small quantities of barbera, primitivo and touriga nacional still available.  For real-time availability, click on this link and find the latest “Current Grape Availability” post on the right side of the page.
