Out with the old, in with the new!
This Week on the Peak:
Out with the old, in with the new at Mission Peak Wine!
As 2017 has come to an end, 2018 is looking very promising for Mission Peak Wine. A few updates include: a brand new website, social media accounts, and a deer fence to complete a full perimeter around the vineyard. We’ve also switched to a new management team to help with upkeep and harvest the vineyard, and also decided to use a local winemaker.
The team at Mission Peak Wine outsourced their website layout to a very talented local designer in the San Francisco area. If our viewers have any suggestions regarding the site, please message us on our contact page. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We LOVE feedback!

Deer fences are important to vineyards as deer LOVE to munch on grapes. 2017 was a great year for the Mission Peak deer population, which correlates to severe deer damage to our grapes. Going forward into 2018, Mission Peak Wine’s new management team has decided to add an additional deer fence. This will help minimize potential damage caused to the fruit by deer. We are hoping this helps get Mission Peak Wine’s yield back up to its full 7.5 acre production, specifically focusing on our damaged Pinot Noir vines.
In order to keep Mission Peak Wine running at its full potential, the team has decided to explore a new management company located in Livermore, CA. This new company has great ideas on how to continue to make Mission Peak Wine as delicious as possible.
As the management team changed at Mission Peak Wine, the wine maker has also changed. We are now partnering with Page Mill Winery in Livermore, CA, to turn Mission Peak Wine into a delicious light red blend made out of our Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Due to the extensive deer damage in 2017, we were not able to harvest our Pinot Noir grapes as these seemed to be the deers favorite. Our first tasting of the new blend will be later this year.
