Why a summer barrel tasting? Aren't most held in the spring?

The majority of our wineries produce high-end Pinot Noir, and Pinot really tastes best right before bottling time. By holding a barrel tasting in the summer, attendees will be able to evaluate the wines in a nearly finished state, instead of young wines that will change dramatically during the aging process. 

So when you buy futures, you know exactly what you'll be receiving the next year!
