VINTAGE 2014 is a multimedia documentary project, that Carr Winery had the privilege of being part of, that lets wine lovers experience the journey of a vintage in real time, from bud break to barreling.
Warm weather in 2014 brought early bud break over most of Santa Barbara County, and, along with it, the risk of severe frost. It only takes 15 minutes of below freezing temperatures to wipe out an entire crop, so wine farmers have a lot of sleepless nights this time of year.
