The Region

Dry Creek Valley is a premium winegrowing region in northern Sonoma County, California. World renowned for its Zinfandel, blocks of old-vines mark the area, many having survived prohibition when many vines were removed. You won’t find any traffic lights in Dry Creek Valley, but you will find fertile soil and ideal growing conditions.

Food Pairing

Keep it casual with gourmet burgers topped with roasted tomatoes, red peppers and caramelized onions or take it up a notch with well-marbled grilled rib steak and sauteed mushrooms.

Just started kit

Everything looks pretty good so far, but the instructions were not specific to this particular kit. Close but there are a couple of items that were not exact for this kit. For instance, instructions mention oak cubes. There are no oak cubes as the oak is all chips. And you have to read the "fine" print on the back of the bourbon barrel chips to see that you hold one bag back for another step..
Have great hopes for this kit. Also, it tells you to use a 4 cup container for the grape skins - I pulled out my 8 cup container and was glad I did - 4 cup would have overflowed!

In order to obtain optimal bourbon character in the finished wine, the Eclipse Bourbon Barrel limited release follows a unique oaking process which deviates slightly from our standard instructions. The kit includes three packets of oak chips: • 2 packets of Bourbon Oak chips • 1 packet of Med-Heavy oak chips Step 1.6 PRIMARY FERMENTATION: • Add 1 packet of Bourbon Oak chips & the Med-Heavy oak packet. Step 3.3 CLEARING: • Add the 2nd packet of Bourbon Oak chips.
