Mike Crumly and Bob Iantosca discuss Gloria Ferrer's night harvest process, including the benefits of harvesting at night in our Sonoma Carneros vineyards. Harvest our Pinot Noir grapes at night aid in the quality of the wines. Harvesting at night also provides cooler working environments for our workers and reduces the impact on the environment.

As the first sparkling wine house in California's renowned Carneros region, Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards was established in 1986. Gloria Ferrer embodies Spanish winegrowing history, time-honored tradition, and centuries-old winemaking practices in creating exceptional sparkling and estate varietal wines blended to pair perfectly with food.
Gloria Ferrer Winery's 2010 Sonoma vineyard harvest is reviewed by Bob Iantosca and Mike Crumly. Harvest in our Sonoma Carneros vineyards was completed in September. Despite a difficult growing season, the abundant sunshine and cool weather developed strong, mature flavors in our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
In 2011, we celebrated our 25th Anniversary at the festival. The Catalan Festival at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards pairs the unique spirit of Catalonia with the world-class quality of California sparkling and still wines. A celebration of the winery’s Spanish roots and the opening of the winery in July 1986, the Catalan Festival is now in its 19th year.
Gloria Ferrer's annual Catalan Festival is all about good food, wine and fun, of course, with a Catalan accent. Spain used to be a cluster of different kingdoms - Aragon and Catalonia, Valencia, Castilla - each with its own language, culture, heritage and royal family. Eventually, by marriage or conquest, it all became one country. In the northeast of Spain, Catalonia has kind of an urban, yet Mediterranean feel to it.
