Comments: The Mount Diablo area has a long history of grape growing, with vineyards comprising approximately one third of the area’s agriculture in the early 20th century. But with the onset of prohibition in the 1920s, orchards of walnuts and almonds replaced this profitable grape crop. Shadowbrook Winery, Walnut Creek’s first winery since prohibition, grows their grapes in the foothills of Mount Diablo and meticulously produces premium wines for discerning wine connoisseurs returning Walnut Creek to its roots as the preeminent wine producer. Tim Jochner serves as Wine Master and Proprietor at Shadowbrook Winery. Tim oversees all facets of the process starting in the vineyard with watering, pruning, spraying and calling the pick. Once picked, Tim determines the sort amount, yeast strain, nutrient level and maceration time. After fermentation, Tim chooses the barrel type, time in the barrel and when to bottle.
