2016 Harvest Update
What wonderful weather to enjoy this time of year. The afternoons are about mid 70”s and the evenings drop to about mid 50”s. This is great for sitting on the porch and having a glass of wine but not doing much for our grapes. The cooler weather has slowed the ripening process. That’s good for a longer hang time, richer and more intense flavor development but moves the potential harvest date out two to three weeks. We generally pick between 24.5 – 26 brix sugars. We are currently at 10.7 brix sugar and will look for a late September early October harvest. More to come as we get closer.
