Harvest Update – Mostly Photos

Vineyard #2, the day after picking Cab Sauv

Today (Oct 20th) finds us with a mere 10-15 tons of fruit still hanging on the vines – specifically two blocks of Cab Franc, and one of Petit Verdot.  All our whites, Merlot, Cab Sauv, and most of our Cab Franc and others are in and fermenting, or already barreled down for the winter.  We’ve processed roughly 70 tons so far.


A pro

 Despite the rains, many of our vineyards have hung in there for quite a long season, and we’ve had some great fruit enter the winery.  Much of the wine we’ve already fermented is showing great promise, and I’m excited for what we’re bringing in this week, and the next.  We still have a few weeks of fermenting and pressing, so things aren’t over yet.

Can you crack the code?
