Harvest Season is Underway
Harvest days begin with coffee and doughnuts. Nothing but good ol’ caffeine and sugar to get the body going! We start at dawn, just as the soft light begins to peak through the vines. We hand pick every single grape cluster in the vineyard.
Buckets of grapes are then taking to the crusher/destemmer. This machine removes the grapes from their stems and also crushes the grapes a little.
For the white wines, we will press the juice from the grapes the same day they are picked. Red grape juice will sit on the skins and seeds to soak in extra tannins and flavors.
After that there’s nothing to do but sit back and enjoy a nice glass of wine to admire all your hard work.
