Harvest 2022 – July

This summer has been tough for everything, except for the vines! This dry weather is ideal for growing grapes. The lack of rain reduced the disease pressure and allowed for a very controlled amount of water to reach the berries. We were able to keep the fruit on the vines longer, creating a higher concentration of sugars. That means deeper flavors, more body and higher alcohol content. We harvested about 2250 lbs. at a 26 brix. Very exciting and going to be the BEST wine!

Thank you to all the volunteers that braved the 100 degree weather, wasps and ants, and a very early morning! Without you we would probably still be picking!
