Autumn In The Vineyard

 

Ripening and Waiting

As the Summer season transitions to Fall, the vines move their focus from active growth toward maturity.  The grapes plump up to full size, start to gain color, and begin to accumulate sugar and flavor.  Their texture begins to soften.  As we near Harvest, we will wait for the perfect balance of sugar, acid, pH, and most importantly flavor.

Harvest

Our harvest carries out the adage that our wines are "hand made".  Too steep for tractors, the fruit is picked in 35 pound boxes and carried off the hillside on a small ATV trailer, nine or ten boxes at a time.  From there it is loaded into 1/2 ton Macro bins on a truck and then moved to the winery.
