Only a few cases remain…BUT GOING FAST.
2013 Harvest Completed…
The 2013 vintage is in the barrell. We were anticipating another vintage similar to that of 2012…until the rains came just as harvest would have begun. This will again be another vintage not to be missed.
After a warm dry summer, fall rains came fiercely and just would not let up. Time for harvest and we’re struggling to harvest some of the precious grapes. Full harvesting resumes as weather breaks for a few days beginning October 3. This may be a challenging year for winemakers.
Harvest was not what we had hoped for. Rain, very hard rain and wind, which lasted for several days were not what the grapes needed. Production this year will be much less than in past years. Oh, and did we mention the birds. The wind and rain did not deter them — they had a feast, much to our dismay.
