FROM THE VINEYARD
We started our harvest on August 23 with Cayuga and Pinot Noir for our sparkling wines Blanc de Blanc and Brut Rose. This was the earliest that we have ever started harvesting since we started in 1993.
The grapes are looking beautiful. The forecast is hot and dry. We are continuing our harvest this week with Chardonnay and Cayuga and will continue next week with Pinot Noir. The sugar levels are going to be very high this year resulting in wines with more body and warmth than normal. I anticipate the reds could be spectacular with intense color and flavor.
