Blue Mountain Vineyards wraps up summer with festivals, Sangria Sundays and farmers markets

News from the vineyard

August is a very busy month in the vineyard. We have been hard at work spraying, tying and leaf pulling the vines. Also, due to the loss of crop the last three years we have decided to net our vines. It is a huge expense and a tremendous amount of labor, but it will make a huge difference in our yield, especially in the red grapes. The birds won't be happy but we will. Of course, we can not afford to net the entire 50 acres, so they may get some. Hopefully they don't develop a taste for white grapes!
