Late-Season Vineyard Report


The vineyard is producing a robust crop of grapes this year. All indications for an early ripening compared to last year. Many things to credit the crop production. Our spray program put our crop out front. Steady rain gave our vines plenty of water to drink. Mild temperatures not exceeding 90 celsius did not stress out the fruit. The vines in the West row’s rebounded nicely after they contacted herbicide drift. As our grapes ripen we now have to check the sugar levels. Miss Sandy checks them for brix. One day this week we must cover the rows with bird netting to protect crop from birds eating our fruit. Our friends who help harvest will be getting called soon. I say that the increased fruit volume and larger size grapes will produce more award winning wines. Cheers! To you my friends.

Regards, Randy & Sandy
