The Vineyards

Early winter showers, with a good amount of rain, were followed by a, dry spring. Alternating overcast days and heat waves continued through spring and summer, with a warm July and August. Overcast days in mid to late August kept the mornings cool, preserving acidity, and warm daytime temperatures led to perfectly ripe fruit. We harvested the fruit from August 29 through October 8.
