Mark mentioned that there is starting to be some color change in the grapes especially the Pinot Meunier. The grapes have loved this hot weather, but it seems that the fall really has the final say when it comes to the ripening of the grapes. In the past, harvest has not started until the end of September, but the last couple of seasons we have started in mid September
Mark and the crew do their best to tend the grapes so we have a high quality wine grape. In the end, we just wait and see what Mother Nature offers us. Each fall we are reminded that control is an illusion and to live in the moment.
