Last Saturday was a busy day here at Borgo Pass Vineyard. Some of our regular u-pick customers spent the day picking the Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes. Grapes were picked into totes which can weigh up to 90 pounds when full. Each tote gets picked up by us at least three times before it is hauled away to be made into wine . Everyone was tired by the end of the day. We had literally picked up tons.
Usually we are finished with harvest by this time of year but luckily October has been a warm month. While Oregon needs rain to help with the drought situation and the fire in the Cascades, we still have Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris to be harvested.
