After working all year, it seems unbelievable that in a few short weeks the grapes will be gone for another year!
A bit sad? Yes – we have to wait a whole year to have acres of grapes to eat!
But, the thrill of harvest – and money in the bank – outweigh the sadness!
Our earliest ripening variety is Roussanne. To see how we determine ripeness see pH and Brix Testing. Roussanne is a French white grape variety. We have 7.2 acres of Roussanne which is contracted to 7 different wineries. Each winery has a specific acre of grapes which is 3 rows that are 1/3 mile each. And, yes, that is a looong row when you are out there working!
