Harvest 2011 – Week 11 – The Grape Landslide…

Right now, things are crazy! People are rushing to pick fruit.  We’re working 24/7 to get all the fruit in and we’re running out of tank space.  I haven’t really had time to put all my thoughts from this week into words because I’ve been frantically trying to make the best wine we possibly can this year.  Expectations are high while reality is only moderate right now.  Like I’ve been saying all along this will NOT be a big, ripe, high alcohol year regardless of the craziness that people throw at the fruit.  The vintage is what it is and what it is may surprise people in the long run.  In the meantime, I’m just trying to stay sane…

Only 1 more week of fruit (I hope!)

Back to the grind…
