Harvest Is Here

As in the past, the Red Hen Chardonnay was harvested first this year. These grapes arrived a about a week earlier than last year, and are picked very early in the morning - it's still pretty hot during the day, so it's important to keep the grapes cool.

Our winemaker, Alison, believes this is going to be a spectacular year across the board. I tasted the grapes on the vine about 2 weeks ago and they were delicious - sweet, full of flavor, with nice brown seeds in the middle . . . just the way you want them!

More info to come as the 2008 harvest gets into full swing . . . .
