Harvest is over

Well we picked our grapes last weekend. The timing was perfect. Weather was cool and misty. We had a little hot weather a week before, and it rained a few days later, so it worked out. Everything was right. We picked lots of good Chardonnay fruit and plenty of Cabernet grapes as well. We crushed and are in the process of barreling the grapes. It may be a great vintage.
We had many friends come to help us. The army of pickers worked hard and are much appreciated! We enjoyed some chili and wine of course for a late lunch after the work was done.
Thanks to all.
