What Makes A Successful Harvest?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Living in the "vine country" has its rewards.

Our landscape is scattered with vineyards and our climate is perfect for growing 
world-class wine-grapes.
 
In the next few months we will begin our harvest,
“Crush 2020.” 

Two months of controlled mayhem, 
that brings our industry together
as well as, an end to another great season!

 

 


Even though we work very hard
during this time of year;
it’s a great time to reconnect with nature 
and those who are part of our wine community.


Wine makersviticulturist 
and wine enthusiast that make Sonoma
a great place to live, work and partake in some of the world's greatest wines!



 



Weather is the most important ingredient
for a successful harvest.

Mild temperatures, 
allow the matured grapes more
hang-time; giving them a few extra days,
to soak up more flavor, that will be enjoyed for many years to come. 

A successful harvest is also created by
all the many individuals, who work in the industry.


“Crush” is when we all come together
as a community, to work toward a common goal... ...a great harvest!

Teamwork is crucial to our success.


 

Sonoma, is also fortunate
to have an extended arid season,
during the September and October harvest. 


 

This is a crucial time for the maturing grapes
 as well, the extended hang-time, 
which allows key components to mature,
which add unique flavors to the wine-grape.



Most of our wine is hand-picked, 
which is extremely labor intensive.
 
This makes it especially mind blowing,
when you see a truck leaving a vineyard,
loaded with 20 tons of hand-picked grapes, 
heading to the winery!

 

In the next few weeks, we will be arming 
our vineyards with Mylar tape.
 
The shiny metallic ribbons are a necessity,
to scare off birds.

The small breezes in the vineyard,
along with the ultraviolet light,
will cause the tape to glimmer
and hopefully, keep the birds away!


 
Made from an iridescent red and silver,
Mylar Film, or Flash Tape
is specially designed
to reflect sunlight and crackle in the wind, 
creating a visual and
auditory distraction zone.


 


There are many predators during harvest time.
Wild turkeys and boar, deer, birds, yellowjackets and a variety of other varmints, that look forward to snacking on our ripened grapes.

Even though we can protect our crops with fencing and other deterrents;
giving a little back to nature, does still occur.

That is another great thing about Sonoma...
...sharing the wealth!
