Preparing for Harvest

Pinot againWe took over management of the vineyard immediately and started dropping some fruit and cleaning up the canopy. Quality of the grapes were more important than the quantity. We felt it looked very good and were gearing up for the harvest.

I made an agreement that Lake Breeze Vineyard would purchase the majority of Pinot Gris.

Arnie Erickson had some people that had previously picked the Merlot and I decided to let them take most of the Merlot this year also.

The Pinot Noir was maturing nicely in October and early November and the Brix levels were rising in a slow, controlled way that we were very pleased with.
