Harvest Update: Merlot Starts To Arrive

Harvest 9-22_Fog Knights Valley

We’re several weeks into Harvest now and the grapes look beautiful. Going from vineyard to vineyard, tasting grapes, calling picks and watching our teams come together always reminds me why this is my favorite time of the year.

Sauvignon Blanc started coming in a couple of weeks ago, and now we’re onto Merlot. I’ve been all over Sonoma County checking on the grapes, and I’m really excited about how this vintage is starting to shape up. I’ll talk more about that later, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos with you from the past week or so.

This Merlot is Jackson Park will ripen late and be among the last picked.
