Falling Into Harvest

We're just one week away from Fall and harvest is already in full swing. Our Chardonnay was picked two weeks ago and is well on it's way to becoming tasty, tasty wine. Next weekend, we'll be picking our remaining grapes- Barbera, Zinfandel, and Cabernet to name a few. 

Keeping our fruit on the vines has been a bit of a challenge this year thanks to hungry birds and a black bear with a big appetite for Zinfandel. Netting has managed to ward off the flocks, but even our 8-foot fence and ranger prescribed ammonia aren't keeping Yogi out. At least it has been entertaining to watch his antics on our game cameras!
