September 5th, 2017: First Day of Harvest!
These photos were taken by Melanie at Cold Springs Vineyard TODAY where she and our cellar crew are busy picking the first of our Chardonnay grapes for the 2017 harvest.
You can see the smoke in the air due to the many fires burning in the Pacific Northwest. While it doesn’t make for a very picturesque photo, the smoke will not have any effect on the flavor of the wine.
Rest assured, we will be filling up MANY of these buckets with ripe fruit- guess how many buckets it takes to fill one 1-ton bin?
