I know, I know, it sounds crazy. 6 weeks ’til Harvest? No way!!!
But, you saw that post a couple days ago, didn’t you? The V Monologues?
Well, I heard none other than David Gates himself say, this morning in the Monday Morning Meeting, that historically, harvest begins 6 weeks after veraison.
Now, all that said, it’s actually been a pretty quiet week for our vines.
Here at Monte Bello, we’re just sittin’ pretty …
And at Lytton Springs? Well, sittin’ pretty!
So, what do you think? Perhaps it’s time we start the #Harvest2013 pool? Which vineyard (Geyserville, Monte Bello, Dusi Ranch, etc.), and what date? When do YOU think #Harvest2013 will start?
Or better yet, maybe a pool on our #VineWatch13 vines? That’s be dy-no-mite! How about a contest to see who can guess the date each of these vines gets harvested?
Man, if you got THAT right …
Please stay tuned as we follow our lovely vines through the 2013 vintage!
We’re twenty-six weeks in to-date, and for a quick look back, please enjoy the links below:
