Harvest 2014 Update #6

August 21, 2014

“This week we began our harvest with Oakville sauvignon blanc. We are slightly ahead of where we were last year at this time and about 10 days ahead of average, if there is such a thing in farming. Other varieties are starting to sweeten up as well. Sauvignon blanc is typically the first still wine variety off the vine, but I have heard reports of some Oakville ranches picking their earliest merlot this week as well.”

— Molly Hodgins, Flora Springs Viticulturist
