Harvest 2015 Update #8

“Things in Oakville are busy, busy, busy. Weather like this (HOT) limits hang time. Grape sugar levels can get out of hand, and even well-irrigated fruit starts to shrivel. Stacy Vogel of Miner Family will start bringing in Oakville cabernet sauvignon this week, with an eye towards finishing harvest in the next couple weeks. Garrett Buckland of Premiere Viticultural Services says that Accendo Cellars in Oakville is also starting their cabernet harvest this week, along with many of their neighbors. Of course, the merlot harvest is well underway throughout Oakville. At Flora Springs, we hope to start and finish picking our Oakville merlot this week.”
