The winery has finally found its rhythm and the weather has improved. Over the last week, we harvested the second batch of Syrah and all of the Grenache from Lightner. After a 2 day cold soak, we moved these to the winery and they have started to ferment. The whole cluster puncheon seems to be the slowest moving of them - it didn't soak up as high in Brix as the others.
With the weather finally working for us, we will harvest Fenaughty Syrah and Grenache Gris this week and then probably have a final push the last two weeks of August. If you are in the bay area and want to help, we need sorters on Saturday.
