Rain Event and Harvest Status

Just a quick update on harvest, we had a brief but concerning rain event on Saturday. While we didn’t get much accumulation, it was quite warm and humid, and if not for the warm, breezy afternoon, would certainly have posed some problems in the vineyards. The weather this week looks good, though there is the chance of another small precipitation event this weekend, which could be problematic if it materialized.

We are currently finishing the Duckhorn SB and moving into the Chardonnay. Also, we have brought in some of the early Napa Valley reds like Three Palms for both Duckhorn Vineyards and Paraduxx.  Incredibly, we are already more than 50% complete with the harvest in the Anderson Valley, a record early year. On the Sonoma Side, Migration has done a good chunk of its Pinot Noir, but is just starting to bring in Chardonnay. Decoy is in the middle of Sauvignon blanc, Pinot, Chardonnay, and some of the later ripening reds are beginning to trickle in. It has been a great start to harvest, but there is still a long ways to go.
