As I mentioned before, the February freeze has greatly reduced the amount of chardonnay grapes (Night Flight) and sangiovese (Rootin’ Tootin’). There will not be any public harvests for those grapes as there are not enough to pick.
The good news? The cabernet sauvignon (which is used in Diamond Back) is extra happy this year! It is a little too early to guess exactly when it will be ready, but most likely we will pick it during a Saturday in August. PROBABLY August 21st? Check back here in August and see which Saturday it will be.
Scheduling harvest is a very tough decision and there is much thought that goes into it. I wrote a blog post here about it.
