This past weekend marked the begiining of our harvest. Because of the numerous hurricanes including Harvey, Irma and Jusn, we decided to pick safe rather than wait and be sorry. It eas a beautiful day and we enjoyed the help of 35 volunteers who made short work of the grapes and then relaxed and ate some delicious meatballs and tortelini in homemade pasta sauce with concord grape juice.
We plan to take a short break and resume with our Chardonnay grapes in 2 weeks. The schedule may change based on weather, but it looks like this....
Chardonnay on Sat., Sept. 23, 9:00 AM
Vidal Blanc Sat., Oct. 7 9:00 AM
Cab Franc Sat., Oct. 14 and Sun. Oct. 15 9:00 AM
Chambourcin Sat., Oct. 21 9:00 AM
