We had the 2021 harvest set into our GPS with Harvest of 2020 in our rearview mirror. The road to our destination was long and dusty but when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. An abundance of fruit hanging on the a green canopy with leaves that were just starting to yellow.
The grape clusters were loose and stems were lignified when our crew came through on the moonlit nights to pick the fruit. Then at first light our de-stemmers roared to life to prepare our grapes for their transition to premium Mount Veeder Yates Family Vineyard Wine. We can't wait to see how these wines develop in the winery.
