The Growing Cycle: September

It has been a busy month in the vineyard. We typically don’t start harvest until late September or early October, but this year we are going to be finishing up with the last of our Merlot on October 1st! I arrived in Paso just hours before a crew showed up to start harvesting Merlot, including the vine I have been following all year.

Another growing season coming to an end. We are looking forward to cooler temperatures and working on various vineyard improvements before next Spring!
