Our First Harvest at Trout Gulch
A storm is coming. Should we pick—should we wait? Is the fruit as ripe as it can be? The fruit doesn’t melt in the rain does it? All these questions run through your mind. We decided to pick what we could before the storm—52 bins in two days. The Pinot Noir from this harvest is gorgeous! Plump fruit at just the right levels of ripeness. The Chardonnay is sweet and crisp. We guess there are another 16 bins worth of fruit on the vine that will ride out this weekend’s storm. We are assured that the vines are super healthy and will do just fine. We will harvest the remaining fruit once the rains pass and the fruit has a chance to warm up by the sun. According to Mr. Weatherman there are still warm days ahead. Can’t wait to taste the results!
What an experience!
