2010 Harvest

Posted on Updated on

It was an exciting morning…September 15, 2010.  It was the day to pick my Chard and Pinot Grigio.  I woke up around 4am to get to Lodi by 0630.  Justin drove the truck and off we went.  We met the picking crew at 0630 and they began picking the Pinot Grigio first and then the Chard.  It was cold but as soon as the sun starting coming up it began to warm up.  We drove the grapes back to the winery, weighed in (no, not like Weight Watchers…geez) and began the press.  The juice was put in a settling tank and left til the next day when it was racked off the lees and placed in stainless stell drums (some lees left for stirring).  Today I added some nutrient and different yeasts to each vessel…now my fingers are crossed for a nice, cold, slow fermentation….stay tuned
