The biggest take away from this year’s trip to California is that there is no longer a normal. What was once expected or anticipated no longer applies. The very long heat wave of the summer has passed and the temperatures are below normal, this has slowed the sugar development in the grapes and delayed the harvest by about two weeks. This is good news, in that the flavor of the grapes is going to be over the top! The cooler days and even cooler nights, while slowing the increase in sugar it is allowing for extra hang time for the taste, this year’s wines will be the most complex and interesting in years.
We have selected some great grapes again this year and are sure that you won’t be disappointed. We are excited for the season to get started. Stop by our showroom in Plainville and take a stroll through the cooler and see the best grapes in the area. We will once again increase our quantity of Black Muscat to keep up with the ever-growing demand for this candy like grape.
The juices have begun to arrive and the first load of grapes will be here soon. We anticipate having all varieties of grapes available in mid-September. Call ahead to check availability and to place your order.
