Oregon Wine Harvest
 
It rained last night, but while tripping around the Yamhill County
wineries last weekend, the general word was that the harvesting has been
completed. The warmth of September caused everything to ripen at once, and
this was the shortest harvest on record. It also caused a higher than
normal loss to evaporation (about 10% this year.) The nights stayed cool,
so the acid is right up there, and I am looking forward to some nice wines
from the 2003 harvest.

Any other words from the harvests around the world??

I am told that harvest in Paso Robles started around 9/15 for varietals
like viognier and grenache blanc. I don't know about the reds, but I am
supposed to work in the harvest this coming weekend, so I guess that I'll
soon know. Harvest in California is boring, anyway - so predictable. :)
