|Picking Marquette grapes at Sampson Valley Vineyard |
September 28, 2013
What a great day for a harvest! .... What a spectacular turnout! .... The harvest party at Sampson Valley Vineyard was incredible this year. We harvested over 6,500 lbs in about 7 hours. The weather was almost perfect. We worked like crazy, and got a lot done.
Most of the grapes were taken by Leigh's Garden Winery, and some by Vines and Rushes Winery. Definitely check out these two wineries. Top notch wines and great people.
We still have to harvest Frontenac for Leigh's Garden Winery on Saturday, Oct 12. The rest of the grapes are destined for home winemakers, and maybe a few for myself.
I added a bunch of other pictures from the weekend below.
