2016 Harvest Update at EIEIO: Yates Conwill Vineyard

Even with the weirdest weather over the past eight months, this is proving to be a beautiful harvest. The heat has not caused any predicted weirdness in fermentations or grape ripeness other than ripeness numbers which are higher than normal at this point in the year.  Friends, customers and fellow winemakers are all out helping as these are easy days.  Sorting is barely even needed as the fruit is perfect.  Letting it hang is the smart thing to do. – Jay
