Wine of the Week

| Entertainment | September 5, 2019

by Beth Heiserman, Reyes Winery

This past Monday Reyes Winery started harvesting our Chardonnay. At 6 am we started to pick our grapes, it was a beautiful morning and not too hot. Three years ago we had harvested our Chardonnay in the beginning of August, whereas this year we started at the beginning of September. There is no actual set date when you pick the grapes. The season is generally August through October of when they could possibly be ready. We have now picked all of our grapes. It is one of the things that I enjoy every year that I get to participate in.

Once we finished harvesting the Chardonnay we moved onto the Muscat. We finished both fields in two days. We take a day off and then we continue with our Syrah, which will be harvested this week as well. Then we will wait for our Merlot and Cabernet seven young to be ready in order for us to pick. Hopefully that will be ready sometime next week. The birds have not been friendly and they have started to eat the grapes. Besides the birds not being my friends, the squirrels are more of an enemy than anything.

This coming weekend is our quarterly pick up party for our members. If you’re not a member you are more than welcome to come and see what we do here. Lunch is offered to everybody at $15 a person which includes a glass of wine. Tastings are $12 per person. Hope to see you this weekend!
