"GAME ON!" - a frenzied announcement from our vineyard manager on Tuesday.
We have harvested! This week was such a whirlwind that we don't even have photos to share right now.
The 2015 harvest is about 3 weeks ahead of schedule for us, and this is due to a combination of heat and drought conditions. On Monday, temperatures reached 92 degrees, and in that kind of weather the grapes were getting ready to burn baby burn. No one wants raisin wine...
Heads Up: Richard Partridge Wines will be donating 10% of every sale made during the month of October to the Breast Cancer Research Fund (bcrfcure.org). We'll be announcing this on a wider scale next week!
