Harvest is upon us!!!
We should be picking our Chardonnay on Monday (maybe as early as this Friday!)
This morning I took cluster samples of the Sangiovese, Syrah, and Zin to how far out they are to pick.
I then crushed the fruit by hand, collected the juice. and used a refractomter (that little telescope looking thing) to test the Brix (the sugar content of the juice).
This info allows me to estimate a picking date.
Can’t wait for the chardonnay to come!!!
