Harvest Update:  Harvest continues at a quick pace with good quality grapes and a greater than expected quantity of grapes for most of our varieties.  This week, Traminette, Maréchal Foch, and Chancellor were harvested....and the countdown continues.  Four varieties will be harvest in the weeks to come: Chambourcin, Riesling, Vidal Blanc and Concord.
