Harvest is going great this year so far. We've picked our Merlot from Seven Hills and Les Collines as well as some Syrah from Coyote Canyon and a couple of the whites. We'll likely pick another white, some Syrah and maybe some Tempranillo this week. Here are a few pictures I've taken so far this season. The grapes are in great shape! More to come
