Dane and friends, our employee Mathew, and 3 neighbors, finished picking the Zinfandel. It took four straight days, because it all had to be sorted carefully (many raisins, due to the hot weather). A very tedious.
We got about 1100 pounds, only half the amount of last year. However, it is tasting excellent. They pressed it today, so we can already tell it is going to be great. We will have one full barrel this year.
