We are sprinting towards harvest if the start date of veraison is an indication. As the crop load in the vineyard is lower the grapes are ripening faster. We are prepared for the bird flocks as the nets are on. From now to harvest the work that can be done in the vineyard is limited. With the nets on in-row weeding is not possible anymore and spray applications for powdery milldew are not possible. Now is the time to empty the tanks and order the yeast to get ready for the new crop to arrive in the winery.
