2013 Harvest Started at BookCliff Vineyards

The crew in front of the press
Due to the low crop load and the hot days in late August and September the grapes are ripening quickly in 2013. We started our 2103 harvest with Muscat Blanc. Unfortunately we only harvest about one ton of grapes, as this variety experienced a lot of damage from winter freeze and spring frost. 2013 follows a year of abundance in 2012 where Colorado was blessed with good quantity and quality at the same time.
It looks like the different varieties are ripening quickly and we can expect to crush Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon next week.
