The “wait and see” game

Today’s rain is not good news for our grapes. The president of the Sonoma County Winegrape Commission, Nick Frey, is quoted in Saturday’s Santa Rosa Press Democrat as saying that the overall crop yield for the 2011 harvest may be the smallest in seven years. The article said that as of a week ago, only about 20 percent of the grapes had been harvested.

We had lovely weather the past few days, and the forecast says we should be back up in the mid-80’s later this week, so we are waiting and seeing and hoping.
