Vintage Watch XII

Harvests are ending, harvests are starting, we are in the thick of it

Vintage Watch XII This is really crunch time. Folks in cooler areas and those regions that may have suffered a slow start to the season and/or have particularly late ripening grapes to worry about can now commence worrying! We're officially entering autumn and temperatures all over the place have started to settle in to their slow decline, sometimes brining rain or fog with them. Rain or fog that can end the high hopes of even the most optimistic grower.

I don't know for how much longer I might be publishing Vintage Watch seeing as the many spots on this list are closing in on the end of harvest, but for the sake of the late harvests in Oregon, Piedmont, Germany, and Austria I'll see how long I have to keep a record of the weather, if only on the site. For today though one finale full report on weather around the globe.

    Napa and Sonoma got rain over the weekend--a quick burst, and it looks like it could be fine, but the timing was not favorable. Looking like a nice week ahead and we should see harvests wrapping up over the next two weeks, if I had to guess.

    Re Napa, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Contra Costa and Alameda Counties - Sat was about 25mm of rain where 2-3mm were expected.
