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

In Piedmont on the other hand things are cooling down to where things in the vineyards are slowing down, which s not what people want, considering things remain a week or three behind schedule, and that rain late in the forecast sure isn't going to help anything. Arneis and Barbera might be in, but the big guns are still to come. Nail biting time. It's a small crop so if they can get it properly ripened we might very well be shocked at the quality.

    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.
