Harvest 2014: We Interviewed Growers About This Year’s Vintage
As summer comes to a close, many Dry Creek Valley wineries are in the midst of harvest season, this time even earlier than last year. We wanted a sense of what it’s like out in the vineyards for this year’s #SCHarvest14, so we contacted several wineries to get a progress report. Several of our WDCV wineries took a few moments out of their hectic harvest schedules to share their unique perspectives with us. Among the many tidbits shared, they let us know where they’re at in the harvest, what challenges they’ve been facing, and their expectations for the wines to come. We’re grateful to Lana Mounts of Mounts Winery, Bill Frick at Frick Winery, Katarina Bonde at West Wines, Andrew Fegelman from Quivira Vineyards and Winery , David Coffaro of David Coffaro Vineyard and Winery, Nick Briggs at Dutcher Crossing Winery and Bill Smart at Dry Creek Vineyard, for answering our questions.
