Harvest Progress Report – A Photo Essay

It’s been a fast-progressing harvest season in Dry Creek Valley this year. Check out photos of our wineries getting into the thick of it. Grapes for sparkling wines came in first, followed by sauvignon blanc. Even in our 16 mile long appellation, location and microclimate means that grapes ripen at different rates.
